AdFest jury now to meet in Tokyo

AF10.jpgThe long delayed judging of the 2010 AdFest Lotus Awards will take place from 24-28th May in Tokyo, Japan. AdFest considered several different cities across the Asia Pacific, but ultimately Tokyo proved to be the most suitable choice for the relocation of this year's Jury session, which includes more than 50 judges.

 "The AdFest Organizing Committee has worked tirelessly to ensure our Jury Panel will come together in Asia in less than two week's time to assess the region's best advertising ideas of 2010. AdFest prides itself on being the region's 1st major awards festival every year. The agencies that win at AdFest usually go on to shine globally, and this year will be no different - regardless of the fact that our Jury Panel will meet in Japan this year, rather than Thailand," says AdFest President Jimmy Lam.
AdFest made the difficult decision to cancel this year's three-day festival in light of the uncertain political climate in Thailand. All winners and finalists will be announced and showcased via www.adfest.com in the week commencing Monday 31 May. Interviews and videos with the 2010 Jury members will also be published on AdFestbuzz.

"We would like to thank our friends across the region for their unwavering support, understanding and patience. Despite the postponement of this year's 3-day festival, AdFest will return in 2011, and we are more committed than ever to fostering creativity in the Asia Pacific," says Vinit Suraphongchai, Chairman of the AdFest Working Committee.

The 2010 AdFest Lotus Awards will include the following categories: Film, Press, Poster, Outdoor, Direct, Cyber, Radio, Design, Print Craft, Film Craft and New Director, as well as INNOVA, 360 and Lotus Roots awards.
