Hugh Fitzhardinge commented on the upcoming judging sessions at Sydney-based Ward6, “At Ward6 we’re delighted to host the 2015 Global Awards live session in what’s now a long-standing tradition ‘down under’. I like to think Australia punches above its weight in healthcare advertising and it’ll be great to have creatives from both global networks and local independents in attendance. In a rapidly changing environment, I’ll be hoping to discover some of those elusive game changing ‘new’ ideas that we all wish we’d come up with.”
Shaheed Peera, host of the London based Grand Jury judging session slated for September 23rd at Publicis LifeBrands Resolute said, “It was an honour to be asked to host this year’s UK judging session. The Globals have a wonderful history of celebrating great creative. And I'm really excited to see what will rise to the top this year.”
“CAHG is thrilled to host the Midwest judging of the Global Awards, said Robin Shapiro. “ We have assembled a stellar jury representing some of the best healthcare agencies. Working with these bright creative leaders to discuss, debate, and ultimately help determine the year's best healthcare communication — I can’t imagine a better day!”
