2017 is the 20th Anniversary of AdFest and it's going to be one not to miss. The theme for the four-day festival is '20 Years of Diversity' and Droga5 New York's chief creative officer Ted Royer has been named to head the jury.

Jimmy Lam, President of AdFest, says: "It's incredible to think that AdFest is celebrating its 20th anniversary next year. In 20 years, we have grown from a tiny festival on the hills of Chiang Mai into one of the best-loved industry events in Asia. The 2017 Lotus Awards will be a celebration of the world-class creativity that is now abundant in our region, and we can't wait to see which agencies are leading our industry into the future."
The theme of '20 Years of Diversity', reflects AdFest's passion and celebration of the region's richness and cultural diversity.  It is a testament to their commitment to creative excellence for the past 2 decades, and looks forward to the constantly changing landscape ahead in the future.

There are 18 categories to enter. The deadline for categories that are judged remotely is Friday 13th January 2017. These categories are: INNOVA Lotus, Integrated Lotus, Interactive Lotus, Mobile Lotus, Internet Film & Other Film (under Film Lotus), and Radio Lotus (including Lotus Roots in these Lotus categories).
