Fairfax, Va. (March 25, 2019) – The Culture Marketing Council: The Voice of Hispanic Marketing (CMC) in partnership with HispanicAd.com has announced the jury for the 2019 Culture Account Planning Excelencia (CAPE) awards, the only award of its kind that honors multicultural account planning, the strategic bedrock of any successful marketing campaign. Winners will showcase their campaigns during a special CAPE session at the CMC Annual Summit on Tuesday, June 11 at the Statler Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

“Planning and strategic insights are at the heart of every successful marketing campaign,” said CMC Chair Isaac Mizrahi, “but when you take those skills and add cultural fluency and expertise, you develop campaigns that truly resonate with mainstream America—together with HispanicAd.com, CMC cannot wait to see and showcase the work of the 2019 CAPE honorees.”.

Led by Jury President Victor Paredes, former head of strategy at WING, the judges for the 2019 CAPE Awards are:

• Ivan Calle - VP Executive Creative Director at Zubi (a WPP agency)

• Quim Gil Muñoz - Principal / Director of Brand Planning at Richards/Lerma

• Claudia Preston - Sr Cultural Strategist at The Community

• Dave Rodriguez - Multicultural Marketing Communications Ford and Lincoln

This year, there are four categories for submission: Best Cultural Insight, Mainstream Impact Driven by Cultural Insight, Culture Impact on Innovation, and Pro Bono. Judging will take place at Zubi Adverting headquarters in Miami in late May.

“The seed of culture must be planted from the very beginning, and the CAPE Awards showcase the gold standard of the powerful effect meaningful and inclusive planning can have on the campaigns of today,” said HispanicAd.com CEO Gene Bryan.
