A call to Advertising Critics in Egypt

For one reason or another, we're all interested in what the advertising scene in Egypt brings forth. We review it, we critique it, we spill our two cents and most of the time (well we try really) we're being reasonable and we're not talking out of our asses. A lot of us have actually worked in advertising, or have been focused on it for years. We understand it, (at some point perhaps even liked it) and we care about the end result.

So here's my suggestion. Let's create an unofficial Advertising Authority. Let's be the entity that reviews ads in Egypt and make our voices heard, and most of all, matter. Let's pool our resources, points of views, and create a sort of Rotten Tomatoes like portal where we can rate ads, criticize them (as constructively as we can) and who knows, maybe we'll end up making a difference in the shit people have to bare with night and day between the shows they actually WANT to watch.

It's time advertising agencies and their clients pay attention to some detail, get their act together, and make some decent advertising material.

Who's in?
