“Welcome to #EffieThinking” will take place on the 28th of February, starting 10 a.m., at IAA Romania (Calea Victoriei, 126A). This meeting speaks to all juniors coming from strategy departments and also to marketing specialists who are in search of a better understanding regarding their submission in the Effie competition.They will find out which are the categories and news of 2019, learn how to write a relevant Effie Case not only in order to fit in the category, but also to align to judges’ requirements and the whole international scoring system.

The hosts of the event will be Victor Stroe – President of Romanian Effie Awards Committee 2019 & Head of Strategy and Associate Director | Leo Burnett Bucharest, Stefan Chiritescu – Head of Strategy | Kubis Interactive and Madalina Mitru – Marketing Manager | Strauss Romania. These speakers will present all important aspects regarding the 2019 submission for the competition along with last year’s conclusions.

This meeting is organized in order to come closer to the festival’s mission – it highlights the learning component by making more helpful instruments accessible to agencies and it also wants to contribute to a better understanding for them regarding the judging process and the scoring system for each category in particular.


The event features free access, but participation requires a confirmation mail sent to teodora.calin@institute.ro. The confirmation mail must be sent no later than February 27th.
