Insights Into Judging

What do award judges really look for?

At the recent Kancil Awards 2007, Janet Lee grabbed the chance to interview the foreign and local creative gurus. These video interviews provide a revealing insight into what they look for, how they think, why they chose what they chose, and where they see the Malaysian ad industry heading next year.

As the final part of the Kancil Awards Festival 2007, the 4As and 95% hosted this video presentation for all ad agency people on 19th December 2007.
Special guest star of the night was Edmund Choe, the Kancil Awards Jury Chairman and Creative Chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi. Here's Edmund and Janet.

The Best of Show was awarded to a campaign for Amnesty International created by Rudy La Faber.

• An ambient idea for Milo and 'Slurrrp' TVC by Natasha, Bronze winner at Kancil Awards 2007.
• And an interactive 'virtual mall' idea by Cheryl Low, a law graduate who is now aiming for a career as a brand planner.

Stuart : "I have to say that I was impressed with the standard of the thinking in general. What was of particular interest to me was the number of students from other institutions who were doing the 95% courses in addition to their other courses. I think this speaks volumes about the calibre and reputation of Janet and her outfit.”

Rahul : "I love the fact that you're not just doing interactive but RELEVANT interactive."

Jeff : "You've introduced the Brand Values into the target's life."

Here are the triumphant (and exhausted) participants : Natasha, Fiona, Alex, Cheryl, Silvia, Becky and Rudy.
