Colenso BBDO’s Beth O’Brien and DDB’s Damon Stapleton to serve as judges at One Show 2021

The One Club for Creativity has announced two from New Zealand who will serve as judges for The One Show 2021.


The two jurors from New Zealand are Beth O’Brien, CD, Colenso BBDO Auckland for Integrated & Experiential/Immersive, and Damon Stapleton, CCO, DDB Auckland, who will judge work in Direct Marketing.

The complete list of the global jury for The One Show 2021 juries can be viewed here.  To ensure the safety of jurors during the continued pandemic, all judging will be conducted online for the second year in a row.

Says Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club: “The quality of jurors has long been a hallmark of The One Show. This group is among the industry’s top creative thinkers and doers from around the world who will judge work through the lens of creativity of ideas and quality of execution.”

After providing the creative community with last year’s largest global awards show and definitive international and regional creative rankings, The One Club for Creativity is now accepting entries for The One Show 2021.

Notable changes have been made to help agencies and brands who continue to be affected by the global pandemic, including extended deadlines, and new categories and disciplines that reflect the way the industry now works.

Entries can be submitted now, with fees increasing after each deadline period. Regular deadline March 12, 2021, extended deadline is March 19, 2021, and final deadline March 26, 2021.

Unlike for-profit awards shows such as Cannes and others, The One Club is a non-profit organization that puts revenue generated from awards entries back into the industry to fund programs under its four pillars: Diversity & Inclusion, Education, Gender Equality and Professional Development.

These programs include the annual Where Are All The Black People diversity conference and career fair, ONE School free portfolio program for Black creatives, Creative Boot Camps for diverse college students, Right the Ratio Summits addressing gender equality, 2nd Skill to train traditional creatives on UX, UI and content strategy to upskill and future-proof them for the second creative career, Global Educators Summits, Creative Leaders Retreats, mentorship programs for more than 200 young creatives each year, bi-annual Saturday Career Workshops for high school students, and more.

The One Club for Creativity, producer of The One Show, ADC Annual Awards , Type Directors Club Communication Design and Typeface Design awards, Young Guns and Creative Week, is the world’s foremost non-profit organization whose mission is to support and celebrate the success of the global creative community.
