Eurobest announces jury line-up for 2011

Eurobest has announced the names for three out of the eight juries; Interactive and Mobile, Media and Design.

The jury members will come together in Lisbon, the host city for this year’s Festival, to debate and deliberate over the best of European advertising and communications and award deserving entries with a much sought after Eurobest trophy. Each jury will be presided over by a dedicated president: Tom Eslinger, Digital Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide will chair the Interactive and Mobile Jury; Marco Rimini, Leader, Business Planning for Mindshare Worldwide will lead the Media Jury; and heading up the Design Jury is Tim Greenhalgh, Chief Creative Officer of FITCH.

Commenting on the juries, Philip Thomas, CEO of Cannes Lions, organisers of Eurobest, said, “At a time when the industry in Europe is having to hold its own against emerging regions and countries, it’s crucial that Eurobest stands as a testament to European creativity by awarding work that is genuinely deserving. These jury members have all proved themselves to be of award-winning calibre and will now use their knowledge and skills to decipher which entries stand out enough to walk away with a trophy. It is great to have them all on board.”
