"As a marketer with media planning roots, I see effectiveness as the ultimate goal of all our work," Porter said. "I’ll be looking out for entries that make me jealous, that make me and other jurors wish that we had thought of it first. I’m expecting us to see work of the very highest quality as APAC is proving itself more than capable of world-class standards in this area.”

Tan commented that the media landscape has "changed drastically in such a short period of time, which poses unique challenges and opportunities to all players in the industry." She added that she looks forward to seeing the best and most innovative media strategies put forward from the region.

Tangrams will be announcing the Presidents of its other juries within the next few weeks.
