Effie Awards Ireland Announce Jury for Round One

IAPI announces its line-up of judges for the first round of judging for Effie Awards Ireland 2023.

Effie is a global forum that exists to lead, inspire and champion both the practice and practitioners of marketing effectiveness. The awards are open to all agencies and brands that want to be recognised for their most effective marketing efforts that made a difference and achieved real, measurable results. 

Damian Devaney, senior partner, TBV Global says: “Access to the Effies is an opportunity for Irish agencies to be part of a recognised global framework that champions effectiveness of creativity. And at 50 years old, it is a tried and trusted methodology. More importantly, It’s an opportunity for agencies to clearly demonstrate the impact they, and the clients marketing departments, can have on an organisations performance. The framework seeks clarity of objective setting, powerful insight development, strategic clarity and effective execution.  It’s about delivering results and I value the opportunity to serve as a jury chair and to support great Irish creativity.”

Damian, having spent his career building brands for Coca Cola, Diageo, O2 and Smurfitt Kappa, is the overall Jury Chair for Effie Awards Ireland. Having served as a global Effie judge for Best of the Best and previously fulfilling the role of Jury Chair for Effie Awards Ireland 2021, Devaney brings a wealth of experience and insight to advise this year’s new jury.
