The One Show has announced its first wave of judges for the 2016 awards and, like last year, five of Canada’s top execs have been selected to pick the best of the best.

This year’s Canadian jurors are:

The list of judges announced so far is available on The One Show website.

Earlier this year, The One Show implemented a number of changes to its entry system, including quarterly deadlines allowing agencies to submit work as it becomes available. The third quarter deadline is at the end of November, when the first shortlist is expected to be announced. The final deadline for entry is Jan. 29, with an updated shortlist arriving shortly after. The winners will be announced during Creative Week in May.
