【Creative Data and Innovation Category Judge】Yuichiro Horie,  TBWA\HAKUHODO Head of Planning
<Comment> Issues and events that were previously thought of as independent and separate are now connected by the glue of data, creating new experiences. I believe “Creative Data and Innovation” is the category where the pioneers of such changes and trends of the times gather, which makes me excited. Through conversations with the diverse panel of judges, I hope we could deepen our understanding on the nature of innovation that will open up an increasingly complex world.
