Dubai Lynx Names 2016 Juries

10 January 2016 - The Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity has today named the 56 international jurors set to judge entries from across the MENA region at the 10th Dubai Lynx.

Ascential Events (Europe) Limited’ Chairman, Terry Savage, called the international mix of talent a ‘credit to the region’s creative output’. Savage added, “MENA took a haul of 33 Lions at Cannes Lions last year - a big achievement on an international stage, particularly when you consider that back in 2001 they only took home one. The region’s creativity is soaring so it’s essential that we have quality and balanced international juries at Dubai Lynx. We’re pleased to be welcoming a collective of true achievers to judge the work.”
