Giannetti, chairwoman and chief creative officer, Vyas Giannetti Creative, has been invited to be a part of the inaugural jury of The Chillies - Sri Lanka's advertising awards show - to be held on May 20, 2006.
Giannetti will chair the jury for the Print Single and Campaign categories. She will also be among the judging panellists on the Campaign of the Year and Integrated Communications categories.
Laila Gunesekere, member, steering committee, Chillies Sri Lanka Advertising Awards 2006, says, "In keeping with international ad awards, the Chillies will be a week-long festival of exhibitions, seminars and a Chillies food festival."
Incidentally, Giannetti is also a part of the press jury at the Cannes International Advertising Festival to be held this year.
Last year, Giannetti was on the jury of the New York Festivals.
For the record, the Chillies were formed with the vision of raising the bar of creative excellence, striving for diversity, dynamism and world-class execution. The aim is to be Sri Lanka's premier awards competition and festival and to propel Sri Lanka's advertising and marketing communications industry to world-class standards.
This year, the advertising, marketing and media fraternity have come together under the auspices of the 4As and the IAA to conduct not just an awards show, but a comprehensive week of seminars, an exhibition and other activities to attract the attention of the greater community from May 16 to May 21.
