The international flavor at the Caples Awards is palpable in the work and represented in the truly diverse makeup of our judges. We’ve got top creative directors from agencies across the globe.

The 2013 jury is no exception, with nearly 50 senior-level creative directors from countries as diverse as New Zealand, Germany, Australia, Spain, the United States, England, Austria, Canada, and more.

Hosted by Direct Marketing News, the Caples Awards honors the best and most original interactive, digital, integrated, and direct marketing creative from around the world in 25+ categories—everything from email, content, and social media, to the most courageous client of the year.

This year’s Caples will put an added emphasis on the Courageous Client Award—an established Caples category, to honor those who boldly venture into the unexplored and achieve the unexpected.

Judges will convene in NYC for two intense days of closed-door judging, followed by a public reveal on November 14 where the winners will be announced as attendees sip cocktails and have the chance to browse the best work this side of anywhere.

“Creating courageous work requires the trust and respect between client and agency—a magical formula,” says Gary Scheiner, Caples judging chair. “But recognizing courageous work takes the keen eye of creative leaders who can separate the fearless from the brave. That is precisely what we have assembled with our 2013 jury. I am immensely excited to watch them battle and debate as they find this year's examples of courage and creativity.”

This year’s jury includes:

  • Mitch Alison, Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi
  • Wayne Pick, Executive Creative Director, SVP, RAPP New York
  • Kim Pick, Executive Creative Director, RAPP New York
  • Frédéric De Vries, Creative Director, Interactive / Head Interactive Concepts, Duval Guillaume Modem
  • Rene Eugster, Creative Director/Owner, Agentur am Flughafen
  • Nancy Harhut, Chief Creative Officer, Wilde Agency
  • Jonas Lembke, Creative Director, DGAC/BBDO Proximity
