New York Festivals 2009 International Advertising Awards has officially opened its call for entries. The award show which is in its 51st year, recognizes work in disciplines such as television, cinema, print, outdoor, interactive, design, mixed media, collateral, radio and student advertising.
Michael O'Rourke (pictured), president, NYF, said, "Our role as an awards company is to not only award great work, but to ensure our winners are truly recognized on an international level. Whether it's a screening in Sao Paulo or a seminar in Seoul, people will get a chance to view and appreciate our winners' creative efforts."
The organizers say the show received entries from 71 countries last year. Last year, jury members from India included Santosh Padhi, Meeta Sharath Chandra and Chayo Brian Carvalho among others.
