Why I am judging the awards this year... In an age of “short attention span” where advertising becomes almost incidental, capturing consumer eyeballs and interest is now harder for marketers. To be part of The Drum’s Digital Advertising Awards is a great opportunity for me to see the work from the region’s best creative talents and celebrate the diversity of ideas and approach in winning consumer attention. ZALORA has always championed creativity and innovation and we are happy to take part in recognizing excellent advertising work from the region."
