    “Usually, our Final Judges meet in Busan to vote on this year’s winners but unfortunately, this year, they will have to meet virtually instead,” said Hwan Jin Choi, Chair of the AD STARS Executive Committee. “We know that they will do a wonderful job because we have invited some of the world’s most influential and inspiring creatives to represent their markets on our 2020 jury. I would like to personally thank all of our preliminary, final and executive judges this year – without your support, the AD STARS 2020 Awards would not be possible.”
