When it comes to creativity, I shall be looking for authenticity, insightful ideas, and conceptual brilliance. In execution, attention to detail and overall production quality are crucial to assess. Under impact, it is important to assess how well the campaign resonates with the audience and whether it meets its goals and objectives. It's important that the campaign aligns with the brand's identity and message. Finally, I am eager to see innovation - fresh ideas, unconventional formats, and smart use of technology will really stand out.”
