LONDON—Senior executives from leading independent agencies from across Europe have joined the jury for the 2020 EMEA region SABRE Awards.

This year’s jury will include leaders from some of the UK’s most creative independents, including Adam Clyne of Coolr; Ali Maynard-James of Manifest; Gabrielle Shaw of Gabrielle Shaw Communications; Gerry Hopkinson of Unity; James Gordon-MacIntosh of Hope & Glory; Jo Spadaccino of Pegasus; Joe Mackay-Sinclair of The Romans; Nan Williams of Four Communications; Nik Govier of Blurred; Rich Barker of M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment; Ruth Kieran of Cirkle; Steven Strickland  of Tinker Tailor Trouble Maker; Tom Berry of Chameleon; and Tom Lawless of Headland Consultancy.

Continental Europe is equally well represented, with senior personnel including Alexander Dourchev of All Channels (Bulgaria); Charly Lammers van Toorenburg from LVT PR (the Netherlands); Gregoire Poisson of Interel (Belgium); Hanna Lemmetti of Miltton (Finland); Isabelle Wolf of Kingcom (France); Jeremy Galbraith of BoldT (Belgium, pictured); Johan Yilmaz of Gullers Group, Jonas Sevenius of Jung Relations, and Maja Haraldsson of House of Radon (Sweden); Matthias Wesselmann of fischerAppelt and Michael Kemme of Oliver Schrott Kommunikation (Germany); Monica Colmenero Lopez of Atrevia (Spain); Sergey Zverev of CROS (Russia); and Vassilis Mourdoukoutas  of V+O (Greece).

“One of the things that distinguishes the SABRE Awards—and makes them the most sought-after awards in the industry—is the quality of our judging panel,” says Paul Holmes, who serves as chair of the jury. “We bring together people spanning different geographies and different sectors, with a wealth of industry experience that helps them separate the truly great work from all the high quality entries we receive.”

The early deadline for this year’s EMEA competition is December 16, 2019, with entries accepted until midnight on January 24, 2020, with payment of an additional late fee.
