CLIO Image announces jury; entries now open to creatives in fashion, beauty, retail + accessories

drama_panel1.jpgThe CLIO Awards, esteemed international advertising, design and communications competition, today announces jury members for its global awards program, CLIO Image, in partnership with WWD.

Honoring creative excellence in fashion, beauty, retail and accessories, the first deadline for submissions is January 30. The annual event will take place on Tuesday, May 5 in New York City.

The CLIO Image award recognises work that pushes creative boundaries and demonstrates an innovation and evolution for the industry. Grand CLIO Image awards are presented to truly exceptional projects - 2014 winners included Wren's viral "First Kiss" short form film. An Honorary CLIO Image award is presented to someone for a distinguished body of work and creative contributions made to their industry. Last year, Sarah Jessica Parker received the inaugural Honorary CLIO Image award. Finally, the Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates an outstanding career and an individual who has paved the way for new industry talent.

Says Nicole Purcell, executive vice president CLIO Awards: "Launching CLIO Image last year, we recognized the need to salute creatives across the globe working behind-the-scenes in the fashion, beauty, retail and accessories industries.

"With our expert jury pool at the ready, we are already seeing amazing entries and know how strong this year's batch of award winners will be; we're excited for May."
