“Effie Romania is getting stronger and better defined. It is the business-oriented marketing industry event with a focus on education,” Tyszkiewicz said. “I was honored to take part in the first Effie Romania Gala that presented substantial changes: new entry forms, updated rules of evaluating cases and most importantly, a new type of interaction between jury members – a robust and moderated discussion component of judging. Maintaining and developing such standards will bring Effie Romania more effective campaigns in the future, because the discussions we have will promote the sharing of opinions between practitioners, and will create a strong, ambitious, and competitive marketing industry.”
