Organisers of the European Festival of Creativity, Eurobest, have announced the impressive line-up of distinguished jury presidents, who, along with Sir John Hegarty, will lead ten juries in the award’s 25th year.
The Outdoor and Radio juries will be led by Olivier Altmann, Chief Creative Officer of Publicis France. During his career Olivier has worked on some of the world’s most iconic brands, including BMW, McDonald’s, Michelin, Wonderbra, Club Med, Nestlé, Orange and Renault and has won numerous awards along the way including two Eurobest Grands Prix.
He worked at FCB and BDDP (now TBWA) before launching his own agency in 1998, BDDP&Fils. Six years later he joined Publicis Conseil, the largest advertising agency in France. Under his creative leadership the Paris flagship agency has been named Advertising Agency of the Year (2008, 2009) and Creative Agency of the Year (2008, 2011). In 2011, Publicis Conseil was ranked as the number one advertising agency in France by both the Gunn Report and The Big Won Creative Rankings and Olivier was ranked the fourth best chief creative officer in the world. During his leadership as Worldwide Chief Creative Officer the network more than doubled its Cannes Lions wins.
About his position on the Eurobest jury Olivier Altmann says, “I’m very honored to be part of this special 25th birthday of the Eurobest award show. Even more knowing that Sir John Hegarty, an advertising legend and well respected friend, will lead us along the way. Outdoor is probably one the most exciting places for innovative ideas at the moment, as it combines real events with digital. Regarding radio, it is one of the few mediums that has resisted the European recession quite well, so I’m curious to hear if some brands have bet on creativity to grow in this tough environment.”
