The awards have indicated that the 2022 executive jury and grand jury panel selection process is in progress. Executive jury sessions will convene in June. 

The deadline to enter the 2022 awards is Friday, 1 April 2022. 

For the 12th year in a row, the New York Festivals executive jury will review entries from around the globe. Fede Garcia, BCW's global chief creative officer, will helm the live judging that is scheduled for two consecutive days in June 2022. 

"NYF is thrilled Fede Garcia is onboard as jury president for 2022," says Scott Rose, executive director of the New York Festivals Advertising Awards. "As a creative leader, he's known for big ideas that challenge convention and he has a reputation as a creative who understands and embraces innovation. He brings to the jury panel a thorough understanding of creating multifaceted, groundbreaking work for prominent brands."

"The New York Festivals executive jury is held in incredibly high esteem and I'm honoured to serve as this year's executive jury president," says Garcia. "I look forward to judging the short-list with our stellar jury panel of exceptionally innovative and creative professionals. I look forward to lively deliberations and brilliant disruptive work being awarded."

New for 2022, NYF's Advertising Awards has removed all categories that award work for NGOs from the competition category roster.

"The 2022 advertising competition will champion 'real work' for brands," says Rose. "There is no shortage of societal and global issues that need to be addressed and the people who have the megaphone and are steering the ship to tackle these issues are true heroes. But we're narrowing the competition's focus down to creative work that drives commerce."

"With so much attention rightfully on societies' issues, the 'lift' is even harder for brands; we want to acknowledge that and make a fair lane for that work to compete," concludes Rose.

The creative partnership with industry icon David Sable will continue for 2022. New episodes of NYF's video series Creativity From The Other Side premiers with an interview with Garcia.
