TheÂ Grand Jury, comprising 429 of the world's most respected and award-winning chief creative officers, executive creative directors and industry professionals, selected the shortlists through two rounds of online judging.Â The shortlistedÂ entries were submitted from 70 countries, and will move on to the liveÂ Executive JuryÂ who will then determine all levels of awards: Finalist Certificate, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Grand Trophy, andÂ â€˜Worldâ€™s Best Ideaâ€™.Â The Executive Jury, an elite group of worldwide creative officers, will convene in New York City April 28 through May 1Â to select the Worldâ€™s Best Advertising through five rounds of judging.
The Executive Jury will be moderated for the second year in a row by Donald Gunn, Founder of the renownedÂ Gunn Report, and will be joined by Michael Conrad, President of theÂ Berlin School of Creative Leadership. UnlikeÂ other competitions, the NYFA Executive Jury does not elect a chairman or president â€” all members are of equal status. Gunn and Conrad, both experienced moderators, will guide the proceedings, which promises to be the world's largest gathering of worldwide chief creative officers ever to judge an advertising competition.
TheÂ New York Show is a two-day festival that begins on May 2, 2012, and features creative panel discussions, keynote speakers, networking events, and the 2012 Executive Jury Press Conference. The show will culminate with the annual International Advertising Awards ceremony on May 3. All New York Show events and the 2012 Awards gala will take place at the New York Public LibraryÂ Stephen A Schwarzman Building located on 5th Avenue and 42nd Street.
