D&AD 2017: Josy Paul named Outdoor jury foreman
D&AD has revealed jury heads for the 55th edition of its Professional Awards. The D&AD Awards will be hosted as part of a festival from 25 to 27 April 2017.
 
Representing India on the list is Josy Paul, chairman, BBDO India, as head of the Outdoor Advertising jury.
 
Tim Lindsay, CEO, D&AD, said, “D&AD evolves and changes to reflect the landscape of commercial creativity, which is why every year you’ll find us listening to feedback and making changes to our categories. 2017 will be the year of awarding the established and the very new. Innovation is at the heart of every great creative idea, it is how we measure creative excellence every year. With this in mind, awarding work that has nailed that initial concept but hasn’t necessarily gone into full production was a natural next move for us. At the same time, it isn’t all about the new, there is much to be learned from rewarding successful creative relationships and ideas that have survived the test of time; which is why we will be looking at both ends of the spectrum this year. As ever we wait with growing excitement to see what great creative work is entered in the next weeks and months.”
 
Donal Keenan, awards director, added, “At D&AD we strongly believe in championing equality in the creative industry and aim to lead by example. This year we are pleased to announce that our line-up of jury foremen and women are equally split by gender for the first time, a trend that we will work to ensure continues into the future.”
