Colenso BBDO CCO Levi Slavin to lead the AdFest 2018 Film + Radio Lotus as jury president

LEVI SLAVIN.jpgLevi Slavin, chief creative officer of Colenso BBDO in New Zealand, has been named jury president of the Film Lotus and Radio Lotus categories at AdFest 2018.

Slavin has won over 100 international awards across dozens of campaigns, including one Black and five Yellow Pencils at D&AD. His work has featured at TED, ranked #1 on the iTunes music and podcast charts, and has spanned product innovation, literature, television series, and film.
Salvin first joined Colenso in 2006, leaving in 2014 to take a global creative director role at Anomaly in New York. In 2015, he returned to the BBDO fold as VP, group creative director at BBDO New York. This year, he returned to Colenso BBDO as chief creative officer, based in Auckland.

"I can't wait to join the Film and Radio jury at AdFest next year. Having recently returned to New Zealand, it's the perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends and reacquaint myself with the best work being produced in Asia," said Slavin.

Says Jimmy Lam, President of AdFest: "Levi has consistently produced brilliant ideas for leading brands at agencies all over the world. To say we're excited to have him lead our Film and Radio Jury at AdFest 2018 is an understatement."

AdFest 2018 runs from 21-24 March 2018 at the PEACH Royal Cliff Hotels Group, Pattaya, Thailand. To enter the AdFest Lotus Awards, visit and click 'Awards'.
