"Being selected as Jury Chair for the prestigious 2013 One Show Interactive and leading the panel of judges with some of the most talented professionals in the industry is a great honor," said Geiger. "I can't wait to view, be surprised by, and then discuss all of the creative, innovative and thought-provoking submissions with my esteemed colleagues as we select 2013's best in digital media advertising from across the globe."
Geiger, who joined JWT North America in 2012, is charged with bringing the agency's creative vision to life.

"Continuing with the One Show Interactive quarterly entry deadlines established in 2008, entries for the 2013 awards competition will be accepted starting June 1, 2012, for work created after January 29th of this year," said Kevin Swanepoel, president and interim CEO at The One Club. "Not only does entering work quarterly allocate more time for judges to review and discuss the work in smaller groups throughout the year, it enables the work to be judged while it's fresh and enjoying buzz in the marketplace. The quarterly submissions also offer agencies who are 'first to market' with groundbreaking technology to be first in the judging process, well before similar works are created and entered."
