McGinness to Serve as ADC Interactive Jury Chair

The Art Directors Club continues its promotional tour-de-force for its 90th annual awards show by announcing that Will McGinness (who bears a striking resemblance to my old pal, Nick Parish) will serve as jury chair for the Interactive portion of the event. You may remember McGinness from such agencies as Goodby (seven years spent) and Arnold (where he worked on the VW account), but now the creative is a CD at SF-based Venables Bell & Partners, which he joined in September of last year. McGinness will spearhead a jury that includes the likes of Arnold Boston CCO Pete Favat and Goodby CDO Mike Geiger. Read full jury list after the jump and as a reminder, the submission deadline for the Interactive category is Jan. 28.
