Cannes Announces More Juries, while the ANDYs Embraces the Apocalypse

We’ll do a little killing two birds with one stone this morning by letting you know the latest news from a couple of the most notable industry award shows of the year. First off, Cannes continues filling up its various jury rosters, this time announcing those who’ll be judging in the Creative Effectiveness, PR, Design and Film categories. Among those serving as presidents include Havas/Euro RSCG Worldwide CEO David Jones for Creative Effectiveness , Ogilvy worldwide CCO Tham Khai Meng for Film and Turner Duckworth namesake/creative Bruce Duckworth for Design.

We’ll spare you the full lists (you can go to the Cannes Lions site for those) since we’d rather focus on the bombastic images promoting this year’s ANDYs. From the looks of it, the Mayans and their 2012 predictions have gotten to the show’s organizers, who presume we want to spend the end of days huddled with them in the Hudson Hotel. Let the awards season madness begin.
