In 2010, except for the PR jury, Romania is also in the TV/Cinema, Print, Outdoor & Radio jury, having three proposals for the juror: Adrian Botan -McCann, Liviu David – Next si Mihai Gongu – Graffiti BBDO.
It is a big satisfaction to gather together, on the same piece of paper, three names with resonance. In our 1st year of competition for Young Lions, we had among jurors Adrian Botan (McCann) and Liviu David (Next), at that time online, from Australia. In the 1st team of Romanians that were entering the arena of a competition as Cannes, post local selection, and Mihai Gongu. At almost 6 years difference, Mihai is the owner of an impressive portfolio of prizes and interesting projects, that recommended him for the Creative Director position at Graffiti / BBDO. It is nice the way two generations – Botan, David on one hand, and Gongu on the other hand – are crossing their ways in situations related to the international environment

Botan, David and Gongu are names that inspire, are generating enthusiasm and are building projects to remember, that make the industry accelerate the rhythm to keep up with the peace.
The Romanian juror, after he will be revealed, will be in the same jury with important names of European creativity at Eurobest, that will take place in Hamburg, in december.
Last year, Romania’s delegation included over 20 participants, from which almost half – students of The Alternative School for Creative Thinking.
