AOI Pro. has announced that Rajay Singh, co-founder and film director at its group company in Malaysia, Directors Think Tank, has been selected as a Film Craft Grand Jury member for the 2019 New York Festivals Advertising Awards.
The New York Festivals is an international organisation founded in 1957, which celebrates high achievement in advertising, TV programmes, feature films and radio programs. Entries into the 2019 New York Festivals Advertising Awards competition will be judged by 400+ members of Executive Juries and Grand Juries who collectively cast over 400,000 votes to select the winners. The Grand Juries are selected by recommendation from the judges of previous years and industry creative leaders and also chosen from amongst last year’s award-winners.
Rajay has been responsible for breaking Directors Think Tank Group into Asia’s Top 10 production companies. To spearhead growth in Asia, he successfully negotiated capital participation by the largest production group in Japan, AOI Pro. — the first in Malaysia to attempt such a feat.
Director’s Think Tank was ranked amongst the TOP 10 production houses across Asia for Campaign Brief’s The Work, and was recently awarded Production House of the Year at the Kancil Awards.
Rajay has worked on commercials that have won accolades across the globe, with wins at Cannes, One Show, AD STARS, Spikes, and ADFEST. He judged at ADFEST, Spikes, AD STARS, Kancil Awards and the Ciclope Festival. He has also worked on many high profile campaigns for Petronas F1, Glenlivet, Malaysia Airlines, Sony, Guinness, Google, and Mitsubishi.
