AWARD are pleased to announce the salubrious panel of judges and the best Call for Entry result in seven years.
Joining the auspicious line-up of judges from Asia, New Zealand and Australia AWARD welcomes Chris Garbutt, TBWA\Paris and Leo Premutico, Saatchi & Saatchi New York.
Representation from Asia is at an all time high, including Prangthip Pradipong, Creative Juice\G1 Bangkok, Sheung Yan Lo, JWT Shanghai,
Weerachon Weeraworawit, BBDO Bangkok, Eugene Cheong, Ogilvy & Mather Singapore, David Guerrero, BBDO Guerrero Oretga, Manila and Tay Guan Hin, JWT South East Asia.
Says Toby Talbot (pictured), ECD DDB New Zealand and Chairman of Judges: “Once more, the finest minds in our business will descend on Sydney like a plague of erudite locusts for two weeks of intense judging. It will be fun. It always is. But this year promises to be really tough too. AWARD is now big enough to showcase some of the very best work in the world. It’s not a small, parochial show. It is, after all, the only show that truly represents Australia, New Zealand and Asia. To get in the book should be an honour. To win metal, you will have had to have done something world class. Last year was a record year for Australia at Cannes. This year, the Kiwis shone. Asia had another strong year. We must be doing something right. Let’s hope this year’s AWARD reflects this very positive trend “.
AWARD Judging will be held in Sydney, September 24th until October 5th ; 59 Judges will fly in from interstate and overseas, making a total of 95 who will decide the finalists and winners, the latter heralded at the AWARD Presentation Evening November 30th at CarriageWorks, Eveliegh Railyards Sydney.
AWARD Entry numbers are at a seven year high, with a surge in interactive and TV Craft entries, the latter a positive reflection in the wake of the important merger of the KODAK Gongs and AWARD earlier this year.
Says Co-Chairmen of AWARD Philip Putnam and Paul Prince: “The 2007 AWARD
Membership, The Committee, Chairman of Judges Toby Talbot and AWARD Management have assembled a truly great line up of Judges for AWARD 2007, one that truly represents the best of our peers, and one that pays homage to the near 30-year Legacy of AWARD."

You have to understand that with the ever increasing number of advertising awards they have worked out that by 2009 there will be more judges needed than there are creatives in the industry.
Plans are being put in place to allow family members of creative people to become judges and also to take advantage of the huge number of students comgin out of ad schools. Rather than go into advertising careers they will just go straight to judging. Till then it is up to all creatives to help out. Show you care about the fragile under recognised egos in advertising. Become a judge.
