PARIS, FRANCE — The Gerety Awards returns to Cannes to celebrate the shortlist winners at the famous Diamond BBQ party with hosts Tantor Films and event partners Owned by Women, De Falcon, MSQ Partners, and The Gate. The event is an exclusive, invitation-only event that will be held on June 21. Past and present judges, 2022 entrants, and friends are all invited to RSVP here.
The Gerety Awards are named for Frances Gerety, the copywriter who in 1948 coined the slogan: “A diamond is forever.”
The Gerety Awards marks the first time that a jury has been brought together to select the best in advertising through the female lens, creating a benchmark that is relevant to the market reality, all while redefining the standard to which advertising has traditionally been held.
Tantor Films has for 20 years been a pioneer in unifying the talent, workforce, and diversity of the industry in Latin America, always providing efficient, top-level professionalism while also creating relationships based on equality and respect.
Executive Director of Tantorfilms, Ingrid Bragemann is also one of the founders of Owned by Women, a global coalition of women-owned companies operating in the advertising production industry, supporting and promoting them and championing women in all aspects of commercial production.
“This year, more than ever, we want to be together. After these complicated years we have gone through, with protocols, masks, limitations, and never-ending bureaucracy, we realized we are a film, ideas, and craft community that has pushed forward and succeeded. We are ready to keep backing us up, believing the future will always bring better things with more hope to live it together.”
Gerety Co-Founder Lucía Ongay said, “Tantor Films are one of the most respected production Service/Companies in the world, and Ingrid with the team at Owned by Women were pioneers in creating space for women in the production environment, just like Gerety has opened a space to bring the female vision of advertising to the spotlight. We are so thrilled to return to Cannes this year to celebrate the Gerety shortlist.”
