Meet the Judges

 

Steve Feinberg,
Chief Creative Officer, Seiden

Steve Feinberg majored in philosophy and wrote poetry, thus propelling himself into a career in advertising. He’s been at it an alarmingly long time, allowing him to “hone his skills,” which his colleagues take to mean outrunning obsolescence. Steve has won the requisite number of industry awards for someone with his title but he is still childishly thrilled when he sees his work out in the world. His film for NewYork-Presbyterian, “Unmasking a Killer,” was one of 2016’s most awarded Healthcare campaigns, winning at the Clios, AICP, Globals and Brand Film Festival.

That, some nearby trout streams, and his wife and 3 daughters are enough to keep him happy.

 

Asia Giles
VP, Creative Director, Prudential

With her work hanging on the walls of the Art Director’s Club even before graduating SVA, Asia began her career creating TV and Print for Pantene. After championing Pantene to #1 in hair care. Not one to rest on her laurels, she moved to San Francisco, where her advertising and her geeky side could finally come together. Asia learned the ropes of all things interactive at Yahoo! Yodeling while winning accolades for campaigns that tried to break the internet.

She moved back to NYC, creating digital campaigns for Panasonic, Neutrogena, L’Oreal, Hampton Inn, Kiva, Kiehls, Vichy, Clorox GreenWorks, Ford and Keds. Asia looked ahead and dove deeply into the unchartered territories of Social where she helped grow and shape Mr Youth (now MRY) into one of the top 5 Social Agencies in NYC.

With all modes of advertising under her belt, she’s fearlessly pushed on to take her talents in-house. Mentoring a creative team and crafting memorable content and branding for Prudential, which just won in-house agency of the year award for 2016.

Awards: Mashies, Webbys, TechCrunch Top Sites, Art Directors Club, Purple Cow, Effies, FCS, Financial Marketer of 2016

Brian Flatow
Chief Miner, Girardville Miners’ Cooperative

Brian is the founder and Chief Miner of Girardville Miners’ Cooperative where he helps brands define their voice, build affinity and win.

He has a track record of leadership, building strong partnerships and creating teams of cross-discipline talent to execute powerful strategic platforms and integrated creative solutions.

As an original member of The Ad Store, New York, and its former President, Brian filled many roles, including creative director/copywriter, brand planner, account manager, producer and, at times, “outsourced CMO.”

Brian has had particular success helping relatively unknown brands become not just famous but iconic. His work with JetBlue produced breakthrough creative that allowed the start-up airline to compete against bigger budgets and cultivate an almost cult-like following. For Zappos.com he captured the voice of a unique culture and introduced the brand to new customers by developing an ownable umbrella platform and portfolio messaging that were delivered through multiple media channels. And his work on the first-ever Super Bowl spot for GoDaddy.com propelled the brand to become the number one domain name registrar overnight.
