BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | May 11, 2016
Rob Reilly, Global Creative Chairman of McCann Worldgroup, has been named the Jury President for Branded Entertainment at the 2016 London International Awards (LIA). Josy Paul, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of BBDO India, is also on the jury.
Branded Entertainment encompasses any piece of content that is made with a brand’s personality, positioning and marketing objectives in mind. Its primary intention is delivering an enjoyable and engaging experience to consumers.
On judging Branded Entertainment at LIA, Reilly commented, "I always like being part of categories that are ever changing and nothing is evolving as quickly as branded entertainment. Plus it doesn't hurt that the judging takes place in the city that feels like one big, crazy, fun and freaky branded space as Las Vegas."
Reilly’s work has been recognized at every awards festival imaginable. He is a member of The One Club Board, the Facebook Creative Council and The White House Entrepreneurship Task Force, as well as a chairman for the Ad Council Campaign Review Committee. During the LIA 2014 judging, Rob chaired The NEW Jury and spoke at Creative LIAisons, back when it was known as Creative Conversations.
