The first wave of jurors has been announced for this year’s Immortal Awards, the international advertising award from Little Black Book. This year’s jury includes Aussie expat Jen Speirs (pictured), executive creative director at Rothco and former deputy ECD at BMF Sydney.
Comprised of industry leading names from the worlds of brand, agency, production and post-production, the jury will decide which – if any – projects will be deemed Immortal at this year’s awards.
On this year’s jury are winners from the inaugural Immortal Awards, including Martina Poulopati, global brand communications at Essity, Nadja Lossgott, creative partner at AMV BBDO and Sally Campbell, CEO and founder of Somesuch.
Also revealed are Mark Tutssel, executive chairman and global chief creative officer, Leo Burnett Worldwide, Vicki Maguire, chief creative officer of Grey London and Ronald Ng, Isobar’s global chief creative officer.
Completing the initial announcement are Jose Miguel Sokoloff, president of MullenLowe Group Creative Council and chief creative officer, MullenLowe Group UK, Jen Speirs, executive creative director of Rothco and Sergio Lopez, chief production officer of McCANN Worldgroup EMEA.
Says Paul Monan, awards director: “Following on from a wonderful debut year for the Immortal Awards, we’ve been working incredibly hard on this year’s jury and are delighted to finally reveal the first few names. This really is a world class jury of creatives from all aspects of the industry and we can’t wait for them to debate this year’s entries. The bar was set high by our inaugural jury, who awarded just four trophies last year, and to have a number of those behind last year’s winning work on our jury is exciting. These are the guys creating the best work of the last few years, and they complement the sheer volume of experience the rest of our jurors possess.”
