Creative Circle Announces 2017 Gold Judges



The UK’s oldest advertising awards body has revealed this year’s jury members

Creative Circle Announces 2017 Gold Judges

The Creative Circle, the longest running advertising awards body in the UK, has announced the names of this year’s Gold judges.

Consisting of some of the biggest and best names from the UK’s creative landscape, this year’s judging line up is split across six categories: Film, Film Craft, Digital, Direct & Experiential, Design & Craft, and Press, Outdoor & Radio. 

This year’s juries will be led by Ana Balarin (Mother), Katie Keith (Rattling Stick), Laura Jordan Bambach (Mr President), Nicky Bullard (MRM Meteorite), and Justin Tindall (M+C Saatchi). Judging week commences from 10th February, with the best of British creativity awarded at May’s award show.

It’s also been revealed that 10% of all award entry fees and 100% of membership fees will go to the Creative Circle Foundation, which will support greater diversity in the creative departments of the future.

Jeremy Green, CEO of The Creative Circle, comments: “For years now, everybody in advertising has been talking about the need to address our ongoing diversity issues, but there have been very few, if any, attempts to actively do something about it. It’s time for Britain’s advertising community to put their money where their mouth is and support the emerging youngsters from around the country who need our help.”

The Creative Circle Ball will be held at the Roundhouse on 17th May. Head over to the Creative Circle website to guarantee your ticket to the biggest social gathering in the UK’s creative calendar.
