Yeah I think that was 'Young Director' - 'New Director' is..... new. Let's make sure to tell them they shouldn't enter categories they're valid for in future.

C'mon people - it's very important that yet another irrelevant award is given in this industry. We need more of them to keep the client billings high despite the lack of accountability and results.

It's becoming more and more difficult to get good work on the reel for any new director. Realistically a director working in commercials for 5 years would be someone I'd consider "New"
