The One Club, a non-profit organization recognizing creative excellence in all forms of advertising, design and marketing communications, today announced the juries for the 2016 One Show Awards.
KV Sridhar, Ashish Khanzanchi, and Rohit Devgun are the Indian jurors amongst over a hundred leading creatives from 20 countries across six continents who will judge the best creative work from around the world.
Prasoon Joshi, Chairman Asia Pacific, McCann, is the only board member from India.
“It’s an honor and privilege to be a part of "The One Show Jury” especially an award you have personally cherished winning over the years. Looking forward to learn anew and share anew,” said KV Sridhar “Pops”, Chief Creative Officer, India, SapientNitro, who will be part of the Mobile Jury.
"I've grown up learning from the one show annuals, which incidentally, even till date are never more than at an arms length from me. To be judging this show, is to be shaping the minds of the next generation of creatives. A rare privilege indeed,” said Ashish Khazanchi, Managing Partner at Enormous who will be part of the Print & Outdoor Jury.
“It's indeed an honour to be on the jury of one of the world’s most respected award shows. I look forward to judging the year's best and bravest work from around the world. The fact that I’ll be meeting some of the greatest creative brains makes it all the more special,” said Rohit Devgun, Senior Creative Director, McCann Worldgroup, who will be part of the Design Jury.
Judges will exclusively review submissions within the disciplines to which they have been assigned, including Cross-Platform, Direct, Film, Interactive, Mobile, Print & Outdoor, Radio, Social Media and UX/UI.
Juries for Design, Branded Entertainment, IP & Products, Responsive Environments and Public Relations will be added later this month.
Last year, more than 20,000 entries from 65 countries were submitted – a number that is expected to grow on account of The One Club's International Board of Directors.
