NYF Advertising Awards Announces Inaugural Creative Commerce Category Jury

New York Festivals Advertising Awards has announced a new Creative Commerce Category in recognition of the important role of commerce in driving creative business transformation.

Known for leading the revolution in creative commerce across the industry, VMLY&R Commerce Global CCO Manuel Bordé has been recruited as Jury President preceding alongside a slew of global industry influencers breaking new ground in commerce.

Commerce channels have the most untapped creative potential to grow people and brands.

I’m thrilled to join New York Festivals in honouring the bold and ambitious work that is redefining the space of commerce as both emotionally engaging and business driving,” said Bordé.

“New York Festivals is honoured to welcome this diverse group of award-winning and internationally recognised executives to our Executive Jury. Guided by Manuel’s vast global and agency experience, we’re eager to see how they collectively celebrate a new type of creativity that creates memorable experiences for consumers, while driving conversion and sales impact for brands,” said Scott Rose, president, New York Festivals Advertising Awards.
