The Golden award of Montreux Festival in Switzerland is scheduled to have its jury deliberations on April 25 this year in the Swiss resort town of Montreux. Also known for its annual jazz festival, the timing of the Montreux Advertising Festival is such that it is a good precursor to Cannes and Clio. The Festival of Media Global is also being held in Montreux from April 28 to 30.


This year’s Montreux golden awards jury includes Frank Bodin of Havas Switzerland, Peter Sun of Y&R, Mike Sutherland of BBDO London, Luis Dias of Draft FCB Lisbon, Max Posch of Fashion TV and Olivier Teepe founder of Cloudfactory Netherlands.

Ajay Chandwani, Director, Percept Limited is also on the jury this year as Asian participation is rising at the Festival. “Montreux is a great place to see the world’s best work before the work hits Cannes and other Festivals .”


BBDO New York and AMV BBDO from UK dominated the golds won last year. Being Pan European in focus with American and European agencies doing well in the past,  the Montreux festival has been gaining awareness in India and Asia.


Last year, Leo Burnett India won 2 golds in Print Craft for Bajaj Exhaust Fans and BBH India won a gold in the TV film category for World Gold Council.  Webchutney also won a gold in the Best Use of Mobile Media category.
