The judging panel for this year's Awards will be headed up by chairman of judges Lord Davies of Abersoch, CBE (pictured) alongside convenor of judges Lorna Hawtin, head of planning, TBWA/Manchester and deputy convenor of judges Bridget Angear, joint chief strategy officer, AMV BBDO.
The 2014 Awards are sponsored by Thinkbox - overall sponsor and supported by Ipsos ASI; Newsworks; The Oval Group, Campaign and Warc, the official publisher of IPA case histories.
Says Lord Davies of Abersoch: "Creativity is key to a business's bottom-line, which is something that this year's haul of amazing entries truly exemplify. These fantastic stories from across the globe provide a veritable feast of fascinating insights and proof of ROMI which demonstrate the power of advertising in transforming a client's business. They are a must-read for anyone keen to boost their commercial success."
Says Hawtin: "The IPA Effectiveness Awards always bring forth some hugely powerful stories and this year's entries are no different. The rigour with which campaigns are evaluated obviously continues to improve across the industry and these Awards remains a showcase for the very best practice in this respect - not only in the UK, but increasingly abroad. Let's hope that interrogation at this level becomes the norm rather than the exception, as only then can our industry claim to be creative business partner, and not simply creative partner for business." 
Says Lindsey Clay, chief executive, Thinkbox, the overall Awards' sponsor: "These are the Awards to win. They get to the heart of what advertising is all about and they demand the highest standards of proof. Thinkbox is incredibly proud to have been sponsor for the last nine years."
