Swede Will Oversee Cyber Jury

NEW YORK A Swedish Internet pioneer will helm the 2006 Cyber Lions Jury, the International Advertising Festival said today.

Matias Palm-Jensen, 46, is president and co-founder of Farfar in Stockholm. His clients include Absolut, Nokia, Heineken and Adidas, among others. He started one of the first Web portals in 1994 and co-founded digital ad agency Spiff Industries in 1996.

Farfar won the Cyber Grand Prix in 2001 for “Milko Music Machine,” a Web site for Milko, and Palm-Jensen was a Cyber Lions juror in 2002.

The 53rd International Advertising Awards will be held June 18-24 in Cannes, France.
