NEW YORK, NY: The New York Festivals International Advertising Awards has announced its call for entries for the 2013 competition honouring the "World's Best Advertising". Based on feedback from the 2012 executive jury, NYF restructured the International Advertising Awards competitions and categories to reflect the current work being produced globally.
The International Advertising Awards competition receives entries from 70 countries and recognises work in all media in the following competitions: Avant-Garde, Branded Entertainment, Creative Marketing Effectiveness, Design, Digital, Direct & Collateral, Film, Integrated, Outdoor, Print, Public & Media Relations, Public Service, Radio and Student.
In 2012, for the second year in a row, New York Festivals assembled an elite group of worldwide chief creative officers from the world's most prominent ad agencies to participate on the live executive jury, moderated by Donald Gunn, the founder of the The Gunn Report, and Michael Conrad, president of the Berlin School of Creative Leadership. These high level creative officers gathered in one room to judge the final rounds of the NYF International Advertising Awards. shortlisting process
