"I’m excited to judge the awards as I’m looking forward to seeing what can be created without the usual constraints/self-censorship we face during our day-to-day jobs. Developing a stunning idea for a client you wish you had and that you know you could do great work for is a brilliant way to demonstrate an agency’s understanding of the client’s business, strategic thinking and creativity.
We all have ‘the ones that got away,’ brilliant ideas that end up in the top drawer for ‘another day’ – I can’t wait to see the possibilities of those more revolutionary and challenging ideas."
