JWT’s Lo Sheung Yan – known as Mayan – will be leading the judging of the 2013 AWARD Awards.
Mayan (pictured), who is JWT’s Asia Pacific creative council chairman, has worked in the industry since 1996.
Craig Davis, chairman of AWARD, said: “No-one knows more about creativity in Asia than Mayan. He’s shown the world repeatedly how good Asian creativity can be. And with his deep understanding of the Chinese market, he will be a wonderful contributor to Circus.”
The other AWARD chairs tasked with selecting the 2013 AWARD Award winners are: Dave King (M&C Saatchi), Michael Ritchie (Revolver), Dave Bowman (Whybin\TBWA), Micah Walker (The Monkeys), Philip Andrew (Clemenger BBDO), Spencer Battista (Cooch Creative), Iain McDonald (Amnesia), Julian Melhuish (Churchward Melhuish Designs) and Michelle Hutton (Edelman).
