Matt Eastwood, Global CCO of McCann Health is New York Festivals Inaugural Executive Jury President

“It is an incredible honor to be asked to be the first ever Jury President of the prestigious New York Festivals,” said Eastwood. “As the Jury President I want to encourage the judges to award work that not only actively engages consumers but also achieves results. But my hope is to go even further than that. Bill Bernbach once said, ‘All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society. We can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level.’ We’ll be looking for work that works. But, more importantly, we’ll be looking for work that lifts creativity and, indeed, society to a higher plane.”
