Co-founder Lucía Ongay said: “I could not be prouder of the winners chosen by the Gerety jury, in total there were just 60 entries which reached the required score to be awarded this year’s Gerety Awards. The highly acclaimed and respected Gerety Awards Jury and the winners they have chosen clearly sets the benchmark for the very highest standard of creativity.”

Gerety Jury member Angela Natividad, CCO and co-founder of, said: “There were plenty of woman-oriented ads, but that’s just the ad industry right now. What better focus group than Gerety to distinguish truly empowering works from femvertising? I also think some agencies believed that, because the jury is all women, work targeting women would stand a better chance. Not so. The winning brands from this year’s Gerety Awards draw from a range of industries and persuasions and are a testament to the discernment of a diverse and qualitative jury.”
