Preliminary Jury


The Cresta Awards are judged in two-stages by top creatives. All entries are screened by a number of international pre-selection juries - our Preliminary Jury Members. This pre-selection process results in a short-list of finalists that is then submitted to our International Grand Jury of expert creative directors, film specialists, interactive professionals and graphic artists for final evaluation.  All Cresta jury sessions contain no discussions, no politics and this results an emphasis being put solely on creativity.
