Park Wannasiri, Chief Creative Officer of Wunderman Thompson Thailand, said: “Judging at Adman is obviously different from that of international competitions. All the judges know exactly whether an entry is effective in real life or if it clicks with Thai people. At an overseas competition, the judges may see the very same campaign and can judge it based solely on what the entry is because they would not be able to see how effective that ad is in real-life context.
“I would like to point out that creative works from Thailand are fun and diverse. All agencies have their own uniqueness and many of their works are touching. At Wunderman Thompson, one of our strengths is our diverse approaches to clients’ pain points. We have talent from all different expertise come together, and make the impossible possible. Our winning works at this year’s event resulted from this multi-team collaboration across the agency. They are grounded on actual pain points of our clients combined with our passion to strive for the best, most impactful results. We strive to create works that we will want to talk about, works that moves the industry, and works that others will use as references. Work hard, play hard, and stay humble. That is the description of #YoungJ.”
Parattajariya Jalayanateja, Managing Director of Wunderman Thompson Thailand, said: “Every entry submitted is a result of our joint efforts to take on business challenges faced by our clients and various industries over the past year. We were doing real work, based on real briefs, and to drive real business results. I am delighted and proud with the entire team of Wunderman Thompson as everyone have worked so hard and so passionately throughout the year. Most importantly, we would like to thank our clients who trust in our agency and are more than ready to go along with us in every step. For next year, we promise we will never stop and to stimulate our industry to a new level of fun and intensity.”
