Annual 2018 judging panel announced!

Published by

Top level creatives and marketers from agencies and brands around the world make up the judging panel for the Creativepool Annual 2018 - a celebration of the heroes behind the industry’s creative output.

The judging panel, made up of 185 experts, will shine a light onto campaigns and teams that chose creativity, fresh thinking, groundbreaking initiatives, incredible film, print, and innovation in 2017.

This year’s Annual 2018 is a striking pastiche of Trainspotting, transforming the ‘Choose Life’ monologue into a reflection of the current state of the creative and advertising industries. The launch campaign asks the industry to ‘Choose creativity’ in the face of the mundane processes of everyday work life.

Michael Tomes, Founder, Creativepool comments: “Every year we put creativity at the forefront with our unique award.  Our ‘Trainspotting’ theme asks the industry to ‘Choose Creativity’ above the jargon, data, and number-crunching that the world of creativity sometimes holds aloft.. Spanning 18 countries and four continents, this year’s judging panel is a collective rich in diversity and expertise. We can’t wait to see who our judges will choose as their winners this year. ”

The judging panel of the Annual 2018 include:
