10 Agency Artists create individual artworks

10 Agency Artists create individual artworks to celebrate AdFest’s 10th Anniversary.

Delegates to bid for pictures to raise money for charity.

As part of the celebrations for AdFest’s 10th anniversary, the AdFest Working Committee has invited ten agency artists to produce a visual interpretation of ‘Turning 10’.

Says Jimmy Lam, President of the AdFest Working Committee, “There is a huge amount of creative talent in agencies around Asia Pacific. We wanted to give them a different way of showing off their skills.”

The ‘Turning 10’ project has created a remarkable exhibition of ten very different pieces of artwork that are displayed in the front foyer on the ground floor of PEACH. The artists involved are Burin Puntuyakorn, Art Director, Euro RSCG FLAGSHIP (Bangkok); Cid Reyes, Vice President, Ace Saatchi & Saatchi (Manila); Ipang Thebangsad, Art Director, Dentsu Indonesia (Jakarta); John Kane, Art Director, I am Kane (Sydney); Sung Wook Han, Creative Group Art Director, Chiel Communications (Seoul); Tan Kee Hong, Senior Visualiser, BBDO Singapore (Singapore); Uday Parkar, National Creative Director, Adfactors Advertising (Mumbai); Xiaoping Zhang, Founder, Chia Black Horse Advertising (Guangzhou); Tan Yee Kiang, Art Director, Naga DDB (Kuala Lumpur); Yoichi Komatsu, Creative Director/Art Director,

A silent auction is being held during AdFest to raise money for Unicef Children’s Charity. AdFest delegates will be able to bid secretly for their favourite artwork. The highest bidder will then take the artwork home with them.

The 10 th Asia Pacific Advertising Festival 2007 is held from March 14-17 2007. The event takes place at its permanent home, the Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall (PEACH), Royal Cliff Beach Resort Hotel in Pattaya, Thailand.
