An impressive collective of top creative and industry figureheads have joined the judging panel for Ocean Outdoor’s Art of Outdoor digital competition which has announced an extended closing date of September 14.

The 10 expert judges are Steve Parker, Managing Director of Starcom Mediavest; Roy Jeans, Chief Executive of rapport; Glen Wilson, Managing Director of Posterscope; Pavlos Themistocleous, Head of Digital Creative at OgilvyOne; and Craig Morgan, Innovation Director at Grey London, which was one of last year’s winners.

Andy Fowler, Executive Creative Director of Brothers and Sisters; digital commentator Adrian Cotterill, Editor of the out of home industry bible Daily DOOH; Carolyn Nugent, Head of Digital, UK, Kinetic; Rich Sutcliffe, Digital Development Director at Brand Republic; and Ocean Outdoor CEO Tim Bleakley complete the line-up.

The 2012 competition, staged in association with Brand Republic, is challenging the UK’s creative community to produce the most innovative digital outdoor advertising, including full motion, subtle motion and interactivity.

Ocean Marketing Director Richard Malton said: “The collective knowledge of our expert jury spans every area of the advertising business and allows for a balanced and reasoned critique for each and every entry.”

Along with the chance to have their work viewed by these leading industry specialists, creatives have the opportunity to win a share of a £250,000 prize fund and their entries showcased across four of Ocean’s most iconic digital locations – Eat Street @ Westfield, Holland Park Roundabout, Two Towers East and Two Towers West.

The top 10 entries will be judged by the panel and the winners announced at a breakfast awards ceremony to be held at the IMAX cinema on Thursday, October 11.

The competition deadline has been extended by two weeks to September 14. To enter, visit
