The jury will convene Oct. 14-18 in Los Angeles to review and evaluate the international submissions that "pushed the envelope, established new precedent and introduced audiences to entertainment in new and innovative ways this cycle."
"There are few things that have as big of an impact on popular culture as the entertainment industry," Clio president Nicole Purcell said. "The members of this year's Clio Entertainment jury have influenced the way audiences learn about and experience the most visceral forms of entertainment and by determining this year's trophy winners, they'll be sending a message about what the future of the industry should look like."
Added Benson, head of marketing at Amazon Studios: "It's an exciting time for creative marketers in the entertainment industry.
