Dubai Lynx changes name to "International Festival of Creativity"

Plus Dates Confirmed As: 10-13 March - Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai

(lifePR) (London, ) The organisers of Dubai Lynx have today announced that its name will change from 'International Advertising Festival' to 'International Festival of Creativity'. The move serves to better reflect the evolvement of the industry from one that has previously focused on traditional creative advertising to one that involves creativity in all forms of communications.

The Dubai International Festival of Creativity is the leading awards and festival for creative excellence in advertising and communications in the Middle East and North Africa and the must-attend event on the region's industry calendar. Since its launch in 2007, the number of entry categories at Dubai Lynx has more than doubled due to creativity stretching across a greater number of forms of communications. Held at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, next year's event will take place 10-13 March 2013, and will once again include an unbeatable line-up of international jurors who will use their expertise to award the best in creativity.

Emma Lancaster, Festival Director of Dubai Lynx, says about the change, "Entering their 7th year, the Dubai Lynx awards are established as the must win awards for the MENA industry. As organisers, we always strive to keep pace and what is clear is that creativity crosses a great number of platforms, from social media to technologies to user-generated content, meaning that to term the event as an advertising festival is no longer relevant."

The brand new 2013 Dubai Lynx website will be live from 13 October and will contain up-to-date information on the event including full details of how to register and enter. Held in association with the IAA - UAE Chapter and supported by Dubai Media City, the festival's full programme will be released early 2013.

Key 2013 dates are as follows:
Delegate Registration Opens: 18 November 2012
Entries Open: 9 December 2012
Entry Deadline: 7 February 2013
Dubai Festival of Creativity: 10-12 March 2013
Dubai Lynx Awards: 13 March 2013
