Now in its sixth year, Ad Age's Creativity Awards, the counterpart to our long-running A-List, will honor the year’s most innovative work, creative talent, marketing minds and production players.
Each year, we assemble juries of accomplished veterans across advertising, marketing, business and production to judge the awards and as such we are pleased to announce our four jury chairs for 2022. They are all seasoned leaders who have previously served as Creativity Awards judges and will bring tremendous experience, insight and leadership to the deliberations of next year’s honors.
Keith Cartwright, founder, president and chief creative officer of Cartwright, will helm the Work jury; Chaka Sobhani, global chief creative officer of Leo Burnett Worldwide and chief creative officer of Leo Burnett U.K. and Fallon U.K., will head up the People jury; Joan Colletta, senior director of global brand marketing at McDonald’s, will steer the Creative Marketing jury; and Ali Brown, president of Prettybird, will lead the Production Jury.
