Rob Schwartz Among Those in Grand Effie Jury

Effie Worldwide has announced who’ll play judge and jury when it comes to determining the winner of its top prize, the Grand Effie, as part of the 2011 North American Effie Awards. The list includes not just agency folks like TBWA\Chiat\Day LA CCO Rob Schwartz (looking natural above), but marketing execs from the likes of Nike, Disney and PepsiCo. The Grand Effie will be presented at the end of the awards show, which takes place June 7 at Cipriani in New York (why this had to take place the same night as the AICPs we don’t know). Anyhow, here’s your full Grand Effie panel below and you can get further details about the event here.
