A diverse selection of jurors, featuring a mix of creatives, designers, marketers, business people, entrepreneurs, journalists and thought leaders, will be looking to award D&AD Pencils based on three criteria: an original and innovative idea at its core, clear and measurable impact in its chosen category area and relevance to the business's commercial needs.
The 2016 Impact Awards Jury included leaders from Buzzfeed to Squarespace, from The Girl Scouts of America, to P&G, from Post Secret to R/GA. In store for 2017 will be a comparable breadth of Jury Presidents and Judges indicative of the campaign Impact aims to create, crossing all industries and meeting in the middle where they have a set of shared beliefs: belief in the need for businesses to have purpose beyond profit; belief in the power of creativity to create change and be a force for good; belief in the crucial role of brands and business in creating a better, fairer more sustainable world.
Jamie Oliver is a global phenomenon in food and campaigning. Over a 17-year television and publishing career, he has inspired millions of people to enjoy cooking from scratch and eating fresh, delicious food. His charity, the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, is leading the charge on a global, ongoing Food Revolution, aimed at improving everyone’s health and happiness through food.
Jamie started cooking at his parents’ pub, the Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight. After leaving school he began a career as a chef that took him to the River Cafe, where he was famously spotted by a television production company and the Naked Chef was born.
In 2001 Jamie left the Naked Chef behind when he set up the first of his Fifteen restaurants in London, then Cornwall and Amsterdam, which was the start of a 15-year journey training disengaged young people for careers in the catering industry. A few years later, he led the call for a change in the quality of school dinners in the UK, resulting in huge changes to the school food system. His Food Foundation works in the UK and abroad to deliver food education programmes at primary, secondary and university level, and to the communities most in need through Jamie’s Ministry of Food centres. Jamie’s national and international campaigns work to revolutionize the way people feed themselves and their families. Every year on Food Revolution Day, the Foundation celebrates successes, and shouts about what needs to improve in the food industry and beyond, in order to galvanize governments and industry to help drive positive change in food education and public health.
Jamie’s successful restaurants include Barbecoa and the Jamie’s Italian collection of restaurants both across the UK and internationally. His wide range of food and non-food products are popular throughout the world.
As well as writing regularly for Jamiemagazine, Jamie connects with audiences across multiple digital platforms, creating and appearing in exclusive content for jamieoliver.com, the Jamie Oliver Food Tube network on YouTube and a variety of growing social platforms. He has now published 17 bestselling cookery books, all with accompanying TV shows. Jamie lives in London and Essex with his wife Jools and their children.
