Amongst the proud winners in Africa were top agencies like Edelman, We Communications, Weber-Shandwick, Burson-Marsteller and prominent companies like Intel, Unilever, Nike, NBCUniversal and many more.

Fatma El Zahraa Ahmed, Founder and Managing Director of MEAComS, says she is ecstatic and proud to represent Egypt at the African Excellence Awards this year as MEAComS heads towards a decade of dedication and hard work in the Public Relations and Communications industry in Egypt.

Ms. Ahmed stated that ‘the award celebrates our annual external newsletter that details our work, passion, struggles and successes that we share with our clients and followers via digital media.’ She thanked her long-time friend and art director, Hana Ibrahim, for being a vital power source behind this win with her dedication to not only her work but all the branding and design work that she has been doing for MEAComS over the past decade. She also added that “This decade long relationship with Hana Ibrahim has been a fundamental nod towards women working to empower other women and we hope to continue this as we move forward with our successes.”

MEAComS were also the proud winners of an African Excellence Award last year for their corporate video that celebrated their 7 years in business through an interactive video that was shared across the digital platforms. Having a great team and the clients that MEAComS works with has been the foundation of this win. MEAComS has many renowned companies in their repertoire such as Shell Lubricants Egypt, Blumberg, Cambridge, and Lagardere Sports.
