New Zealand will have have a record six jurors at Cannes this year, as a result of recent success at the world's biggest ad festival. Festival chief, Australia's Terry Savage (pictured) told NZCC that the number of jurors allocated per country depends on the lion haul over the last three years. According to Savage, NZ is definitely punching above its weight.
Kiwis going to Cannes this year:
Film Lions: Mike O’Sullivan (Saatchi & Saatchi)
Outdoor Lions: Duster (Clemenger BBDO)
Direct Lions: Andy Blood (TBWA\Whybin)
Promo Lions: Wayne Pick (Tequila)
Media Lions: Kevin Blight (Mitchells)
And last but not least, the Cyber Lions Jury President this year will be Tom Eslinger, worldwide CD - Interactive of Saatchi & Saatchi. Eslinger splits his time between Auckland and Los Angeles but will be listed as representing New Zealand!
