“I was delighted to be asked to sit on the grand judging panel. The AC&E Awards is moving the industry in the right direction – to only reward marketing and advertising that resonates on the creativity front but equally delivers impressive business results. I will be looking for top creative work that demonstrates innovative methods, strategy and thinking outside the box mentality along with ROI,” said McCann’s Baron.
“Whilst I appreciate creative that gets talked about, ultimately a campaign must deliver return on investment so I will be looking for the finest creative work that also delivered profitable results, achieved its objectives and went above and beyond to deliver to the business and customer,” added Qantas’ Stephanie Tully.
