2023 Advertising Person of the Year announced

Khaled AlShehhi has been awarded Dubai Lynx Advertising Person of the Year, Outstanding Contribution. One of the Festival's most prestigious awards, it celebrates an individual who has made a significant contribution to MENA's advertising in the previous year.

"I’d rate the Dubai Lynx as the best creative event in the MENA region. There’s the right blend of local and international, of creativity and insights to get everyone in the industry (or wanting to enter the industry) thinking about how they can create better campaigns."

Alex Maalouf
