CAPE TOWN - KwaZulu-Natal has outbid the Western Cape to host the 2015 Loerie Awards.

The City of Cape Town has traditionally hosted the prominent advertising awards ceremony.

Next year the awards will be held in Durban.

Chairman of the Loeries, Neo Mashego, says it shouldn't come as a surprise that the awards have changed location.

"It won't be the first time the Loerie Awards go to KwaZulu-Natal. It was also held in Margate for a bit so it's not going to be a completely new move for people. It won't be a big shock."
