about the jury
Götz Ulmer started his career in 1995 as a Junior Art Director at Jung von Matt. And remained there – boringly enough – for 25 years before accepting the challenge in 2021 to leave his comfort zone (instead of always preaching it) and tipping the toe as CCO of McCann Erickson Workgroup Germany into network waters. In 2023, he decided to put passion and attitude at the centre again and joined Germany’s creative hotshop David+Martin. Götz never-ending desire for fresh and brave solutions for clients like eBay, Vodafone, Audi, BMW, Philharmonic Orchestra of Hamburg, MINI, Mercedes, Nintendo, Unicredit has been honored with numerous Grand Prix and Gold awards at every major international festival and he judged most of them: Cannes, OneShow, D&AD, New York Festivals, Clio, Loerries, ADCEurope, etc. He earned 3 gold and 3 platinum rewards not for his drumming in a heavy metal band, but for 5 No.1 songs in Germany with Vodafone commercials. Till today he has no clue how he could accomplish that.
