NYF announces six additional executive jury appointments

New York Festivals International Advertising Awards, now in its 56th year, has announced six additional appointments to the 2013 Executive Jury. This elite group of worldwide chief creative officers and executive creative directors has been chosen to select the World’s Best Advertising across all mediums from the shortlist selected by the online Grand Jury.

“We’re looking at arguably the most experienced awards jury going. And in our opinion, their experience and expertise, along with the ability to recognise ground breaking ideas is what makes this jury so unique, and our winners so deserving,” said Michael O’Rourke, President International Awards Group/New York Festivals. “Providing our jury members with the opportunity to evaluate only the shortlist means more time for debate and discussion and it also means that each entry will be given the undivided attention it deserves.”

Recent appointments to the 2013 Executive Jury include:
Kentaro Kimura, Co-CEO, Executive Creative Director & Account Planner, Hakuhodo Kettle, Japan
Nick Law, EVP/Global Chief Creative Officer, R/GA, USA
Martin Pross, Chief Creative Officer, Scholz & Friends, Germany
Andreas Ullenius, Executive Creative Director/Senior Partner, Akestam Holst, Sweden
Debbi Vandeven, Chief Creative Officer, VML, USA
Erik Vervroegen, International Creative Director, Publicis Worldwide, France

Additional Executive Jury appointments will be announced soon.

The Executive Jury will convene in New York City April 27 through May 1. Award-winning entries will be announced at the New York Show awards presentation on Thursday, May 2, at the New York Public Library Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.
