CANNES LIONS' DIRECT MARKETING JURY NAMED
17 march 2005 | 12:38
The Lions Direct jury members judging from Cannes, and those involved in the preliminary round, have been announced.
Due to the high volumes of direct marketing entries submitted each year and the considerable time it takes to judge each entry, a preliminary voting round is to take place at the end of May, where all Lions Direct entries will be viewed and judged prior to the Festival by an international panel of 51 judges from 25 countries.
Approximately the top 40 - 45 percent of the entries from the first round of voting will be judged in Cannes by a jury of 21 led by Austrian Fred Koblinger, Chief Executive Officer, BBDO Holding Austria and Managing Director, Palla Koblinger Proximity. The winners will be announced in Cannes on Tuesday 21 June.
"Since the launch of Lions Direct in 2002, this competition has become the most prestigious international direct marketing event which has been wholeheartedly embraced by the direct marketing industry, which is reflected by such a creative and talented jury," commented Terry Savage, CEO of the Festival.
