Valerie Madon and Garima Khandelwal among Asian jurors at Gerety Awards

For its second edition, the Gerety Awards which aims to spotlight talent and support initiatives that champion diversity in the creative industries has announced the first names in its global jury. 

Prominent jurors from the region include recently appointed VMLY&R CCO Valerie Madon, Mullen Lintas India CCO Garima Khandelwal and Octagon Asia-Pacific regional creative director Lizi Hamer.

The announcement: 

After launching this January the Gerety Awards today announces the first of its global jury for next year.

Building on the momentum from its first year where the Gerety Awards exploded onto the award circuit with a mission to redefine what is traditionally perceived as ‘normal’ for the advertising industry. The Gerety winners chosen in its first year redefined the standard to which advertising is held

In its inaugural year there were more than 150 senior agency creatives and brand leaders from 30 different countries on the Jury. The Gerety 2020 Jury will replicate that with a new trail blazing jury from around the world.

The Gerety founders said: 

“The first of the Jury we are announcing today sets the stage for Gerety 2020. Next year’s jury of highly respected agency and brand leaders from around the world will once again reinforce our mission. It was great to see the industry and in particular clients take notice of the Gerety Award winners and the 2020 jury will reflect that with their increased presence on the jury alongside some of the world’s most respected agency creatives. We are excited to see what our jury will choose as the best in advertising next year.”

Named for Frances Gerety, the copywriter who coined the slogan “A diamond is forever,” the Gerety Awards recognizes global talent, mentors and allies within advertising—the people who will define and refine the standard to which advertising should be held.
