Ian Bates to judge the 2018 International Echo Awards

Today, our Creative Director, Ian Bates, is jetting off to New York for the second round of judging for 2018 International Echo Awards. With judges hand-picked by the DMA globally, Ian is one of this select group representing the UK.

"I’m delighted to have been selected to judge these prestigious international awards. I’ve seen some truly inspiring data-driven creativity in the first round of judging and am looking forward to the face-to-face sessions with my contemporaries from around the globe."

– Ian Bates, Creative Director, Prophecy Unlimited

With experience of judging for D&AD, as well as being category chair and Grand Prix judge at the DMAs, and we’re hugely proud of the recognition this demonstrates for the hard work and influence Ian has in the industry. And also a little jealous that he gets to spend some time in New York this week!
