The jury to the cateogary was represented by Tony Granger, Global Chief Creative Officer, Y&R and Malvika Mehra, National Creative Director, Grey India. There were total 61 entries from India for Film Lions this year.

But for the final metals announcement, lips are sealed till Saturday, 25 June 2011.
