Advertising, Awards, Festivals

Gerety 2021 is open for entries and announces its full jury that includes more than 180 advertising and marketing leaders from 30 different countries.

The Gerety Awards are redefining advertising and communications by setting a new benchmark in global creative awards. The 2021 Gerety Awards winners will once again define the standard to which advertising should be held and show clients the best way to target the world’s most powerful consumers.

This year’s executive jury sessions will be held in London, Toronto, Berlin, Santiago, Lagos, Singapore, Milan, Paris, Los Angeles and Budapest. As well as defining the overall shortlist these juries will choose agency and production company of the year from their country.

Gerety Co-founder Lucía Ongay says

“In this third year, we welcome new juries from new cities for our jury sessions, for a truly global perspective from the female vision of the best in creative advertising and communications from around the world”

The Grand Jury includes the likes of Karen Blackett OBE, WPP U.K Country Manager & GroupM U.K CEO, Jessica Apellaniz, CCO of Mexico & Latam, Ogilvy Mexico and Tara Weeransinghe, Group Head-Creative, Leo Burnett Sri Lanka. 

Named for Frances Gerety, the copywriter who in 1948 coined the slogan “A diamond is forever”, The Gerety Awards marks the first time that a jury has been brought together to select the best in advertising — all advertising, not just advertising made for women — through the female lens, creating a benchmark that is relevant to the market reality, all while redefining the standard to which advertising has traditionally been held.
