Why I am judging the awards... "Advertising is becoming more vibrant and dynamic with new and innovative formats emerging across all channels but digital is certainly the leader. Creativity that drives engagement and measurable outcomes is the magic combination that marketers, their ad agencies and media partners search for. Being a part of the Digital Advertising Awards means I get a first look at the best work being done in our industry, and I'm thrilled to be involved."
