White Square International Advertising Festival announces 2020 shortlists

The White Square International Advertising Festival has announced its shortlists for 2020.

White Square’s six main international jury line-ups had completed judging sessions on 24-26 June. Jury meetings were held in the format of live conferences. In total, 937 entries from 31 countries of the world were submitted to all festival contests this year. Ahead are the meetings of two more jury teams – Mass Media jury, and grand jury which will award the Grand Prix of the festival.

Prize winners of White Square 2020 will be announced at Awards Ceremony, which will take place on 9 July in the format of an offline open-air party. Online broadcasting of the event will be held in all countries participating in the festival.

Alena Ustinovich, chairman of the board of Association of Communications and Marketing Agencies of Belarus and producer of the White Square festival, noted:
The experience of online judging is new for us, it was not easy, but everything worked out. I would like to express my gratitude to all jury members for how carefully and reverently they evaluated submitted works. The judging was strict as always but constructive. I am pleased with the rather impressive list of shortlists this year. I think the jury found it right to support the participants, give them inspiration and positivity. In such difficult times, we especially need some celebration, and I am happy that there is White Square that can give it to the industry.
At the moment, shortlists in all seven contest categories of the festival have been announced:
