World Media Awards judging panel announced

World Media Group (WMG) has revealed the final panel of judges for the inaugural World Media Awards, which aim to recognise the best international, content-driven communications campaigns.


A selection of senior clients from Nissan, Shell and Deutsche Telekom will be joined by agency and media owner leaders, as well as M&M Global’s managing director, publishing, Jeremy King.

Nicolas Sennegon, president of WMG and global managing director at The Economist, said: “We are delighted to have such high calibre judges for the World Media Awards.

The deadline for entries – see more details here – is 21 January 2016, with judging due to take place in February. The winners will be announced at an exclusive, invitation-only reception on Wednesday 16 March at The Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, London.

The jury – headed up by Alex Altman (pictured), managing director at MEC Global Solutions, Chris Carmichael, global head of media at HSBC, and Matt McAllester, European editor at Newsweek – will also select an overall Grand Prix winner.

“In particular, with a number of senior client marketers from Shell, Nissan and LVMH among others taking a seat on the panel, it demonstrates the importance of content-driven marketing in today’s international marketer’s media mix.

“Every one of our judges has great expertise in global content-driven advertising and their views on each entry will be invaluable – no doubt creating interesting debate as we go through the entries.”
