Adrian Botan, global executive creative director McCann Bucharest, Catalin Rusu, chief creative partner & CEO Rusu+Bortun, Dan Frinculescu, creative director at Publicis Romania and Valentin Suciu, chief creative partner at Jazz, are part of the jury at the 25th edition of the ADCE Awards .
ADCE Awards (The Best of European Design and Advertising) is the only international competition that reunites works awarded in the local competitions organized by the clubs members of the ADC Europe, from 20 countries.
A jury composed of 50 of some of the most creative people from the advertising agencies in Europe will select the best works that had already been awarded on a local field. The festival categories are: Film & Radio, Print & Outdoor, Interactive & Mobile, Design & Craft, Promotions & New Media and Integration & Innovation.
Botan will be the jury’s president at the category Integration & Innovation, Rusu will be a juror in the category Print & Outdoor, Frinculescu will be a member of the jury at the Integration & Innovation category, while Suciu will be a juror in the Film & Radio category.
“I am happy and honored to be part of the ADC Europe’s jury. I thank my ADC colleagues for the support. After 8 years of entrepreneurship, one looks differently at festivals, as you retrospect towards the parties after you become a father. They are not the number one priority anymore, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t fully enjoy them once they cross your way. Especially if then happen in Barcelona,” said Rusu.
“I am looking forward to be part of the ADCE Jury from different reasons: to see the best works that this continent has to offer, to meet all kinds of people and to stroll my favorite European city after the jury duty will be over,” confesses Frinculescu.
„There are many people in the jury that come from agencies that have told beautiful advertising stories during the years and I believe that the dialogues will be interesting. By the primary motive that lead me to wanting to be part of an international jury is the fact that I realize more clearly what is the level of the creativity in Europe and what makes the difference at this level. And, as an entrepreneur’s curiosity, that doesn’t have the luxury of supporting projects that don’t have behind a brief from a client or a real cause, to see if I can see from my juror place how many works have a real impact over the people and how many are especially created for the festival,” explained Suciu.
The festival will take place during October 14-15 in Barcelona. Following the partnership with ADC Romania, the winners of the FIBRA Awards will be able to enter for free in the competition. The submission period ends on September 16.
