Fifty-six of the advertising industry’s most acclaimed professionals from around the world have been selected to judge the 37th annual One Show, One Show Design and One Show Interactive Awards. Produced by The One Club, the renowned international creative awards competitions will be held during Creative Week May 7-13, 2012, in New York City.
The One Show awards honour the year's best advertising, design and interactive work from across the globe. Being selected as a One Show judge is a career-defining honour, as is winning the coveted One Show Gold, Silver and Bronze Pencils, considered the ultimate achievement in the advertising industry.
“The prestige of One Show is tied directly to the calibre of our jury, and this year’s panel is definitely at the top of their game,” said Kevin Swanepoel, President at The One Club. “We’re thrilled to have such an esteemed and internationally diverse group of creative leaders serve as jurors to determine the best in advertising, design and interactive media.”
The One Show jury will be chaired by Kevin Roddy of Publicis & Hal Riney, San Francisco. Anupama Ramaswamy of JWT India, who has been selected for this jury, is the only Indian on the jury panels of One Show this year.
The One Show Interactive jury will be chaired by Benjamin Palmer of The Barbarian Group, New York.
Judges for the 4th annual One Show Entertainment, held each June in Los Angeles, will be announced next month.
