Sainsbury’s former packaging head Kate Blandford, Michael Walton, head of trading at London’s Transport Museum, and David Delaney of banking group HSBC will be among the judges for the 2009 Benchmarks awards for effective brand communications.
They will be joined by Circus founder Dilys Maltby, former Interbrand UK chief executive Rune Gustafson and Moving Brands co-founder Ben Wolstenholme, among others.
The panel of judges will be chaired by Design Week editor Lynda Relph-Knight.
The Benchmarks have broadened out this year to include a campaigns stream running alongside the existing awards for branding programmes. All entries will be judged by market sector, including fmcg, not-for-profit, automotive and public sector, and awards will be given for both campaigns and branding programmes in each sector.
