Knowing how Cannes Lions can inspire equal parts creativity and envy, the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A’s) has delayed its deadline for its Jay Chiat Awards  for excellence in strategic thinking in marketing and advertising until after Independence Day, and this year adds a category: “Media Strategy.”

4A’s celebrates its 19th year of the awards named for the father of the agency that still inspires us to “Think Different.” But the awards are just part of the industry’s Oct. 4-6 “StratFest” in NYC. This year’s Festival features top strategic minds: Cummins&Partners Adam Ferrier @adamferrier, Sparks & Honey’s Sara DaVanzo @culturecartog, VisionEdge Marketing’s Laura Patterson @LauraVEM, 360i’s Lee Maicon @leemaicon, Co: Collective’s Tom Morton @tommorton, StraightUp’s Emma Cookson, Contently’s Shane Snow @shanesnow, SapientNitro’s Darren McColl, and Consigliere Brand Capital’s Brent Vartan @brentvartan, plus academics, researchers, marketers and authors that raise the bar for everyone.
