BANGKOK – 11 January 2013: ADFEST is pleased to announce that Ronald Ng – the Chief Creative Officer behind some of Asia’s most-awarded print advertising campaigns – is joining ADFEST 2013 as Jury President of Press Lotus.
Originally training as a copywriter, Ng has more than 20 years advertising experience including eight years at BBDO in Malaysia, New York and Singapore.
“I am absolutely honored to be given the opportunity to head the ADFEST Press Lotus jury. Though Asia is brilliant in all disciplines today, Press remains a forte of this region. This is testimony to the level of ideation and craft that this region is truly blessed with,” says Ng, Chief Creative Officer at BBDO/Proximity Singapore.

“ADFEST is a true celebration of Asian creativity. It’s a prestigious platform of the best ideas from this region, which also eventually go on to conquer award shows around the world. The privilege to have a first peek into the next big thing from Asia, and for the year, makes ADFEST the amazing showcase that it is,” says Ng,
