New York Festivals International Advertising Awards® has announced the 2018 Grand Jury. NYF’s 300+ Grand Jury taps into global creative minds from 50 countries.
 
From Cape Town to Sao Paola and Berlin to Tokyo, this esteemed peer-nominated panel provides a 360-degree creative view of the advertising world today. 2018’s Grand Jury is comprised of chief creative officers, executive creative directors, creative directors, art directors, copywriters, executive producers, and marketing/PR pros all playing a pivotal role in selecting the World’s Best Advertising® winners.
 
“New York Festivals is honored to have these prominent industry creatives participate on the 2018 Grand Jury. This 300-strong creative jury were all nominated by their peers, creatives who were judges themselves last year, and are respected globally for their innovative work and award-winning creative talent,” said Michael Demetriades, president/executive director of New York Festivals International Advertising Awards.
 
Using New York Festivals online judging platform, the Grand Jury will review global entries through two rounds of meticulous judging and select the creative work that merits Finalist Status. These entries will then move on to the medalist round. NYF’s Grand Jury is also the first line of defense, scrutinizing ads to provide security against possible scam ads.
 
2018’s trophy winning entries will be determined by the 8th annual Executive Jury, an elite panel of 30+ Global CCO’s. The Executive Jury will gather this April in New York City for four rounds of judging across all mediums and select 2018’s First Prize, Second Prize, Third Prize, Grand Award winners, and Best in Show. The members of the 2018 Executive Jury will be announced soon.
