One of the region’s most formidable creative talents, Levi Slavin, Chief Creative Officer of Colenso BBDO in New Zealand, is joining ADFEST 2018 as Jury President, Film Lotus and Radio Lotus.
Slavin has won over 100 international awards across dozens of campaigns, including one Black and five Yellow Pencils at D&AD. His work has featured at TED, ranked #1 on the iTunes music and podcast charts, and has spanned product innovation, literature, television series, and film.
“I can’t wait to join the Film and Radio jury at ADFEST next year. Having recently returned to New Zealand, it’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends and reacquaint myself with the best work being produced in Asia,” said Slavin, who first joined Colenso in 2006, leaving in 2014 to take a global creative director role at Anomaly in New York.
In 2015, he returned to the BBDO fold as VP, Group Creative Director at BBDO New York. This year, he returned to “the best agency on earth, in the best place on earth” as Colenso BBDO’s Chief Creative Officer, based in Auckland.
“Levi has consistently produced brilliant ideas for leading brands at agencies all over the world. To say we’re excited to have him lead our Film and Radio Jury at ADFEST 2018 is an understatement,” said Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST.
