Steve Stretton leads judges in Campaign Direct Awards 2003

Steve Stretton, the creative partner of Archibald Ingall Stretton, is to chair the judging panel for this year's Campaign Direct Awards, which will be held at the Grosvenor House on 8 July.

The panel comprises senior executives from the agency and client arenas, including Matt Button from Lexus Cars, Nigel Jones, the chief executive of Claydon Heeley Jones Mason, and Steve Harrison, the creative director of Harrison Troughton Wunderman.

The awards are designed to recognise and reward the role creative ideas play in effective direct communications. This year, new categories based on product types have been introduced to reflect the media-neutral approach of agencies.

The deadline for entries is 2 May and there is an early booking discount for tables at the awards of £1,400 plus VAT for bookings made before 31 May. For further information, contact Anna Campbell on 020 8267 4225 or
