Preeti Vyas Giannetti has been invited to judge the prestigious New York Festivals by festival director Michael A. Demetriades.
She has been invited to attend the prestigious award functions in New York, coming January at the Millennium Broadway and Hudson Theatre in Manhattan.
Preeti joins the list of senior Indian creative professionals, who have been invited by international advertising awards in the recent past. Other notable examples include Piyush Pandey, executive chairman and national creative director, O&M, who had headed the jury at this year's Cannes festival, and Prasoon Joshi, regional CD, South & South East Asia, McCann-Erickson, who has been made a member of the executive jury for the Clio awards.
This year, the New York Festivals has made optimum use of its online judging facility to form a jury that includes a veritable who's who of leading names in the communications business.
Preeti had the honourable as well as daunting task of judging over 300 TV commercials, online in a mere 6 days.
Says Preeti about her experience, "It was a gruelling task, but well worth the effort. It's indeed an honour to be a part of the jury for such a distinguished award show, and I hope in the near future more of us from the Indian Advertising fraternity would become a regular feature at such events."
Preeti Vyas Giannetti is the chairperson and chief creative officer of the Mumbai headquartered Vyas Giannetti Creative. This accolade comes in the wake of a series of new business wins at VGC, the recent one being Discovery Travel & Living - the new lifestyle channel from the Discovery stable.
The NYF has a long and illustrious history in honouring excellence in creative communications throughout the world. For close to 50 years, it has been inspiring minds to think big. In turn, the festival has emerged as one of the most esteemed award functions in the ad-mad world.
Vyas Giannetti Creative has accounts such as the corporate business of the A V Birla group, Birla Sunlife, Taj Hotels, certain brands of The Times of India group and Pidilite Industries.
