The jury for Gerety 2020 has been announced and we’re pleased to see six women from the MullenLowe Group network judging the best in advertising through the female lens.
The Gerety 2020 all female power jury includes more than 170 agency and brand leaders from 30 different countries. Knowing that 80% of all purchasing decisions are made by women and that award shows have been judged overtly by men over the years, the Gerety Awards sets an important distinction when defining the standard to which advertising should be held.
The Grand Jury brings together agency and brand leaders who judge the final round and define the winners and includes:
Garima Khandelwal, Chief Creative Officer of Mullen Lintas
Kelly Fredrickson, President of MullenLowe Boston & MullenLowe New York
This year’s executive jury sessions will be held in New York, London, Helsinki, Berlin, Johannesburg, Istanbul, Melbourne, Madrid, Buenos Aires and Bangkok. As well as defining the overall shortlist these juries will choose agency and production company of the year from their country. Members of the executive juries from MullenLowe Group are:
Madrid Jury: Amaya Coronado, CEO, LOLA MullenLowe
Johannesburg Jury: Sarah Dexter, CEO, MullenLowe South Africa
London Jury: Katrina Enchanto, Creative Director, MullenLowe London
Buenos Aires Jury: Marta Falcucci, CFO, Ponce Buenos Aires
Named for Frances Gerety, the copywriter who coined the slogan “A diamond is forever,” the Gerety Awards sets the very highest benchmark for creativity in advertising. All types of media can be entered into any of the Gerety Awards 10 categories called CUTS, (like a diamond) Media, Innovation, Entertainment, Communication, Craft, Experience, Works for Good, Health, Pharma and Portfolios. All advertising works broadcast between January 2019 and the deadline are eligible for entry and the works are judged on two criteria: originality of the idea and its execution.
