Jury President Pablo del Campo, Worldwide Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi, Argentina said that the jury had seen many entries which had "brought light" to the category, but the Grand Prix stood out for its freshness, originality and, ultimately, creative bravery. "There were other great ideas that we loved, but we thought that this one was the most challenging and farthest away from the comfort zone."
