Prasoon Joshi, regional creative director for South and South East Asia, McCann-Erickson, has been invited to the prestigious D&AD Global Awards 2006 as a jury member for the Press Advertising category. The awards, popularly known as the Yellow Pencils (the silver awards are called the Yellow Pencils and the gold awards, the Black Pencils), are among the most respected and prestigious creative awards in the design and advertising industry.

Joshi will be heading to London in the first week of April 2006. The judging process will take place at the famous ExCel exhibition and conference centre there.
