A hand-picked global jury, composed of jurors from each regional jury, will be deciding which projects may be awarded Immortal or Commendation status in the final round of judging.
Awards director Paul Monan comments: “What we are seeing in abundance across our regional juries is thoroughness and, at times, ruthlessness when settling on the projects that will receive Finalist status. I can only thank the jury for their dedication in celebrating the very best work from the region, landing on seven projects that they believe can compete against the greatest creative projects from around the globe. Congratulations to those who join our LATAM finalist in the final round - and good luck!”
