ON YOUR MARKS TWO OF EUROPE’S top digital advertising practitioners will be judges at the first Bookmark awards for online advertising, presented by the Online Publishing Association. Dick Buschman (left) is founder of Achtung! of Holland, this year voted European Interactive Agency of the Year. He will also be speaking at Tony Koenderman’s Ad Brainstorm on 12 November, a conference on the theme “Winning ways”.
The other judge is Johan Tesch, the multiple award-winning creative director of BBD London. He first rose to prominence in Sweden, his homeland, where he and his brother set up what’s still regarded as one of the region’s best digital agencies.
