D&AD 2018: Anita Nayyar of Havas is jury president for media
The organisers of the D&AD Awards have announced jury presidents for next year's awards. Entries for the awards have been opened which will be held on 26 April 2018.
 
Anita Nayyar, CEO, India and South East Asia, Havas Media, has been appointed as the jury president for the media category.
 
The organisers have also announced two new categories - 'Collaborative' and 'Experiential'. 
 
Tim Lindsay, CEO, D&AD, said, “In a media environment that encourages the short-term and tactical it's never been more important to stand up for craft and creativity. Why? Because the good creates better outcomes than the bad - commercially, socially, sustainably, culturally and politically. D&AD's role in this is stimulation, not congratulation. There's too much backslapping when what is needed is a focus on and enablement of creative excellence in advertising and design. We are engaged in a war against mediocrity and you are an important ally. Get involved!”
 
Donal Keenan, D&AD Awards Director, added, “For the second year running we’re proud to achieve a 50/50 gender split across our global jury presidents. This year we have actually surpassed that with over 50 per cent of our jury presidents' identifying as female. At D&AD, we strive to ensure we have a true gender-balanced representation across every category and judging panel, it's important to achieve a true diversity of voices in the room to identify the best creative work of the year.”  
 
The D&AD Festival will be held between 24-26 April 2018 in London. 
 
For the awards, entries must have been commercially released between 1 January 2017 and 18 March 2018.
