Lavoie, Best to Head Up Select ADC Juries

Are you geared up for awards season yet? Well, whatever the case, the Art Directors Club has solidified its its 90th Awards juries with the additions of Taxi chairman/co-founder Paul Lavoie (pictured) and Wayne Best as Advertising and Hybrid chairs, respectively.

Best, if you best remember, left his ECD post at JWT last September to pursue a new “creative partnership,” which is a New York operation called Cog. Lavoie’s shop, of course, is now in the hands of Sir Marty and WPP. The Advertising and Hybrid categories have an entry deadline of Feb. 6. Check out the complete list of the aforementioned categories’ jurors, including Doner’s Rob Strasberg and W+K Amsterdam expat Jeff Kling, after the jump.

Steve Simpson Heads Jury Chairs for ADC 90

Ogilvy North America’s recently installed chief creative officer Steve Simpson will serve as the first Annual Awards chair at the ADC’s, which we all know by now is turning 90 next year. Among the former Goodby partner’s duties will be to oversee the Advertising, Design and Interactive juries for the ADC Awards.

Joining Simpson as chairs for the 90th Awards gala include TAXI Amsterdam chairman/co-founder Paul Lavoie in the Advertising category, Venables Bell & Partners CD/partner Will McGinness in Interactive and former JWT ECD Wayne Best in Hybrid. Along with naming the jury chairs, the Art Directors Club is also tweaking the format in honor of next year’s event by reimplementing separate jury chairs for Illustration and Photography and unveiling the ADC Designism Award. We’re sure we’ll be hearing more ADC camp in the coming months to hype up the event. In the meantime, you can find out more here.
