CB CAPTURES ADFEST MOMENTS
While the two award presentations lacked previous sparkle and excitement there was plenty of good work and good times at AdFest, held over four days in Pattaya, Thailand late last week.
AdFest, the region's most popular awards festival, celebrated its 10th anniversary this year and a panel of 51 judges across nine categories viewed 5012 entries. In total around 1600 delegates attended including Campaign Brief Asia with camera in hand.
Big name judges included Dave Droga from Droga5 USA and TBWA worldwide CD John Hunt from TBWA\Hunt Lascaris, Johannesburg. Special guests included former Leo Burnett worldwide CD Michael Conrad and Donald Gunn.
Big parties were thrown by McCann-Erickson, Dentsu and BBDO. More intimate gatherings we also attended were hosted by TBWA, JWT, Adobo Manila and Matching Studio Bangkok.
Here are some great moments from AdFest.
