TUTSSEL TO JUDGE AWARD
Mark Tutssel, Worldwide Chief Creative Officer of Leo Burnett, will chair the TV and Cinema jury of AWARD this year, which will take place in Sydney in early October. AWARD will be confirming a second high profile international guest judge shortly.
“We have made concerted efforts to get the top talent from Australia, New Zealand and Asia and to spread them around the various juries”, says Chairman of Judges Paul Catmur, Executive Creative Director DDB New Zealand.
Of particular interest is the ‘None of the Above’ jury, which this year will also judge Mixed Media. None of the Above is defined as ‘Not a traditional media idea, not an innovative media idea, not a media idea at all. Just an idea.’
Says Catmur: “In this way we hope to circumvent the problems involving the Titanium juries in Cannes who have been responsible for some curious decisions since the concept was introduced. This jury will be heavily weighted with a number of CDs and will be the equal if not surpass the TV and Print juries in terms of experience and talent. In this way, AWARD wants to recognise the thinking that sets new benchmarks for the way we do our work as well as the beautifully crafted advertisements that are rarely seen outside AWARD books.”
Previously the print panel has judged None of the Above, whilst the television panel has judged Mixed Media.
AWARD Call for Entry is closing soon, with television submissions due by the end of the week and print due 4th August.
