The adobo Talks x The Gerety Awards 2022 Grand Jury Insights goes live on September 29

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The Gerety Awards, the only creative prize to reward advertising campaigns that resonate among female audiences, has recently announced this year’s set of winners, including five Grand Prix accolades.

Since its creation, Gerety has included hundreds of creative leaders on its juries held around the world. This year is no different with a new jury that includes 180 judges of some of the most respected leaders from 35 different countries. The past winners have often reflected that of other major award shows, with one important difference – being a Gerety winner is also proof that the work resonates with women around the world.

Happening on September 29, 4:30 pm PHT, adobo Magazine is hosting the free-to-attend adobo Talks x Gerety Awards 2022 Grand Jury Insights panel that gives a unique look into The Gerety Awards judging process and the 2022 winners. In this virtual roundtable discussion, select jury members from Asia-Pacific will discuss their favorite works and trends from this year’s Gerety.


With judging sessions annually held around the world, The Gerety Awards brings together some of the greatest creative leaders to look at work from the female lens. The adobo Talks x Gerety Awards 2022 Grand Jury Insights panel will be moderated by Angel Guerrero, the founder, president, and editor in chief of adobo Magazine.
