BBDO Exec to Lead Cannes Radio Jury

NEW YORK David Guerrero, chairman and chief creative officer at Omnicom Group’s BBDO Guerrero Ortega in the Philippines, has been named president of the Radio Lions jury at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.

Guerrero served on last year’s Radio Lions panel and has chaired juries at the Asia Pacific Adfest and the Melbourne Art Directors Club Awards.

“Radio represents a massive opportunity for all of us,” he said. “It may be the only category you can judge with your eyes shut—but it’s certainly not easy. And as a jury we’ll be looking for work that explores fresh possibilities within the medium.”

The Cannes Lions festival will be held June 17-23. The Radio Lions are a relatively new addition to the prestigious international creative show, debuting in 2005.
