The 2012 Executive Jury convened in New York City on 28 April to 1 May 2012 to select the World's Best Advertising. The Executive Jury evaluated every shortlisted entry selected by the online Grand Jury, comprising 400+ international executive creative directors, making it one of the most diverse juries of any advertising competition in the world. The shortlist was generated from the first two rounds of judging; ensuring each entry achieving shortlist status was given the hands-on attention it deserved.
