BACK TO JUDGE NY FESTIVALS
Steve Back, the incoming ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi, is just one of the high profile judges New York Festivals has secured for the 2008 International Advertising competition. Other judges both in Australia and New Zealand are soon to be announced.
The call for entries for the competition is now open. This year the organizers have simplified the submission process and reorganized our competition into nine easily navigable categories:
TV/Cinema, Print, Design, Outdoor, Mixed Media, Radio, Collateral and two new categories: student, and art and craft. The new art and craft category includes photography, illustration, copy-writing, art direction as well as significantly more areas in production execution in radio and tv and cinema. In addition several new categories including Gay/Lesbian Advertising, Olympic Theme/Sponsorship and Political Advertisements have also been added. The discount deadline for entries is December 10, 2007 and final deadline is January 14 2008.
