 THE A-LIST JURY
 
"It's a really exciting time for advertising. The real focus now is on entertainment, which opens the door for brand new ways of storytelling. That movement is also opening space for diversity when it comes to the type of talent and skills you'd encounter at an ad agency." - Bianca Guimaraes,
VP, Creative Director, BBDO, New York
 

 
"With the advances that technology has made in recent years, and the steps the industry has taken towards being more accessible and more representative of a diverse population, we’re seeing more high-quality work than ever before, along with more ways in which audiences consume it. It’s important we celebrate this work through events like The A-List Hollywood Awards, and recognise the people who make it for the ways in which they are able tell a story, move audiences, create empathy and call people to action. The scope for us to shape and influence the world around us is exciting and far reaching.” - Spencer Dodd, Managing Director & Executive Producer, Sweetshop, London
 

 
“I’ve always loved work that seamlessly blends advertising and entertainment together.  What’s exciting is how many new ways we can create it.”  - Tyler Hampton, Creative Director, Venables Bell and Partners, San Francisco
 

 
"Today's generation is in constant need of entertainment. No generation in history has ever been so easily bored. They jump from Facebook to Instagram to Netflix to Snapchat to Tinder to YouTube in a matter of seconds. Advertising won't stand a chance unless is as engaging as all of the aforementioned. That's today's challenge. More than ever, we need to encourage, support and celebrate the kind of work that not only blurs but erases the line between advertising and entertainment." -Federico García, Global Executive Creative Director, Huge, New York
 

 
Per Pedersen, Global Creative Chairman, Grey, New York 
 

 
"Is it useful, entertaining, or beautiful? We’ve been trained to ask this question about everything we create. Yet, as we continue to embrace non-traditional advertising and ad-blind consumers, we must wonder if this is enough. To me, the answer is obvious. It’s not enough – it’s the bare minimum for entry. As the A List Hollywood Awards shows every year, work must transcend our traditional understanding of advertising in new and unexpected ways to truly captivate, challenge, and inspire." -Ronnie Caltabiano, Head of Production, Area 23, New York
 

 
 
"Advertising key criteria is to be entertaining. As we are trying to penetrate the consumers’ busy lifestyle, entertaining them is the basic good manners we can offer. The higher the entertainment, the easier wecan get our message accepted and remembered by the consumer."
-Awoo Lai, CCO, BBDO Shanghai
 

"From the days of the soap opera to the recent rise of branded content entertainment has always been in the DNA of good advertising. Today in times of constant distraction and a fierce battle for attention only useful or entertaining content stands a chance." -Felix FenzManaging Director / Creative, Grabarz & Partner, Hamburg
