I was lucky enough to get myself on the D&AD Copy jury a few years ago.
It was all very gentlemanly, (and gentlewomanly of course, Barbara Noakes was on it.) And all Smoked Salmon Sandwiches, with Chablis as chilled as the judges.
Larry Barker was there too, and the unflappable Malcolm Duffy. (I forget who else. I'm getting on a bit, and can't be arsed going over to my bookshelf and finding the Annual in question. Late 90's sometime.)
Anyhow, I just saw this great shot (Flotograph?), of a judging session from Flo's blog, (he was doing website jury service this week.)
How times have changed. (Good to see the preponderance of Steve Jobsean black turtle necks too. But there aren't half as many 'ironic' Threadless T's as I'd been led to imagine those young digital folk wear.)
(You can click the shot to enlarge it. Oh, you know the drill.)
