The Jury for the World Media Awards 2019 was brought together to reflect the breadth of skills required to create and coordinate winning international media campaigns. The Jury was co-chaired by a senior marketeer, agency head and media brand – reflecting the advantages of the effective partnerships which we saw in the entries. The day jobs of our judges include creating and editing the content for leading media brands, planning communication strategy for leading global brands, generating the ideas and creating the content for international advertising campaigns, and generating the buzz that shares the brand stories through PR and social media. And of course our Jury included clients – the people who pay the bills and need to see effective results.
The judging process for the World Media Awards had two phases – an online shortlisting process, followed by a meeting of our jury to select the winner in each category and choose their Content Leadership & Innovation and Grand Prix winner.
Hear from our Judges
``It’s a great recognition from the industry and from our peers of the value that we brought to Siemens. ‘It’s been a long, long programme and it’s great to see not only the fans and the people enjoy our programme, but also the industry. So, we are very happy with this.``
“It means the world, it means a lot, a great great joy. Especially after seeing what a prestigious jury it was this year. Really pleased, it’s a lot of effort, it’s a big big team work that came together.”
“Winning a World Media Award is particularly significant. What was crucial for us was to uncover those really unique stories. Travel and tourism can be quite saturated, so we had to dig deep to find stories that are as unique as our audience.”
“I don't think you need many more skills than being open minded and creative.``
The World Media Awards will be hosted at the Ham Yard Hotel in London.
In the midst of Soho and moments from Mayfair, Ham Yard Hotel has an urban village feel. The hotel revolves around a tree-filled garden with a bronze sculpture centrepiece by Tony Cragg. Interiors are designed by Kit Kemp in her award-winning modern British style.
