The ADVERTISING Club of New York’s 2019 International ANDY Awards, the first advertising award show of the season, has announced its list of the top ten ads it predicts will sweep the 2019 awards season. Nike’s “Dream Crazy” (Wieden+Kennedy Portland and Park Pictures), John Lewis & Partners’ “The Boy and the Piano” (adam&eveDDB), and Libresse’s “Viva La Vulva” (AMVBBDO) were the top-ranking pieces of creative from the entire judging process.
“Kicking-off the award show season, The ANDYs is once again proud to provide predictions for the industry’s leading work,” said Gina Grillo, President and CEO of The ADVERTISING Club of New York and INTERNATIONAL ANDY Awards. “This year, we hosted our second ANDYs Facebook LIVE judging, providing the community the opportunity to tune into the candid conversations from our incredibly talented jury as they deliberated the best work of the year with the help of viewers who participated in providing feedback via Facebook’s comment and ‘like’ options.”
This year’s jury was led by Nick Law, Chief Creative Officer, Publicis Groupe, President Publicis Communications, and made up of 20 of the global advertising community’s most respected creative directors from organizations including: Deutsch North America, AKQA São Paulo, Facebook, Joan, McCann Spain, FCB Mexico, and Goodby Silverstein & Partners.
Coming off 2019’s LIVE deliberations, jurors shared thoughts around the power of the conversations within the jury room and the joy of celebrating praiseworthy work. Jury Chair, Law said,
“Winning an ANDY is not easy. Assembling a jury that can judge all the work our industry is capable of is also not easy. It is a rare jury that can judge a body of work that includes the most powerful stories, most engaging experiences, and most transformative innovations in the world.”
Another member of the jury, AJ Hassan, VP, Executive Creative Director, R/GA said,
“The joy of the ANDYs comes from a simple dedication to transparency and borderless ideas. As a judge, it sets a higher bar that encourages diverse thinking and debate around a shared passion. Work that transcends category excellence, in favor of uncompromising creativity.”
