2017 eurobest Juries Announced

50:50 gender split among jury members

25 October 2017 – eurobest, the festival of European creativity, has today revealed the names of the 95 experts who will sit on juries to decide and award excellence in creative communications across Europe.

Now in its thirtieth year, eurobest returns to London from 28 – 30 November with a three day Festival and Awards Ceremony. This year, attendees can hear directly from members of the juries who will take to the stage and share insights from the judging process along with previewing some of the winning work.

“The eurobest Awards are known to be the benchmark of Europe’s creativity and have been for 30 years.” says Jose Papa, Managing Director, Cannes Lions. “The industry is undergoing huge changes, which makes reliable benchmarks of creative achievement all the more important. eurobest juries are the best in the region, and I’m delighted to see that 50% are women. This is an important step in addressing gender imbalance in the European creative industries, and shows eurobest once more leading the way on this issue.”
