Taproot Dentsu’s Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Santosh Padhi aka Paddy will represent India on the 2019 One Show jury. Paddy will judge the entries in Print and Outdoor categories.
Harshit Jain, Chief Growth Officer, McCann Worldgroup, who is currently based in London, is another Indian on the jury panel for the Health Wellness and Pharma categories.
Nearly 200 highly qualified creatives representing 26 countries will judge work from around the world.
“The quality of jurors has long been a hallmark of The One Show,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. “This year’s gender balanced juries consist of the industry’s top tier of creative thinkers and doers from around the world. They will judge work through the lens of creativity of ideas and quality execution, and use our robust judging platform featuring proprietary, state-of-the-art voting and scoring technology.”
The next deadline to submit entries is November 30, 2018 and the final deadline for entry is January 31, 2019.
For the first time this year, The One Show will accept submissions for the coveted Green Pencil, recognising excellence in environmentally-conscious advertising and design. In past years, the award was based on nominations.
This marks the second year The One Show will have a standalone discipline for Health, Wellness and Pharmaceutical, judged by a dedicated jury of healthcare advertising professionals for brands and agencies to recognise the best work in the field from around the world.
It’s also the second year for the One Show Mobile-First Video Advertising category, sponsored by Facebook. The category was established for video that is specifically created for use on mobile devices.
