Says Lord Davies: “What appealed to me most about judging these prestigious awards is the financial rigour that these campaigns must demonstrate. It is not enough to be creative; they must also prove the value of this creativity on the bottom line. Ultimately as Chairman of Judges I’m looking to be wowed by the transformational power of advertising from across the world in terms of the impact it has on business fortunes.”

Says Lindsey Clay, Chief Executive, Thinkbox, the overall Awards’ sponsor: “Thinkbox is proud to be associated with the IPA Effectiveness Awards for another year. We share the IPA’s dedication to proving and celebrating the very best in advertising effectiveness.”
