AWARD chairman Mike Spirkovski said: “For the first time, the jurors have been selected from a combination of creatives, agency CEOs, client CMOs, planners, directors, and production company specialists.

“These leading industry professionals have been responsible for creating some of our region’s best work and know what it takes to consistently deliver award-winning ideas.

“The decision to do this was to ensure the work is judged by extremely qualified jurors who are highly respected in the industry.

“Running for 39 years, the AWARD Awards have become a huge annual celebration and a respected benchmark for creative excellence in our region.

“Each year, we rely on the support of our industry’s top talent to help identify and set those standards, and as anyone who has judged in the AWARD Awards before will understand, it is no quick and easy task.

“I would therefore like to thank our impressive list of judges in advance for what will be a rigorous few weeks ahead.”

The annual AWARD Awards presentation will take place on Friday 25 May at CarriageWorks as part of the three-day Semi-Permanent festival of creativity and design.
