Editor-in-Chief, Michael Weinzettl, picks the final selection of what makes the pages of the magazine. “I use the same criteria that are used by all of the ad festivals around the world, where creativity gets rewarded,” he says.
“Number one: originality of the idea. Number two: quality of the execution. When selecting, I don’t know who is responsible for the work unless it’s an agency with a famous account. I should also mention that agencies don’t pay a penny for their ads to be featured in the magazine!”
