DUBAI LYNX 2010 ATTRACTS 1364 ENTRIES AND OVER 1000 DELEGATES


11 March 2010– A total of 1364 entries from 16 countries have been submitted to this year’s Dubai International Advertising Festival, which kicks-off on Sunday. Dubai Lynx is the largest awards show celebrating creative excellence in MENA’s advertising and communications industry and the Festival will be attended by over 1000 delegates this year.

Entries have been submitted in 10 categories: TV/Cinema (159 entries), Print (300), Outdoor (233), Direct & Sales Promotion (94), Media (230), Radio (50), Interactive (83), Integrated (39), and the new TV/Cinema Craft (35) and Print Craft (141) categories. The entries will be judged by top international industry experts who will convene in Dubai at the weekend.

The top country participating is the UAE with 847 entries, followed by Lebanon with 142, Egypt on 124 entries, Saudi Arabia with 66 and Kuwait with 57.

“Honouring the best work and providing inspiration and motivation is paramount to agencies and their clients, especially during such an economic downturn. Despite an inevitable drop in the overall number of entries, we are delighted to still see growth in the Media category, a good start to the new Craft categories as well as a record number of attendees at the Festival,” said Philip Thomas, CEO of Cannes Lions, organisers of the event. “Dubai Lynx continues to be the largest awards in the region, the most sought after trophy to win and the premier industry event to attend.”

The winners will be announced and honoured during the Dubai Lynx awards ceremony and dinner held during the evening of Wednesday 17 March at The Palladium in Dubai, attended by 1,300 industry peers.

Other awards to be revealed during the Awards Ceremony are: Agency of the Year, Media Agency of the Year and the new Network of the Year. Saudi Telecom Company will be honoured with the 2010 Advertiser of the Year and Ramzi Raad, Chairman & CEO of TBWA\RAAD Middle East, will be presented with the prestigious 2010 Dubai Lynx Advertising Person of the Year Award.

    You’re a sellout

    I am a sellout?!!!! well why don’t you spill it out. Why exactly am I a sell out? Because I was elected president of the IAA Kuwait chapter and got them the representation of both festivals!!!

    FYI I reported the JWT Kuwait spoof entry, Dubai Lynx took action and the spoof did NOT win.

    If you have examples (with proof) about any spoof/ghost/copycat ads that have won or even got shortlisted then please send them over and I will be the first to address such ads and take the proper action.
