Compelling words from

Jim Carroll, Chair of Judges 

I confess I have for the most part avoided judging. I never liked the idea of veterans and worthies critiquing the next generation of youthful tyros. And ‘Judge not lest ye be judged,’ was always ringing in my ears.

I’m so glad I made an exception for the APG Creative Planning Awards.

- APG Chair Matt Tanter

So here we are. 2019. The year of no theme. For 25 years these awards have celebrated and recognised the very best in creative strategy. Strategy that has defined, redefined brands and their trajectory. And yet every year we have created a theme to pre-define and to pre-empt, the commonality of the most exceptional thinking.
