Dear Golden Drummers!

We are happy to invite you to join us this year in celebrating 20 years of Golden Drum festival!

First and foremost, we owe a great deal of gratitude to Jure Apih, Meta Dobnikar, Jiri Mikeš, Leszek Stafiej and Peter Nagy who understood a humble idea and turned it into one of the biggest creative / advertising festivals in Europe.

The following gratitude goes to you, Golden Drummer; together with many well-known and respected creative Legends, Stars, Movers & Shakers you have recognized Golden Drum Festival and took it as your own and ours.

Festival is once again setting the pace of creative competition. We hope the creation of ideas has been and still is as fun and challenging as it is rewarding. And one way to get recognition is to enter the festival’s competition and run for top awards. Whether your entries come from the biggest agency networks or boutique independent agencies, your creativity has equal opportunity to shine on Golden Drum’s main stage this year. No doubt, Golden Drum is the place where creativity really counts! Don’t hesitate and enter your works to compete for the most desired prizes this side of Europe.

»New Europe, New Thinking« will continue to guide us toward the creative, business and social thinking but it will also bring the World of creativity to New Europe and vice versa. More than ever, knowledge is important and key to success. Learning from success stories and successful people, as well as sharing such experience are those unique moments stimulating real, open conversations and dialogue. This will be the core of this year’s Festival’s program, along with themes and lectures which will give us a view from the outside.

As part of the 20th anniversary of the Golden Drum festival, we will reinforce the program to offer quality educational content with a special focus on the young professionals who are starting their careers in marketing communication.

The Festival is also about coming together to connect, meet your colleagues and make new friends, and forms a platform to get inspired and motivated.

We are getting ready! Are you?
