Andreas Dahlqvist, chief creative officer of Grey New York, will be the digital jury president at the London International Awards (LIA) 2016.
Dahlqvist said, “I’m really looking forward to heading up this category. It’s a category that is capturing so many things right now. Very few of the new exciting ideas are not relying on a big digital component. It’s the intersection of almost every other category at the moment and that’s why it’s where you still see the most innovation happen.”
Dahlqvist has created groundbreaking integrated campaigns for clients that include McDonald’s, General Mills, Diesel Jeans, Coca-Cola, Chevrolet and Skoda. Through his current role at Grey, along with his past experience at McCann and DDB, he has won assorted major creative awards for his work, including the Cannes Titanium and Grand Prix Lions.
Dahlqvist will head a digital jury which also consists of:
•Martin Cedergren, executive creative director and founding partner, M&C Saatchi, Stockholm
•Samuel Estrada, managing director/creative VP, McCann Erickson, Bogota
•Corinna Falusi, chief creative officer, Ogilvy & Mather New York
•Mike Geiger, managing partner/chief digital officer, David&Goliath, El Segundo, Calif.
