The organizers of the festival have announced that they are adding a special tribute to honour Yasmin Ahmad, who tragically passed away in July at the age of 51 after suffering a stroke. Yasmin Ahmad was Executive Creative Director of Leo Burnett Malaysia as well as a renowned director and scriptwriter who used her talent to produce multi-award winning feature films such as GubraSepet and Mukhsin.

Festival Chairman Terry Savage says, “Yasmin Ahmad made a real contribution to Asian creativity. It is therefore entirely appropriate that we pay tribute to her life and work at an awards ceremony that is celebrating creativity.”

cassies Award Show Bedlam! Eurobest, Spikes, Clios, Golden Drum, CASSIES newsAnd while many award shows have been reporting doom and gloom in regards to their entry levels in the midst of the global economic downturn, here in Canada the CASSIES  — the award show that Canuck clients love, as it rewards effectiveness as much as creativity  — have announced a record number of entries this year, including twelve major entries in a very appropriate new category: Success Despite the Recession.

“We believed when we launched the new category for success despite the recession that there were probably some great examples of how companies have weathered the storm and emerged ready to take advantage of better times. We had hoped to inspire some case entries and are really pleased to have received such a good response,” says David Leonard, Chair of this year’s CASSIES and President of DDB Canada.

“We think it also bodes well that so many more companies and their agencies have submitted their business cases to the CASSIES this year,” says Leonard. “We can’t wait to learn more about how they have excelled and proven their business effectiveness.”

Judging takes place on September 21st-22nd, and the actual gala happens on January 28th, 2010.
