The Week: People News - Silburn to chair the BTAA

Paul Silburn has been named as the chairman of the British Television Advertising Awards jury for 2008.

Silburn has been working as a creative consultant since 2006, and before that was the executive creative director at Fallon North America. He said: "This is an exciting time in our business and for the BTAA itself, as we move beyond traditional TV and cinema advertising into areas such as digital and branded content. That's why I'm inviting, not only the best creatives, directors, producers and clients from the UK on to the jury, but I've extended the invitation to some of the world's best practitioners in these areas, too."
