As reported earlier, David Nobay, ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi, Sydney has been elected foreman of the Radio jury.
The Aussie list of jurors so far comprises:

Danny Searle, ECD of Clemenger BBDO, Sydney -- PRESS ADVERTISING
David Nobay, ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi, Sydney -- RADIO (foreman)
Matt Devine, The Glue Society, Sydney -- INTEGRATED
Bob Mackintosh, Host, Sydney -- Viral
Gary Freedman, The Glue Society, NYC -- TV & CINEMA CRAFTS
Gary Dawson, Clemenger BBDO, Sydney -- WRITING FOR ADVERTISING
James de Vries, De Luxe & Associates, Sydney -- MAGAZINE & NEWSPAPER DESIGN

what is the pre-requisite to judge on D&AD? All the Aussie judges are the top of their game and running the biggest creative departments in the country then you’re left scratching your head with the NZ judges. I know the girl from TBWA cleaned up last year with Be The Ball, but does that alone qualify you for D&AD judging? I assumed you had to be the best in the business to be asked to judge, not just have won awards off the back of one piece.

Has the whole creative department resigned and this is a suits idea? They'll think it's genius. It reeks of an agency with a terminal illness. It's a shame to see the end of a more fruitful time. sigghhhhhhh.

Wow 5:35! I'm not 3:47 and I don't even know who Devine is, but when the fuck did it become a crime to give your mate a slap on the back? I reckon you're a smelly, gaping fuck hole.
