Dubai Lynx announces 2013 Jury Line up

dubai_lynx_logoDubai :The Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity has announced the 40 jury members who will judge entries into the 7th Dubai Lynx Awards.

“This is a fantastic global line-up of industry specialists. It’s an exciting time for the awards with a programme that’s grown to introduce the new Branded Content & Entertainment category and the Independent Agency of the Year accolade, which in turn offers a true reflection of the development in the region’s creative output. It will be fascinating to see which are the stand-out entries for the 2013 juries,” says Philip Thomas, CEO of Lions Festivals.

Judging will take place during the Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity, held at the Madinat Jumeirah from 10-12 March. Cultural attachés will be on hand to assist the jury with questions relating to cultural nuances of the work being judged. The juries’ chosen winners will be revealed during the much anticipated Awards Ceremony and Dinner on 13 March. Entries into the 15 awards categories are now being accepted until 14 February 2013.
