There are so many people on juries today who have no business being on juries. Causes are now awarded instead of smart, critical thinking. It’s clear that most of these jurors don’t understand good advertising. Only good sentiment. It’s lazy.

Not going to lie, I agree with OP. There are too many juries and it’s getting bad

The way I thought this was about jury duty...

I don’t know how old are you but award jury has been corrupt for a while now. But at least in the old days was way less categories, less submission and less awards given so it was harder to award too much bs.

I dont really think the new push for diversity has anything to do with the decline in judging quality, as I think some might be implying.

I think Cannes has gotten so big, that it’s impossible to find and vet good jurors for every slot. So you wind up with people who aren’t quite as a good, or are genuinely terrible.

Cannes is just watered down now.

There are some people I know who’ve been at the right place at the right time and been part of projects without much contribution on their part.
They just do what they’re told and now have multiple award-winning campaigns to their name and I now see them as juries in major award shows. It’s sad.

Need advice!

How is your agency managing the war for talent these days in terms of retention? I’m a little at odds with mine where we seem to be giving promotions and higher pay to any and everyone who gets an offer elsewhere. In the long term I don’t see how it benefits us to have talent with further inflated titles running things they aren’t skilled for. It also makes ppl like me who had no intention of looking want to look just because. Curious what others are experiencing/feeling?
