Barbarian Group CEO Benjamin Palmer on Awards Season

Alas, our time with Barbarian Group CEO Benjamin Palmer has come to an end. Here’s the third and final installment of our Media Beat interview with the exec, who this time discusses judging award shows and how there will probably be “no surprises” this year. Why? Because as Palmer says, and we’re sure at least some of you will agree, “The stuff that ends up actually being famous and effective ends up winning the big awards.”

TBG’s chief exec also talks about the importance of something like the Art Directors Club, which he happens to be a board member of. Anyhow, why spoil the rest? Check it out for yourself. Links to previous parts below.
