Dubai Advertising Festival juries announced

The Dubai International Advertising Festival has announced the members of its four juries for the 2010 edition.

According to the organisers, a group of 21 leading creatives and media experts from 10 different countries will meet in Dubai to judge, discuss and award the best creative work and ideas of the region this year.

The TV/Cinema, Print, Outdoor and Radio Jury will also judge the Craft category, which launches this year, awarding excellence of craft technique over and above the creative idea of the work.

The integrated jury will be chaired by David Nobay, Creative Chairman of Droga5 in Australia, who also leads the Direct, Sales Promotion and Interactive Jury, and is made up of members of the three juries, including jury presidents Amir Kassaei and Barry Cupples.

“With ideas and creative parameters that are unique to the region, the work goes from strength to strength. As such, we have brought together a strong group of international high-calibre experts whose decisions will lead the region’s industry forward,” said Philip Thomas, CEO of Cannes Lions, who, along with Motivate Publishing, organises the festival.

The TV/Cinema, Print, Outdoor, Radio and Craft Jury will be led by Amir Kassaei, Chief Creative Officer, DDB Group, Germany. Barry Cupples, CEO Asia Pacific, Omnicom Media Group, Singapore, will be president of the Media Jury.

The winners will be revealed at the prominent Dubai Lynx Awards Ceremony and Dinner, taking place at The Palladium on the evening of 17 March.
