Adfest 2018: Facebook’s Kitty Lun to helm Interactive & Mobile Lotus Jury
Adfest has appointed Kitty Lun, Head of Creative Shop for Facebook, Greater China, as its next Jury President overseeing the Interactive Lotus and Mobile Lotus Jury at Adfest 2018.
“I am happy and honoured to accept the invitation. Adfest is a festival that supports creative talent in our region and encourages innovation. I am looking forward to seeing the best interactive ideas being produced,” said Lun, whose career began at Leo Burnett in Hong Kong as a copywriter, quickly climbing the ranks to become a Creative Director eight years later.
Prior to joining Facebook, Lun was Chairman and CEO of Lowe Worldwide China, based in Shanghai, a role she took after joining Euro RSCG Partnership Hong Kong as Managing Director and Chief Creative Officer in 1997.
Lun has been fascinated by digital trends since 2000, when she joined miclub.com, an Asian women’s portal, as Chief Executive Officer. Having worked for many top agencies around Asia, she is now based in Hong Kong, working with agencies to implement eye-catching Facebook campaigns across Greater China.
Jimmy Lam, President of Adfest, said, “Kitty is a formidable creative force to be reckoned with, and her experience at Facebook over the past two years makes her the ideal person to lead our Interactive and Mobile Lotus jury at Adfest 2018.”
Entries are now open to the 2018 Adfest Lotus Awards. The entry deadline for categories judged remotely is Friday, January 12, 2018, while the deadline for all other categories is Friday, January 19, 2018.
Adfest runs from March 21-24, 2018 at the Peach Royal Cliff Hotels Group, Pattaya, Thailand.
