First Dubai Lynx gains entries from 15 countries


The organisers of the 1st Dubai Lynx, the advertising and communication awards

honouring creative excellence across the Middle East and North Africa, has

announced that a total of 1679 entries from 15 countries will be competing this

year in the categories of Print (864 entries), TV/Cinema (256 entries), Outdoor

(247 entries), Radio (85 entries), Interactive (65 entries), Direct (140

entries) and Integrated (22 entries).

Using the same state-of-the-art electronic voting systems used by judges at the

Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival and at the Eurobest Awards to

ensure neutrality and integrity, 25 leading international creatives from 17

different countries will convene in Dubai in the next few days making up the

three different juries that will set the creative standards for the region. The

Integrated jury will be composed of members from both the Traditional and

Direct & Interactive juries.

“We are delighted to have such a strong start to these new awards. It’s a great

introduction and endorsement of the region’s desire to establish the definitive

standard for creative excellence”, said Philip Thomas, CEO of the awards. “We

will continue to build on this successful launch providing the region with

annual first-class awards”, continued Thomas.

The first crystal Dubai Lynx trophies will be presented to the winners who will

be revealed and honoured at the inaugural Dubai Lynx Awards Ceremony held at

Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on 19 March 2007.
