MEET THE JUDGES
We’ve looked far and wide for the best group of judges to assess this past year’s work, which includes experts across all of the main disciplines in our industry.
Luissandro del Gobbo, Ogilvy Chicago
Luissandro is an Italian-born writer currently residing in windy Chicago where he works as a partner creative director for Ogilvy & Mather. Over the past 12 years, he’s created award-winning work for several advertising agencies around the U.S., France, and Italy and clients ranging from global fashion brands, to cultural institutions, to soap.
Sherman Winfield, Fitzco
Sherman is a creative director at Fitzco, based in Atlanta. He has helped lead the agency to record financial growth while bringing in a steady flow of client results, creative awards, and international recognition. He helps run the Coca-Cola North America account, where as his first assignment, he turned a 30-second radio brief into a national relaunch of “Share A Coke.”
This year, the “1,000 Name Celebration” won six Cannes Lions, five Pencils at The One Show, including Gold and Best in Discipline, as well as major metal at the Art Directors Club, D&AD, LIA, and New York Festivals. It was named Best in Show at Radio Mercury Awards, was a People’s Voice nominee at Webbys, and was named one of Ad Age’s Best of 2017 in Integrated/Interactive. He also brought home a Clio for their Quikrete’s “Long Story Short” radio campaign.
Pat Feehery, Feer Industries
Originally a Philadelphia construction worker, Pat made up his mind to change career paths, but the ideals of blue-collar work stayed with him. It was the passion for the job and hard-work mentality that led him to places like Crispin Porter + Bogusky in 2008, where he worked on Domino’s, Microsoft, Burger King, Infiniti, and Vitaminwater. After leaving CP+B in 2012, Pat worked across the country for 72&Sunny, BBDO, The Martin Agency, and even with UN organizations aimed at promoting peace throughout the world.
In 2016, Pat became CCO of Amélie Company, where he led the agency to become AdAge’s 2017 Small Agency of the year. Here, Pat was fortunate to work on brands and causes he believed in, and that passion for brands created some amazing work. Most recently, he has gone back to consulting with agencies and brands like Deutsch LA, Erick & Kallman, and LYFT.
