This year's Assegai Integrated Marketing Awards will field the biggest ever complement of local and international judging talent.

From a total of 46 judges last year, the 2022 instalment of SA’s most anticipated annual Integrated and Direct Marketing awards (IDM) will feature 56 judges that include three top international judges.

The Direct Marketing Association of SA (DMASA) says the three top international IDM personalities heading the judging line-up are Ann-Sophie Sell, jury president and head of creative at Publicis Groupe Germany; Mattias Anderson, co-founder and partner at Miltton Insights (Agency of the Year 2021, 2022 and Best Employer 2022 as well as Top 30 in CRM in the World) and chairman of the jury; and Ryan McManus of VMLY&R, WPP, and Ford’s chief creative officer, North America.
