The biggest novelty and far the greatest name this October will be Mr. Eduardo Marques,  executive creative director in California based 180LA creative agency. He is going to be chairman of jury in Best Practices competition.

“I expect to see a lot of culturally relevant work for the region. Work that pushes the boundaries and expands the golden drum Eduardo Marquesmind. And of course, I’d love to see world-class work too. Campaigns that resonate around the world, seamlessly integrated, with an amazing craft and a powerful brand message. What I don’t want to see? Work that’s created for festival purposes only,” – says Eduardo Marques, Golden Drum Best Practice Jury President.

Aforementioned “Best Practice Section” is primarily intended for campaigns, concepts and companies that integrate a larger number of communication channels and by doing so,  apply original concepts to relay a message to its target audience. In the days to follow organizing comitee will announce other members who will be joining President Eduardo on the international jury. Together they will evaluate submitted entries in eight competition categories: Integrated campaigns, Activation programme, Branded content, Events, Public relations, Media, Capture of local spirit, New or innovative.
