CLIO president Nicole Purcell and CLIO executive director of marketing Brooke Levy will present the creatives behind the winning spot with a custom Super CLIO statue in-person on Tuesday, February 3. Society Awards designed the statue towering above a standard CLIO at 22 inches, matching the height and look of the big game trophy.

Says Purcell: "We've seen more people tuning in for the ads than the game itself - it's become the prime showcase for the most innovative and inventive creative of the year. At CLIO, we wanted to capitalize on our knowledge base and a network of experts to recognize the work around this moment. It's a fun competition, but one that acknowledges an agency with a true pulse on the industry."

The top creative minds in the country have come together to award the inaugural Super CLIO. Experts in their field with an eye for what makes a great ad, the 2015 jurors include, Ted Royer, chief creative officer, Droga5; Gerry Graf, founder and chief creative officer, bfg9000; Glenn Cole, founder and chief creative officer, 72andSunny; Colleen DeCourcy, global executive creative director, Wieden+Kennedy; David Lubars, chief creative officer, BBDO Worldwide and chairman, BBDO North America; Susan Credle, chief creative officer, Leo Burnett USA; Steve Simpson, chief creative officer, Ogilvy & Mather North America; Rob Schwartz, CEO, TBWA/Chiat/Day New York and Tim Nudd, creative editor, Adweek.

Says Reilly: "This is our biggest stage, where brands and agencies take the biggest risks. It is time to reward the bravest ones with a piece of hardware that is equal to the most famous trophy in sports."
