The 2006 Radio Lions and Lions Direct juries were announced today by the organisers of the 53rd Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.
The Lions Direct jury, led by Steve Harrison, Creative Director, Harrison Troughton Wunderman and Worldwide Creative Director, Wunderman, will meet in Cannes and commence voting on 14 June. The awards will be presented on 19 June. Chaired by Guillaume van der Stighelen, Copywriter and Creative Partner of Duval Guillaume Belgium, the Radio Lions jury will begin judging in Cannes on 16 June. The winners will be announced on Tuesday 20 June.
“After the successful launch of Radio Lions last year, with the jury unanimously delighted in the effectiveness of judging the entries in their original language, this year’s jury will once again be looking to award creative excellence in this increasingly creative category”, said Terry Savage, Executive Chairman of the Festival. “We are also enormously proud that the Lions Direct category has, in just a few years, become the most prestigious international DM competition and winning a Lion, the most sought-after trophy. This year’s top judges will once again be looking to set creative high standards in the industry”, added Savage.
Australia is represented on the Radio Lions jury by Michael Edmonds, Creative Director of Meerkats, Perth and on the Lions Direct jury by Dave King, National Creative Director, Direct, M&C Saatchi Australia.
