Adrian Botan, juror at 2012 One Show

Creativity, Festivals & Awards

Adrian Botan from McCann Erickson Romania is one of the 56 advertising industry’s most acclaimed professionals from around the world that were selected to judge the 37th annual One Show, One Show Design and One Show Interactive Awards. Produced by The One Club, the awards will be held during Creative Week (May 7-13), in New York City.

The One Show awards honor the year’s best advertising, design and interactive work from across the globe. Being selected as a One Show judge is a career-defining honor, as is winning the coveted One Show Gold, Silver and Bronze Pencils, considered the ultimate achievement in the advertising industry.


The prestige of One Show is tied directly to the caliber of our jury, and this year’s panel is definitely at the top of their game (…) We’re thrilled to have such an esteemed and internationally diverse group of creative leaders serve as jurors to determine the best in advertising, design and interactive media.
