This year’s jury was led by North American Chief Creative Officer of Deutsch Pete Favat, This year’s show provided a twist — the jury deliberated live from Deutsch production facilities in Los Angeles.
“For me, the highlight of the live judging was the student competition,” stated Favat. “At its core, educating folks about why awards are given is what this is all about. How cool is it for students who are hoping to someday have a career in advertising to hear some of the most high-level creative talent in our industry talking about their work?”
