Clio Sports, the competition honouring creative excellence in sports marketing and advertising on a global scale, has announced its 2019 jury.

“With each passing year, the sports industry continues to push the boundaries on advertising and marketing,” Howard, who is the vice president of corporate partnerships at the LA Lakers, said.
“As someone who is constantly on the lookout for innovative ideas to generate conversations, I’m thrilled to be a part of the jury that will select the most impactful creative work from a year that was so full of slam dunks.”
As part of their duties, the jurors will convene in New York City in early May to evaluate an international pool of submissions across multiplatform categories and determine the work that most elevated sports culture in the collective consciousness this year.
The winners of the sixth annual Clio Sports Awards will be honoured at an exclusive event on 13 June 2019 at Capitale in New York City.
Clio president Nicole Purcell said: “From the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang to the World Cup in Russia, Serena Williams at the US Open to Nick Foles at the Super Bowl, the past year has been full of memorable moments, rising stars and unexpected viral sensations.
“For us, it’s the creative work leading up to those moments that permeate pop culture and enhance the way we experience sports.
“We are so excited to gather the esteemed members of this year’s jury of industry leaders and game-changers to reflect on, evaluate and celebrate the most influential work of the 2018-2019 season.”
Clio Sports is currently accepting submissions in all categories, including Branded Entertainment & Content, Digital/Mobile, Experiential/Events and Social Good. For information, submission deadlines and to enter work, click here.
