Why I am judging the awards... "“Pulling off an effective B2B marketing campaign is no easy feat yet over the past 25 years of working across Getty Images and iStock, some of the most innovative, and engaging, campaigns I’ve witnessed have come out of this sector. I’m looking forward to seeing how agencies have tackled the challenge to develop concise, creative storytelling which offers a unique perspective on the business.”
