“It is an honour to be asked to be a judge. I am fully aware of the blood, sweat and tears that go into the very best work. To review case studies from around the world and to be able to recognise clients and agencies for delivering excellence against such competition is fantastic and I take the role of a judge as a serious one. 

"What I hope to see is creativity that has had a real business and brand impact. An idea, expressed as an eloquent story, shared from one person to the next as it connects into a human truth. A strategy that is fundamentally interesting, cuts through and is amplified to the maximum in every and a concept that conclusively changes something; a business, a brand, a product, a positioning to deliver tangible unequivocal business results.”
