Advertising Week is thrilled to announce the first reveal of judges for the AWAfrica Future is Female Awards. For every region, Advertising Week selects a group of women to lead the efforts of selecting our shortlist of nominees.
For our inaugural event at AWAfrica, our pool of judges is comprised of former winners, past AW judges as well as some newcomers we’re adding to the AW family. These trailblazers will help us crown the winners.
Our 20 hand-picked judges come from a colourful scape of experience and backgrounds and represent the core values of the Awards. Get to know the women who have the honour of selecting this year’s shortlist.
