Three women from the Middle East & Africa (MEA) region joins global brand leaders from Philips, Heineken and PepsiCo on next year’s Gerety awards jury—namely Maya Karanouh, CEO/Co-Founder, Tagbrands, Lebanon, Rana Hamarneh, Group Executive Director & Partner, AdPro, Jordan, and Ghada Wali, Creative and Co-Founder, Wali Studio, Egypt.

“We could not be prouder of the jury of personalities from around the world that will be choosing the 2023 winners” explained Co-Founder Lucía Ongay. “Next year we celebrate the 5th year of the Gerety Awards and just like in previous editions, our jury includes some of the advertising and marketing industries most respected and awarded leaders.”

Once again Gerety will be holding in-person jury sessions in 10 different cities; the locations and judges for the executive jury will be announced in the new year. Entries are judged on the originality of the creative ideas and the quality of their executions and all types of advertising campaigns can be entered.

As well as defining the shortlist, the executive jury sessions each select the agency and production company of the year from their country. This is chosen from the entrants of the Portfolio Cut.

The 2023 Gerety Awards will open for entries and announce the full jury in January.

Named for Frances Gerety, the copywriter who in 1948 coined the slogan "A diamond is forever”, The Gerety Awards brings together a jury to select the best in advertising that resonates most with a female audience, creating a benchmark that is relevant to the market reality, all while redefining the standard to which advertising has traditionally been held.
