This year’s Montreux jury includes Frank Bodin of Havas Switzerland, Peter Sun of Y&R, Mike Sutherland of BBDO London, Luis Dias of Draft FCB Lisbon, Max Posch of Fashion TV, and Olivier Teepe, Founder of Cloudfactory, Netherlands.

Ajay Chandwani, Director, Percept is also on the jury this year, with Asian participation rising at the Festival. Speaking on the Awards, Chandwani said, “Montreux is a great Festival to see the world’s best work before the work hits Cannes and other festivals.”

BBDO New York and AMV BBDO from UK dominated the Golds won last year. Being Pan European in focus, with American and European agencies doing well in the past, the Montreux Festival has been gaining awareness in India and Asia.

Last year, Leo Burnett India won two Golds in Print Craft for Bajaj Exhaust Fans, while BBH India won a Gold in the TV film category for World Gold Council.
