The Immortal Awards Announces 6 Projects Receiving Finalist Status Following MEA Jury Day

The MEA jury day at this year’s Immortal Awards wrapped up last week, with six projects receiving Finalist status and qualifying for the global round of judging.

Hosted in partnership with BIG KAHUNA FILMS, it is the first time ever that the MEA jury day has been hosted in person. The day saw 17 shortlisted projects compete for a place in the final round of judging.

Following a day of tough and inspiring debate, the jury deemed six projects were good enough to represent Middle East and African advertising on the global stage, joining the seven Finalists from Europe in the next round.

The six projects will join the Finalists from the remaining regional jury sessions - North America, LATAM and APAC - alongside the seven European Finalists at the global round of judging on Thursday 1st December, where jurors will decide which projects will receive either Commendation status or an Immortal Award.
