NEW YORK – New York Festivals International Advertising Awards® has announced the 2018 Grand Jury. To date, NYF’s powerhouse 300+ Grand Jury represents the most diverse brain trust of global creative minds in the advertising industry from 50 countries.
From Cape Town to Sao Paolo and Berlin to Tokyo, this esteemed peer-nominated panel provides a 360-degree creative view of the advertising world today. 2018’s Grand Jury is comprised of Chief Creative Officers, Executive Creative Directors, Creative Directors, Art Directors, Copywriters, Executive Producers, and Marketing/PR pro’s all playing a pivotal role in selecting the World’s Best Advertising® winners.
From the Philippines, five top creatives were named to the Grand Jury, namely, Noel San Juan, Creative Director, Leo Burnett Manila, Jake Tesoro, Chief Creative Officer, FCB Manila, Nikki Golez, Creative Director, Dentsu Jayme Syfu, Javey Villones, Creative Director, J. Walter Thompson, and Maan Bautista, Creative Director, McCann Worldgroup Philippines.
“New York Festivals is honored to have these prominent industry creatives participate on the 2018 Grand Jury. This 300-strong creative jury were all nominated by their peers, creatives who were judges themselves last year, and are respected globally for their innovative work and award-winning creative talent,” said Michael Demetriades, President/Executive Director of New York Festivals International Advertising Awards.
Using New York Festivals online judging platform, the Grand Jury will review global entries through two rounds of meticulous judging and select the creative work that merits Finalist Status. These entries will then move on to the medalist round. NYF’s Grand Jury is also the first line of defense, scrutinizing ads to provide security against possible scam ads.
2018’s trophy winning entries will be determined by the 8th annual Executive Jury, an elite panel of 30+ Global CCO’s. The Executive Jury will gather this April in New York City for four rounds of judging across all mediums and select 2018’s First Prize, Second Prize, Third Prize, Grand Award winners, and Best in Show. The members of the 2018 Executive Jury will be announced soon.
“NYF’s juries are dedicated to the process of selecting the World’s Best Advertising, these creatives that are nominated to serve on the jury provide both their time and creative insights to ensure that the best creative work from around the globe is honored,” said Mr. Demetriades. “Their creativity and industry expertise represent the diverse range of creative talent present in today’s international advertising space.”
