"There are way too many award shows and way too many without a clear purpose. The A-List is the rare exception, It rewards the brands - and agencies - that are behaving in the most creative and engaging ways. Now that's refreshing."
Matt Eastwood | Worldwide Chief Creative Officer | JWT | New York
"The best brands understand their role is not just to sell, but to entertain and engage. The more we can do to encourage a wider understanding of this the better it will be for the entire industry. So, I’m thrilled to be able to help select the best demonstrations of this understanding at the A-List Hollywood Awards."
Eric Schoeffler | Chief Creative Officer | DDB Group Germany
"Our industry has always been about telling great stories. With all what‘s going on today, we shouldn’t be scared. We can now make use of all the new fantastic opportunities to tell our best stories in a deeper, more compelling or more engaging way. Could there be a better place to celebrate great storytelling than the hometown of entertainment?“
Mark Cibort | President, Digital | Trailer Park | Hollywood
"In our business, great stories connect brands to their fans, giving them an experience they want and when done effectively, actively seek. I’m glad that the A-List Hollywood Awards celebrates our industry’s commitment to great storytelling in the most appropriate place – the heart of the entertainment."
Andreas Ullenius | ECD / Senior Partner | Akestam Holst | Stockholm
"I’m jealous about all advertising that people seem to actually choose to watch, use or in other ways engage with. I’m also very inspired by it, and I’m looking forward to help The A-List, award brands and agencies that have succeed in doing this."
Rob Feakins | Chief Creative Officer/President | Publicis Kaplan Thaler | New York
"Quite simply brands today have to be entertaining. Consumers want them and expect them to be unexpected, surprising, inspirational or funny. And the competition is fierce: they’re in social feeds and up against your friends, Upworthy and Mashable. I’m looking forward to seeing which brands make content that you can’t resist."
| Creative Founder | BMF | Sydney
"All brands today face the daunting challenge of being seen, heard and loved. Daunting because everyone is raising the bar creatively, and it's not just those employed to do so, anyone with a phone has the ability to intrigue, entertain and inform. We're awash with content and how a brand can be 'sticky' and find relevance in this world requires some extraordinary insights and creativity. That's why I'm looking forward to the A-List Hollywood Awards."

“The A-List celebrates advertising’s highest call: to create stories across platforms that are measured not just against other advertising, but against all forms of entertainment. And to become a part of culture in order to have a deep and lasting effect on brands."
Tom Eslinger | Worldwide Digital Creative Director | Saatchi & Saatchi | New York
"The A-List Awards makes advertising and the people that create it work very hard to earn these awards – the criteria, categories and requirements make this show unique and I’m looking forward to being inspired and humbled by collisions of advertising, entertainment and "holy sh*t!” ideas."
