The big list of judges was announced last month and The CAANZ Media Awards Committee has announced the 18 media agency representatives who, with a group of 12 representatives from clients, media owners and creative agencies, will engage in some robust debate and determine the 2012 finalists during this week’s category judging.
CAANZ has rung plenty of changes to the awards programme this year. And, for the first time, it asked industry big brains to apply or be nominated for their positions on the judging panel in an effort to add a bit of gravitas. And after 96 applications and 20 nominations were received, the CAANZ Media Awards Committee has announced 89 successful candidates for the preliminary round of judging.
For the first time, CAANZ is publicly calling for top media minds to help decide the illustrious 2012 Media Awards winners. Those keen on judging the awards can apply now, or nominate someone else they think perfect for a judging role. Rather than casting aspersions on any previous judges, this new process adds a touch more gravitas to the proceedings, and should ensure only the most knowledgeable and experienced people are representing the industry – leading to greater consistency across categories.
