Creative directors from Lida, Whitespace and RR Donnelley sign on to judge Cream Midlands 2014

Cream Midlands, the awards show that recognises the very best talent from across the South West, Wales, Midlands and the East, has officially opened for entries with creative directors from Lida, Whitespace and RR Donnelley set to judge this year’s entries.

With great talent working all over Britain Cream Midlands sets out to bring the very best regional agencies into the spotlight awarding advertising agencies, graphic designers, art directors, copywriters and more with categories including Best Use of Illustration, Art Direction, Advert on a Mobile Medium, Press Campaign and Corporate Identity to name but a few.

Joining Nicky Bullard (Lida), Ian Valentine (Whitespace) and Corey Stewart (RR Donnelley) on the judging panel will be ViVid’s Karl Sanderson, co-owner and creative director of Equator James Jefferson and Gellan Watt of Thinking Juice.

Last year McCann Erickson was the big winner taking home both the Grand Prix and Chairman’s Award and Cogent Elliott, Big Communications and Bray Leino were amongst the Gold prize winners.

If you think you have what it takes to impress this year’s esteemed panel - and take on last year’s winners - entries are open until 8 August, with the winners to be announced on Wednesday 12 November at Birmingham’s Jam House.
