Campaign Middle East closes down?

February 15th, 2007 Samer Marzouq


If reports by bloggers and various sources are to be believed, the marketing communications publication Campaign ME is officially shut down.

The blog of Flip Media reports that Haymarket, a UK based firm that holds the license for Campaign ME, has pulled the license from IITP the current publishing house of Campaign ME.

Campaign ME website was missing over the last weekend as reported by Farrukh Naeem, the website redirects the user to the website of Arabian Business, which is another publication by ITP.

At the beginning readers thought it’s a problem in the domain redirecting to another URL but apparently this is not the case.

Without a doubt, Campaign ME had carved a leading position as a premier source for all marketing and media professionals in the Middle East. The year 2006 was a successful one for the publication, as it organized creative and media awards events and also organized it’s first conference during the Media & Marketing Show 2006.

But unfortunately, the year 2007 seems to mark the end of this publications existence in the Middle East. Or maybe not? Stay tuned!

    I have a suggestion for the first new edition of Campaign Middle East. PLAGIARISM.

    I recently encountered a blatant case of plagiarism. An ad entered in to the Dubai Lynx awards and received shortlist status – only to be discovered as a copy of an ad created by an agency called 1pointsize in Chennai, India.

    The agency in question: Memac Ogilvy Bahrain. It is disgusting that creatives are turning to plagiarising other peoples work to submit ghost ads to award shows.

    We need to stop this.
