Press Awards are unique for KIAF's winners for some reasons. First of all, by form - all Gold winners of the Kiev International Advertising Festival will get the plate with fish, but only Press winners traditionally expect on Festival pan. Second, by quantity - Press Jury awards only two best entries - best TV and best print in category, so annually only two pans issued by KIAF's Jury.
This year, first time the Festival's history, jury will be headed by Belarus representative, Sergey Skorokhod, chief editor at Marketing.by. This online project is probably the main information resource for the Belarusian advertising community.
