about the jury

Saskia Kok is an Executive Producer at Bonkers United, the Amsterdam-based production house that she founded with director Matthijs van Hejiningen Jr., back in 1999. While she managed Matthijs’s career to international acclaim with 75’s Emmanuel Guiraud in France and MJZ’s David Zander in the UK/US, she simultaneously shaped Bonkers United into a globally renowned production company.

Before advertising, Saskia wanted to be an artist or actor, which didn’t happen. Supporting others to be their best was the obvious reason why. It led her to build a company that fosters talent and celebrates exceptional storytelling. Her passionate eye (and ear) for creative brilliance and commitment to quality and innovation has earned the company numerous accolades and cemented its position in the industry.

Saskia’s been around the world, but home is Amsterdam (the city that’s cultivating a diverse and inclusive environment, encouraging creativity to flourish YAY).
