New York Festivals Announces 2020 Financial Category Executive Jury

New York Festivals Advertising Awards has unveiled the 2020 Financial Category Executive Jury (formerly Midas). This is the first year that the Midas Awards has merged with NYF’s Advertising Awards creating a new category group honouring campaigns that recognise all types of media used in financial services advertising and marketing. A prominent global panel will review all the shortlisted financial services entries selected by the international New York Festivals Grand Jury.

NYF’s Financial Category Executive Jury is comprised of a diverse group of founding officers, creative partners, and executive creative directors from global advertising agencies as well as internationally recognised experts in financial policy and communications. This elite group of award-winning creatives is well versed in financial advertising and will provide an even more comprehensive evaluation of the global creative work submitted.

“With Midas residing under the umbrella of New York Festivals Advertising Awards, there’s even more of an opportunity for the incredible work emanating from the financial services sphere to be center stage,” said Ellen Smyth, CEO, New York Festivals. “The Midas Financial Category Executive Jury will assemble a world-class collection of award-worthy financial services work that represents flawless and expertly executed financial campaigns from around the globe.”

“NYF is thrilled to have these stellar innovators from the world of financial advertising on board to judge entries into NYF’s inaugural Financial Category,” said Scott Rose, executive director of New York Festivals Advertising Awards. “Their deep understanding of the category as well as their years of industry expertise crafting award-winning financial services campaigns will result in ground-breaking entries within this genre being honoured.”
