ADFEST appoints Josy Paul as Jury President, Media Lotus and Branded Content & Entertainment Lotus

Josy Paul, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer at BBDO India, will be joining ADFEST as Jury President, Media Lotus and Branded Content & Entertainment Lotus.

Speaking about his appointment as Jury President, Paul says, “It is a huge privilege to be selected to lead this prestigious Jury, working alongside the industry’s most respected and awarded creatives. There are agencies in Asia and the Middle East that are leading the world when it comes to producing brave, impactful media concepts and branded content. I live by the mantra ‘Think like the navy, deliver like pirates’, which means I’ll be looking for work that is both strategic and powerfully executed. It’s going to be a lot of fun debating the industry’s best ideas.”

“Josy has led the way in India as a creative professional who is determined to make the world a better place through impactful branded content and creativity. It will be an honor to welcome him to Thailand in March,” says Jimmy Lam, ADFEST President.

Before founding BBDO India, Paul was the National Creative Director of JWT. In 2000, he also created and set up an agency called 'David' for Ogilvy and is ranked among the 10 most influential people in Indian advertising, according to a nationwide survey conducted by The Economic Times.

ADFEST 2016 runs from 16th – 19th March at the Royal Cliff Hotels Group in Pattaya, Thailand.
