Creativepool Annual 2020 - The Most Judging Panel Announced

Published by

We’ve roped in an enviable roll call of top tier creatives and marketers to cast their considered critical eyes over the work that lit up Creativepool in 2019.

Pulled from every corner of the industry, with representatives from some of the world’s most respected agencies and influential brands, our 246-strong panel of experts are celebrating the bold and innovative heroes behind the campaigns and teams that let their creativity shine this year for the Creativepol Annual 2020.

The Creativepool Annual remains the “most” award in the creative industries

Six judges in each panel will put their heads together to seek out and spotlight the freshest and most groundbreaking work in film, print and innovation from 2019. There’s a lot of genius to get through this year, so they certainly have their work cut out for them.

This year, we’re also celebrating how Creativepool Annual remains the “most” award in the creative industries: The most influential, most distributed, the most voted for, most shared and most collaborative award in the game.

It’s also the most carbon-positive award of the year, with 10% of all profits made by the Annual split evenly across 3 charities that are working to offset the devastating effects of climate change across the world. Our goal this year is to offset 5 times as much carbon as we’ve created in the Annual’s production, making the Creativepool Annual 2020 a truly carbon-positive endeavour.

Our panel this year is a collective rich in diversity and expertise

Michael Tomes, Founder, Creativepool comments: “Every year we put creativity at the forefront with our unique award but this year, we’re also reflecting on our industry’s responsibility as a pillar of influence. That’s why all paper being used in the Annual this year is from recycled sources, where possible, and it’s why we’re working so hard to offset the environmental impact of our event at every conceivable level.

Above all else, however, this is still an event that’s all about celebrating creative excellence. I am so happy, proud and humbled to announce this year's jury members. The most global, influential and experienced group of fantastic people we have ever assembled!"

The Creativepool Annual 2020 welcomes submissions from individuals, agencies, and brands across 31 different categories. Winners are showcased in the printed publication of the Annual 2020 and across the global creative and brand network.

Challenging the notion of traditional awards, the Creativepool Annual also hosts a People’s Choice vote where the entire community gets a chance to name their winner. These awards are all about the creative community, so it’s fitting that the community has its voice heard loud and clear.

Submission deadline: 18th March
