110 Strong Jury to Judge 36th AWARD Awards

110 Strong Jury to Judge 36th AWARD Awards

AWARD, Australia’s pre-eminent creative industries body, today announces the line-up of judges for the 36th AWARD Awards, who will work under Chairman of Judges, Dan Wieden (Wieden+Kennedy).

Selected Chairmen judging alongside Dan include:

Ralph Van Dijk – Eardrum

Tim Buesing – Reactive

Pat Baron – McCann

Toby Talbot – DDB Group

Cameron Blackley – BMF

Jason Little – For The People

Tom Spicer – Arnold Furnace

Michael Ritchie – Revolver

James Mok – FCB

Leon Wilson – CHE Proximity

A total of 110 of Asia Pacific’s creatives will be tasked with selecting the 36th AWARD Award winners, with the first jury starting on 28th January 2015.

Mark Harricks, Chairman of AWARD, said: “We are delighted to announce such an impressive list of judges for the 36th AWARD Awards. A lot of work goes into selecting panels with the right mix of networks, skills and experience, while ensuring new and fresh perspectives are introduced each time. Working within these requirements, gender diversity has also been a key focus this year. We have secured more than double the number of female leaders for our jury compared to last year. Obviously this still isn’t the balance we are looking to achieve, but it is a positive step forward.”

The annual AWARD Awards presentation will take place on Thursday 19th March 2015 at Sydney Town Hall.

Final judges line-up includes:
