With the Immortal Awards' entry deadline of 10th September drawing ever closer, we are celebrating this year's creativity with a special Immortal Contenders edition of High Five. Some of this year's jurors reflect on their region over the past 12 months and select the best work that they believe stand a good chance of succeeding at the Immortal Awards.
The timely series will gain insight from the likes of Nice Shoes' Harv Glazer, VMLY&R Commerce's Manuel Borde, Grey's Francisca Maas, ABInBev/Draftline's Neo Segola, Cheil's Mariana Peluffo, Boys+Girls' Rory Hamilton, Dentsu's Tomoko Kanezaki, Leo Burnett's Chaka Sobhani, M&C Saatchi UAE's Ryan Reed and Howatson+White's Ant White.
“I'm so looking forward to learning which work this year's jury will choose for the High Five Awards Contenders series," commented Hannah Baines, head of High Five at LBB. "They have huge scope to choose from in a world that's (mostly) emerged from lockdown! Seeing a prolific number of incredible projects submitted has made me doubly excited to celebrate the best talent from around the globe. This year's awards is going to be a tough one for sure!"
The series will launch Monday 16th August and continue daily with a range of jurors for the next two weeks, concluding on Friday 27th August - a fortnight before the awards' entry deadline.
“With this year's Immortal Awards deadline rapidly approaching, it's a super exciting time to be looking back at which projects from all corners of the world stand a chance of succeeding this year. It's our biggest juror lineup ever and we'll be judging in some local markets as well as regionally and globally, meaning we'll be shining a spotlight on more incredible work than ever this year. We can't wait to see what our jurors think stand a chance - and remember, it's not too late to get your work in to this year's competition!” added Paul Monan, awards director.
