Jamie Claudio of D S Simon Productions spoke to Donald Gunn, Founder of the Gunn Report, at the 2011 New York Festivals World’s Best Advertising Awards on May 5, 2011 where he shared his experience moderating the first ever 32 member executive jury panel.
Some of Donald’s VlogViews:
“I must admit that when I was asked to do this and when I was coming over on the plane I was a little bit terrified because this is a uniquely strong jury with 32 absolutely top guys from top agencies all over the world.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a great honor to be moderating such great people and also to be working with Jimmy Smith who showed great vision and courage in accepting, as the process went on this year, that these guys were raising the bar for the future and making this from quite an easy show to win at to one of the world’s toughest.”
“It has been normal to give one award each year in each category. This year the jury felt that rather than do that they just wanted to have one absolutely top award and the winner, Nike for Write the Future, was by far the best.”
