Eurobest Announces 2015 Jurors

The European Festival of Creativity, eurobest, has today revealed the names of the 114 experts who will sit on juries to decide and award excellence in creative communications across Europe.

“eurobest has been setting Europe’s creative benchmark for 28 years,” says Philip Thomas, CEO, Lions Festivals. “This responsibility falls entirely with our juries, so ensuring that they are respected, forward-thinking creative leaders is paramount. We’re proud to be able to say that nearly 40% of our jurors are female this year – our highest to date. It’s reflective of the industry and shows that Europe is moving in the right direction to address the gender balance.”
