    Eurobest Festival announces jury presidents

Eurobest, the European Festival of Creativity, has announced the 10 jury presidents who will meet in Helsinki this December to award the greatest creative communications in Europe.

“This year’s jury presidents are a dynamic mix of hugely talented individuals. They will set precedents in creative communications across the region and we’re delighted to have them working with us as we embark on a journey of discovery to find new talent, breakthrough ideas and ground-breaking creativity,” says Philip Thomas, CEO, Lions Festivals.

Commenting on what they hope to discover at Eurobest this year, the jury presidents have been announced as follows:

Rob Reilly, Global Creative Chairman, McCann Worldgroup, Global
“Being from the States, you tend to focus mostly on what is going on in your own backyard. I am excited to see all the nuances of culture and creativity from each country in the region.”
Film, Print and Print & Poster Craft Jury President | Integrated Jury President

Anna Qvennerstedt, Creative Senior Partner, Chairman of the Board, Forsman & Bodenfors, Sweden
”I hope to have some preconceptions altered, some opinions changed, make some new friends and have some really good laughs.”
Digital and Mobile Jury President

Ami Dror, Managing Partner, Zaitoun Ventures, Israel 
“To me Eurobest seems to be about taking an exciting journey of discovery. As president, I can’t wait to discover Europe’s latest innovations, start-ups, rising stars and ground-breaking technologies.”

Direct and Promo & Activation Jury President

Bruno Stucchi, Owner/Strategic and Design Director, Dinamomilano, Italy

“Helsinki’s Eurobest will allow me to help assess the best of European storytelling through content and that can’t have come at a better time. We’ve loved The Killing, The Bridge, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Borgen in recent years and I am expecting this invigorated interest in Nordic scriptwriting to come through loud and clear in this year’s Branded Content category.”
Branded Content & Entertainment Jury President

Kelly Walsh, Chief Strategy Officer, MSL Group

“A monster year has kept me on my toes and hungry for what’s coming next. Eurobest is the perfect place for me to feed this energy and I can’t wait to discover and focus on European creativity.”

“Award shows are the soup-kitchens for ad-folk in need of inspiration – where we can feed our minds on the thoughts and ideas of others.”

I’m looking forward to seeing great ideas and excellent craft in the outdoor and radio categories and having great discussions with the best in the business.”
