This year's shots Awards The Americas has extended its entry deadline by two weeks, making the final deadline for entries to reach us Friday February 24.

Now in its fourth year, shots Awards The Americas continues to spotlight the very best creative work from across North and South America, as well as showcasing some of the most successful companies and talented individuals in the industry.

The Americas is part of a global awards programme which includes shots Awards EMEA and shots Awards Asia Pacific, with the quality of entries submitted to all three awards incredibly high. 

It's for this reason that the awards has an expert judging panel comprised of renowned international creatives from across the industry for each event. This collection of industry luminaries pores over each entry to seek out the very finest work and make those crucial decisions about what goes on to receive a coveted shots Award trophy. 

Below is this the collection of jury heads for this year's Americas awards, who will be overseeing the different categories, while by clicking here, you can see all of the judges who will be aiding in that decision-making process.
