For the First Time, Jury Achieves Historic 50-50 Gender Benchmark, As Set By 2013 Initiative

NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The CLIO Awards, esteemed international advertising, design and communications competition, opens the field for entries for its 2014 awards show, taking place in New York City on October 1, 2014. Agencies from across the global creative landscape are invited to submit their best work from the past year, in eighteen media types, for review and selection by a panel of esteemed CLIO jurors. The period for entries lasts through April 11.

In addition, there is an even broader diversity of international talent, with 75 percent of the jury representing countries such as Colombia, Lebanon, Israel, Philippines, Belgium, South Africa, Peru and Serbia. The judging will take place in Malta this summer.
