NYF’s Grand Jury determined the shortlist through two rounds of online judging. The Grand Jury is composed of 357 of the most respected and award-winning chief creative officers, executive creative directors, and industry professionals from around the globe. Shortlisted entries move on to the live Executive Jury. This year marks the third year the Executive Jury, an elite group of worldwide chief creative officers, will convene in New York City on April 27 - May 1, 2913, and through four rounds of judging they choose the World’s Best Advertising, selecting all levels of awards including the World’s Best Idea.
Kirk Cheyfitz, Global CEO of Story Worldwide, will moderate the 2013 Executive Jury and guide the proceedings of the largest gathering of worldwide chief creative officers ever to judge an advertising competition. Unlike other competitions, the NYFA Executive Jury does not elect a chairman or president — all members are of equal status.
The 2013 International Advertising Awards winning entries will be announced at the New York Show awards presentation on Thursday, May 2, 2013. The New York Show, a two-day series of creative events, will take place at the landmark New York Public Library's Beaux-Arts Building, located at 455 Fifth Avenue, at 42nd Street in New York City.
Festivities will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, May 1st and 2nd, and includes the Executive Jury Press Conference, keynote speakers, creative panel discussions, networking events, and exhibits of the shortlisted work. Thursday evening features the 2013 New York Show awards ceremony and after-party to honour the winners in true New York style.
