The Art Directors Club has announced its chairs and jurors for the 86th Annual Awards competition in advertising, interactive media and graphic design. The ADC Annual Awards, the longest running competition in the industry, closes its Call for Entries for professionals on January 26 and for students on January 31, 2007.
Tony Granger, Chief Creative Officer of Saatchi & Saatchi, New York will chair Advertising. Chair for Interactive is Rei Inamoto, Global Creative Director, AKQA. Co-chairs for Design are Rebecca Mendez, principal at Rebecca Mendez Design in Los Angeles, and Adam Eeuwens, creative director of 34 Magazine. A full list of jurors appears below. They represent the largest international group of professionals to judge the awards, hailing from Europe, Australia, Asia, and South America, as well as from around the U.S., and reflect the increasingly international profile of the creative community.
"We chose these creative 'rock stars' as jurists because they lead the industry, and our charge to them, as always, will be to choose winners whose work pushes the envelope," said ADC Executive Director Myrna Davis. "As the industry's most highly regarded non-profit creative organization, ADC continues to set the bar for visual communications across disciplines, media platforms and geographic boundaries."
