The sixth Maputo International Advertising Festival takes place from 25-27 May. Organised by the Mozambican Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations Association (AMEP) the festival promotes the work of international advertising agencies, producers and communications companies, with a particular focus on Africa and the Indian Ocean regions.

Awards are presented to designers and firms whose creativity and originality contribute to the development of the international, and particularly the African, advertising market.

The categories include tv/cinema, radio, print, poster, billboard, website and internet ad campaigns. All entries must have been published between 1 April 2010 and 30 April 2011.

A jury of 11 professionals from Mozambique and other countries will judge the competition entries and allocate prizes accordingly. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 27 May held at the Girassol Indy Congress Hotel & Spa in Maputo.
