The jurors’ mission was to identify excellence and burgeoning talent amidst the myriad of entries submitted, which would serve as new benchmarks in their respective industries.
Grand Jury Panel Applications were received from as many as 38 countries, but ultimately, only 110 jurors were selected. These esteemed individuals are professionals belonging to renowned companies, representing the industry’s best of the best, such as Founder and Creative Director of RCBD – Ralph Christian Bremenkamp, CEO of Paolo Cappello Design Studio – Paolo Cappello, Design Manager at Lavazza – Florian Seidl, Creative Director of Kre8ive Partners – Mark Turner, 3D Senior Global Packaging Designer at Tom Ford Beauty – Jiaru Lin, Founder of CHAMPARTE – Catherine Yu, Director at DesignAware – Takbir Fatima, Founder / CCO of Cutwater – Chuck McBride, Founder / CEO of Genome – Matthew Fitz-Henry, Chief Creative Officer at White Rabbit Budapest – Levente Kovacs, Founder of AdvAge Advertising & NFT Cube Agency – Maria Afroditi Patsi, Managing Partner at Coley Porter Bell – Jenn Szekely, Marketing Manager & Account Executive at M&A Creative Agency – Carla Neves, and etc.
Each entry was judged using category-relevant industry standards. Blind judging was also employed to enforce impartiality.
