The Agency also won on the Radio category for SPAR and in the Craft: Art Direction section for Toyota Zimbabwe and Toyota Zambia.

Jericho Advertising, barely a year old, had a good night at the Ngoma awards dinner on 31 March 2011, winning the Mail & Guardian Print Series Campaign Award for 2010 with the CBZ Bank Partners for Success campaign.

The agency also scooped runner up in the Craft: Art Direction category for the Toyota Zimbabwe and Toyota Zambia 2011 calendar.

The third award for Jericho was also a runner-up award in the radio advert category for the SPAR Back To School Radio Ad.

Collected by Ashley Mhonda, the Creative Director at Jericho, the awards firmly establish Jericho as the agency to watch in the country.

Considered by far the fastest-growing agency in Zimbabwe, Jericho already has on its books Zimbabwe's biggest and most profitable bank, CBZ Bank, Nandos Zimbabwe, Toyota Zimbabwe, Athienitis SPAR, Powertel Communications, iWayAfrica Zimbabwe, Willdale Bricks, Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe, Number 1 Stores, South African Airways, Sino-Zim Development Company and Old Mutual as clients.

"We are not even at 10% of what we should be yet," says Ashley Mhonda, the Creative Director.

Jericho Advertising Zimbabwe specifically intends to become the first world-class advertising agency to come out of Zimbabwe.

With a start such as this, there is no doubt that the agency is well on its way.
