McKinney NY Group Creative Director Alex Shulhafer will serve as jury ambassador for the 2020 Gerety Awards. Shulhafer will lead the executive judging session to be held in New York. Other judging sessions will be held in London, Helsinki, Berlin, Johannesburg, Istanbul, Melbourne, Madrid, Buenos Aires, and Bangkok.

The Gerety Awards, named for Frances Gerety — the copywriter who coined the slogan, “A diamond is forever” — recognize global talent, mentors, and allies within advertising and support initiatives that champion diversity in the creative industries.

“Any show that spotlights talent and supports diversity in our industry is welcome at McKinney NY,” said Shulhafer. “Our leadership team here is 100 percent female, so the executive jury will feel right at home.”

Call for entries for the Gerety Awards open January 1, 2020, with a shortlist announcement in June.
