“The closer you can get to the people you want consuming your content, the greater your odds of creating something that they not only want to consume, but even share and talk about with other people. This is the intersection between advertising and entertainment.”- Eva Santos, Global Chief Creative Officer, Proximity Worldwide, Barcelona 
 

"I strongly believe that the advertising industry now, more than ever needs to be more about entertainment. It is an honour to judge The A-List Awards which is all about just that." Anna Qvennerstedt, Copywriter, Senior Partner, Chairman of the Board Forsman & Bodenfors, Stockholm 
 

 
 "The best advertising has always been is entertaining. But what is exciting about right now is you can put advertising and entertainment  into a blender and turn the blade speed way up. What I love about The A-List Hollywood Awards is that they are right in the middle of that mix." - Bobby Pawar, MD, Chief Creative Officer, Publicis Worldwide, South Asia
 

 
"Advertising and marketing is being seduced by technology and innovation with endless possibilities and channels. But one thing will always be universal: authentic, emotional and human stories are what resonates and connects people. The A-List Hollywood Award couldn’t sit at a more perfect intersection for our times.”   - Laura Thoel, Managing Director, The Sweet Shop, Los Angeles
 

 
"The worlds of entertainment and advertising are blending more than ever, providing the opportunity to utilize new platforms, new influencers and new ways of marketing. However, with this evolution comes the challenge for brands to evolve without losing their most important currency - their brand soul and identity." - Renato Fernandez, CCO, TBWA\Chiat\Day, Los Angeles
 

 
"In my experience as both a creative director and film director, I can only assure you that advertising and entertainment are truly complementary; married forever in all their ragged, demanding, disciplined, hilarious, humbling, sometimes-awful, always-entertaining glory. Those two deserve each other." - Michael Aimette, EVP - Global Executive Creative Director, BBDO, New York
 

 
"The A-list Hollywood Awards is a celebration of the new breed of creativity driven by digital and social, recognising stellar work at the intersection of entertainment and advertising". - Preethi Mariappan, VP, Emerging Experiences EMEA, SapientRazorfish, Berlin
 

 
"Because the phone is the new TV and platforms are the new channels, brands have a unique opportunity to become the new content creators. It's a truly exciting time to be in advertising." - Steve Babcock, Chief Creative Officer, VaynerMedia, New York
 

 
 “With the fragmented media landscape and the endless possibilities and confusion it has thrown up, never has the focus on the ‘Big Creative Idea’ been more important than now. I look forward to celebrating the Creative gems that truly cut through and touch the human emotions at The A-List Hollywood Awards” Ajab Samrai, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy & Mather, Japan
 

 
 "It’s true. Everything has been done before. So, as a creative, it’s your job to find that one idea that has only been done once, but done prior to 1 B.C. 
- Jimmy Smith, Chairman/Chief Creative Officer, Amusement Park, Los Angeles
 

 
 "We always say, people hate ads but everyone loves a good story. The A-List Awards showcase the great stories created at the intersection of advertising and entertainment." - Jason Harris, President/CEO - Mekanism, New York
 

 
"Street corners are more interesting than streets. That's where you get more perspective and where cool types usually hang around. The corner of Adland and Entertainment is one of the most exciting places in every country right now. The A-List Awards is a celebration of that." 
André (Dede) Laurentino, Global ECD - Ogilvy, London
 

 
 "We live in a world where advertising has become something to avoid, and yet people are spending more time on screens than ever. The fight for attention and memory now is so much more than just a competition against other ads. The advertising industry doesn’t simply need to learn from its cousins in the entertainment industry, it needs to become one with it. Branded messaging should be entertaining at its core – what better way to connect with your consumers and grow affinity for your brand than to use your marketing dollars to entertain the public?" - Arthur Tsang, Chief Creative Officer, BBH, China
 

 
“Great advertising is about good storytelling. Good storytelling entertains and is effective. The A-List celebrates the brilliance of such endeavours.”  
- Rosalynn Tay, CEO - Dentsu Aegis Network, Singapore 
 

 
I grew up in an age, where mainstream advertising often WAS entertainment. So for me the two industries are naturally intertwined. Unfortunately today this is not always the case. Much of what we see around us every day is boring and predictable, so we have a responsibility to seek out and celebrate the ideas and work that inspires and delights, in whatever shape or form it comes in. - Chris Kyme, CEO & Creative Director Kymechow, Hong Kong
 

 
“There is way too much bad content in advertising in the world. The A-List celebrates the clients and agencies that creates creative and engaging ideas that people love to see and love to share. The kind of stuff we need more of, and the stuff that really shows what good content and advertising can do for brands" Mikael Jørgensen, CEO, &Co. Copenhagen
 

 
"Entertainment is to amuse the audiences, advertising is to sell the products; now they're becoming one thing. It actually gives us a great opportunity of creativity, lets us convince our clients to accept brilliant ideas or stories to sell the products."Murphy Chou, Chief Creative Officer, Leo Burnett, Taiwan
 

 
“At the end of the day, people just want to be inspired.  That’s what I look for in the work and what the A-List culture is supporting across all platforms worldwide.  Good work is remembered and celebrated, no matter what the medium.”  Lisa Tauscher, MD / Executive Producer, Partizan, Los Angeles
 

 
"Great entertainment x brand collaborations not only connect with audiences at a far deeper level than traditional advertising - but they also have the potential to impact culture. That, for me, is what lies at the heart of The A-List Hollywood Awards." - Patrick Mulford, CEO – theAudience, Los Angeles
 

 
 “The best and most successful advertising has always been the most entertaining. But in today’s world where consumers don’t just choose what they want to see, but when they want to see it, entertainment isn't just a key for brand success. It’s a necessity for survival." - Chris Hirsch, Partner, VP, Executive Creative Director, lg2, Toronto
 

 
 "However you choose to convey your message, and whichever media you work with, remember that branding should always bring joy - at the end of the day, it's all entertainment." - Philippe Meunier, CCO/Co-Founder, SID LEE, Montreal
