Eurobest announces its 2023 Jury members

Jury line-up sees representation from a Bulgarian agency for the first time

Global platforms and brands including adidas, Bayer, Mars Wrigley, Prime Video and Warner Music Group sit on Juries

Eurobest has today revealed the line-up of experts selected to award Europe’s very best creative and effective work to benchmark excellence for 2023. This year’s line-up consists of 94 leading industry experts, from 21 countries, across the breadth of creativity in Europe who will convene in London later this year to judge the work.

Eurobest welcomes the first representative from a Bulgarian agency to the Jury line-up this year and welcomes back Slovakia to the Jury after 13 years.

Konstantin Trendafilov, Founder / Creative Director, Human, Bulgaria, is one of the most awarded creative directors in Bulgaria and is co-owner and creative director of Human – one of the fastest growing agencies in Bulgaria, in addition to being a bestselling author and musical artist.

Commenting on his appointment, Trendafilov said: “I am thrilled to represent a Bulgarian agency on its first appearance on Eurobest’s Jury, since this brings me closer to my mission – to show Bulgarian Creatives that they deserve a seat at the European table. I hope my appointment will pave the way for more Bulgarian creatives to lead Juries in the future. As part of the Film Craft Jury for this year, I’m hoping to see ideas that can’t be proposed by Chat GPT, I am looking for that human touch behind a piece of work.

Among the Holding Company networks represented are: BBDO, Dentsu, Forsman & Bodenfors, FCB, Havas, Leo Burnett, Ogilvy, Mullenlowe, Publicis Worldwide,and Wunderman Thompson, as well as Independent Networks: Edelman, Jung von Matt, Serviceplan & Wieden+Kennedy.
