Midsummer Awards to honour the best of global creative work

LONDON - Advertising agencies, production companies, clients and music companies across the globe are gearing up for the 12th annual Midsummer Awards to celebrate international artistic achievements in film and television.

The Midsummer Awards was first held in 1992, after London Festival founder Peter-Paul Cover teamed up with former London creative director Terry Howard and founder of the Creative Ball. It judges ads purely on their creative merits and aims to promote excellence in the industry.

Categories include Best Animation, Best Director, Best Film Production Company, Best Music Company and Best Post-production Company.

This year's chairman of the jury is Nik Studzinski, creative director of Publicis. The jury comprises: Steve Ward, from McCann Erickson; Matt Gooden, from Wieden & Kennedy; Alex Grieve from Bartle Bogle Hegarty; Euro RSCG's Nigel Rose; and JWT's Richard Saunders.

The awards take place at The Royal Hospital in Chelsea, with DJ Sean Rowley to play at the awards following his stint at Glastonbury and the Miramax party at The Cannes Film Festival. Tickets can be bought at the Midsummer website.
