Suthisak Sucharittanonta Wins Prestigious Lotus Legend Award at AdFest 2017

Suthisak Sucharittanonta, Chief Creative Officer of BBDO Bangkok, has been awarded the prestigious Lotus Legend award at AdFest 2017. The award is one of the most coveted awards given at this event and recognizes outstanding individuals in their field.

For Suthisak the award is a well-deserved tip of the hat to a regional creative leader who has impacted, contributed to, and built a strong legacy in raising the standard of creative excellence across the region.

“I am very honored to be nominated for this award. I would like to thank AdFest, BBDO clients, my team at BBDO, production houses, and everyone in the industry who have supported me,” said Suthisak.

Suthisak was one of the founders of BBDO Bangkok. He joined BBDO Bangkok in June 1998 and in 2004 was elected into the Bangkok Art Directors’ Association Hall of Fame; that same year he ranked 8th in GUNN Report’s World’s Most Awarded Agency rankings.

Suthisak made history by receiving Thailand’s first Cannes TVC Gold Lion Award in 2003, among many other international accolades, and under his leadership, BBDO Bangkok’s creative award recognition has reached an all-time high. Most recently, BBDO Bangkok has been named Agency of the Year and Digital Agency of the Year at AdmanAwards 2016, while Suthisak was named Southeast Asia Creative of the Year 2016 by CampaignAsia.

The Lotus Legend has been given to top international creative figures such as Akira Kagami (2012) David Droga (2013) Yasmin Ahmad (2014) Neil French (2015) and Sheung Yan Lo (2016).

Creative leaders are nominated by AdFest juries, and the juries then vote for one contender who has achieved creative excellence while working in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as being a role model for junior creatives.
