The Creative Circle Announces 2016 Gold Judges



UK’s oldest advertising awards body reveals this year’s jury members

The Creative Circle Announces 2016 Gold Judges
The Creative Circle, the longest running advertising awards body in the UK, has announced the names of this year’s Gold judges.

Packed full of the most talented individuals that the UK industry has to offer, this year’s judging line up is split across six categories: Film, Film Craft, Digital, Direct, Design, and Press, Outdoor and Radio. Judging week commences from 7th March, with the best of British creativity awarded at April’s awards show.

This year has seen an unprecedented demand to be involved in the judging, with over 270 creatives registering online to become a part of the fairest judging process in the UK. Over 40 agencies and film companies are represented in the final judging lists, with 273 industry figures making the cut. To see the full list of 2016 judges, please visit the Creative Circle website.
Jeremy Green, CEO of Creative Circle, comments: “The response from the UK’s creative community this year has been phenomenal. The number of people who registered their interest online was quite exceptional. The demand has been huge, dwarfing the number of online applicants we’ve received in previous years. It’s clear that people want to get involved – the UK community wants to work collectively to champion the very best of British creativity.”

The Creative Circle Ball will be held at the Roundhouse on 28th April. The awards night has sold out in advance for the last three years and tickets for this year’s event have been selling faster than ever, with those who missed out on last year’s event being the first to book this time round.

Head over to the Creative Circle website to guarantee your ticket to the biggest social gathering in the UK’s creative calendar.
