D&AD Impact announced the initial roster of Jury Presidents and Judges who will play an integral role in this distinctive, new global award show. Open for entries until the end of July, D&AD Impact will shine a light on the power of creativity to positively affect the way the world works – in business, in society, in culture and in the environment.


The diverse selection of jurors – a mix of creatives, designers, marketers, C-suite executives, entrepreneurs, journalists and thought leaders – will be looking to award a D&AD Pencil based on three criteria: an original and innovative idea at its core; clear and measurable impact in its chosen category area; and relevance to the business’ commercial needs.


“Impact is ultimately the only meaningful measure of good design. As one of the leading promoters of creativity in business, D&AD is perfectly positioned to reinforce this positive message and I am delighted to help shape the conversation this year,” said Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO and author of Change By Design (Urban Living Jury President).


The first eight Jury Presidents are: Neil Blumenthal, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Warby Parker, will lead Responsible Production & Consumption; Tim Brown, CEO, IDEO, will lead Urban Living; Anthony Casalena, Founder and CEO, Squarespace, will lead Industry Evolution; David Droga, Founder of Droga5, will lead Communication & Interaction; Jamie Oliver, World renowned celebrity chef, will lead Health & Wellness;  Lord David Puttnam, CBE, Film Producer, Educator, will lead Education;  Aline Santos Farhat, SVP, Global Marketing, Unilever, will lead Environmental Sustainability; Susan Smith Ellis, CMO, Getty Images, will lead Humanitarian Aid


The final roster of Presidents and Jury Members will be released later this month.


Making its debut in New York City as a part of Advertising Week XIII, the organizers have also confirmed Times Square’s PlayStation Theater will host the inaugural awards show on Tuesday, September 27.
