Commenting on judging the Use of Data category, jury member Luke Brown, CEO and co-owner of Affinity says: "Data is finally making its move from being a gimmicky buzz-word and being commercially applied in more and more interesting ways. I'll be looking for entries that demonstrate a genuine need to utilise data in unique ways, but importantly that the application makes a genuine and measurable difference to the brand and bottom line."
