Ocean Outdoor Competition Attracts Strong Entries

Maddie Cotterill

The best entries in Ocean Outdoor’s Art of Outdoor digital competition, which rewards innovative and creative work in digital out of home advertising, will be showcased at the IMAX cinema next week in London.

The winners will be announced next Thursday 11th October when Ocean, in association with Brand Republic, hosts an awards ceremony at the IMAX cinema.

Richard Malton, Marketing Director at Ocean Outdoor told us “Once again the calibre of entries has been exceptional and the scale of the creative ideas impressive. Digital out of home is a powerful medium with big audiences, but this year’s entries have more than captured the potential and the possibilities.”

This year’s judging panel includes: Steve Parker, managing director of Starcom Mediavest; Roy Jeans, chief executive of Rapport; Posterscope’s James Davies; Pavlos Themistocleous, head of digital creative at OgilvyOne; and Craig Morgan, innovation director at Grey London, one of last year’s winners.

Andy Fowler, executive creative director of Brothers and Sisters; our very own editor in chief Adrian Cotterill; Carolyn Nugent, head of digital, UK, Kinetic; Rich Sutcliffe, digital development director at Haymarket Business Media and Tim Bleakley, Ocean Outdoor’s chief executive complete the line-up.

The top three entries will share a GBP 250,000 prize fund and their work will be showcased across four of Ocean’s key digital locations – Eat Street @ Westfield, Holland Park Roundabout, Two Towers East and Two Towers West.
