about the jury

Richard Packer began his career at CDP in the post room, gradually working his way up to the position of TV producer.

He then moved to BBH, where he contributed to notable campaigns, including award winning work for Lynx. During this time, he discovered a passion for working with emerging creative talent.

His journey continued at HHCL, where he served as Head of TV. It was here he learnt how to look at things differently – consistently pushing boundaries, finding unique angles to bring innovative work to life, and winning Agency of the Decade.

He went on to co-found INDEPENDENT Films with Jani Guest, winning multiple accolades at all major advertising awards, with campaigns including NikeSkoda, and VW.

Fourteen years ago, he was invited by Robert Campbell to join Outsider as Managing Partner, continuing to win awards internationally, and in recent years winning Production Company of the Year at the British Arrows.
