AToMiC Awards 2017 jury revealed

Check out the industry folks who will determine the best work in advertising, media and tech.

Before our readers slip into their holiday TV-binge-watching-and-sugar-cookie-comas, keep in mind that the deadline for the 2017 AToMiC Awards will be just a few weeks after we all ring in the new year (for the keeners among you, the early bird deadline is tomorrow).

While the industry works like Santa’s elves to put together entries for the best work in advertising, tech and media (due Jan. 20), we can all at least look ahead to warmer weather in May 2017, when the AToMiC Awards will be handed out.
