AKQA's Rei Inamoto is AdFest 2014's Grand Jury President

Digital influencer Rei Inamoto, CCO & VP at AKQA in New York, is joining AdFest 2014 as Grand Jury President.

At AdFest 2014, Inamoto will preside over the Interactive Lotus and Mobile Lotus as its Jury President, and also head the panel comprising of other Jury Presidents in judging the Integrated Lotus, Innova Lotus, Lotus Roots, and the Grande of Humanity. He will also be a Keynote Speaker on the final day of the festival.

“In a world where the only certainty is change, we can’t quite predict the future. But what we can do is to create it. AdFest is a celebration of today’s best creativity. It’ll undoubtedly give us a better idea of what the future holds. As Grand Jury President, I look forward to discovering the glimpse of tomorrow for our industry,” said Inamoto.

Inamoto has played a pivotal role in growing AKQA’s reputation as an ideas and innovation company. He oversees creative solutions for clients such as Audi, Google, Nike and Xbox. He is also a member of Google’s Creative Council.

“Rei is one of the most awarded digital creatives in the world. He is also a thought-leader who believes advertising as we know it has come to an end. We are honoured to welcome him to AdFest 2014, where as Grand Jury President, delegates will learn so much from his experiences as a creative leader at one of the world’s most innovative agencies,” said Jimmy Lam, President, AdFest.

Meanwhile, AdFest has extended the entries deadline for the categories of Radio Lotus, Interactive Lotus, Mobile Lotus, Integrated Lotus, Innova Lotus and Other Film under Film Lotus (described as its ‘remote’ categories, because judging commences prior to AdFest 2014) until Friday, January 3, 2014.

Entries to all other Lotus categories close on Friday, January 10, 2014. There are 17 Lotus categories in total, including the inaugural Media Lotus category.

Script submissions to Fabulous Four (which is part of the New Director Lotus) close on Friday, December 20, 2013.

AdFest 2014 will take place on March 6-8 at the Royal Cliff Hotels Group in Pattaya, Thailand.
