10 Golden Kancils?

The Kancil Awards 2009 is a sign of how we have grown as an industry, and how 'advertising' has evolved in sync with people's lifestyle. By emulating the international award shows and splitting up the work into 10 different categories, each with its own Golden Kancil, the 4As is giving due recognition to the significance of the fast rising categories.

Back in 2007 when there was only one Golden Kancil, the five or six Golds contending for this ultimate honour were a mix of film, digital and print entries. The judging must have been like comparing apple, orange and rambutan to see which is better.

This year, it is good to see standards being maintained somewhat, with Gold still being a rarity. And only two Golden Kancils were awarded.

Print used to be Malaysia's greatest strength. Now it is Film and Digital. Although, without our much beloved Yasmin, it will be interesting to see who picks up her torch.

The Digital Golden Kancil

IF Interactive's Golden Kancil is touching in its simplicity and rich in meaning. Very Zen, like San Yen himself. Click on the title of this post to view and reflect.

Terry Fox Run KL 2009


Sunday 1 November 2009 Flag off @ 9.00 a.m.

Taman Tasik Perdana (Lake Gardens)

On the Road of Hope for cancer research

Terry Fox knew personally, the importance of the need for cancer research. At the age of 18, he was told that his right leg had to be amputated above the knee as a result of bone cancer. During this crucial period, Terry saw the intense pain and despair of other cancer victims and was deeply moved. In order to raise funds for cancer research, he decided to run across Canada asking for donations. This became “The Marathon of Hope”. Terry Fox died before he could complete his crusade, but his legacy is carried in the hearts of all who participate or donate to the Terry Fox Run each year around the world.

How the Marathon of Hope began:

Since it began in 1983, the Terry Fox Run has become the largest, single-day, fund-raising event for cancer research. Here in KL, the organisers aim to continue the quest to keep Terry’s dream alive. This year, with the support of sponsors and participants, we hope to raise both funds and awareness for cancer research here in Kuala Lumpur. The beneficiary in previous years and this year as well is the Cancer Research Initiatives Foundation (CARIF). You too, can take up the quest so that Terry’s dream of finding a cure for cancer can become a reality.
