Winners of The Kyoorius Awards

Kicking off the first edition of Kyoorius Awards, winners for various categories in Design and Communication were announced on Friday, August 30, at the 9th annual Kyoorius Designyatra held in Goa. The awards were held in partnership with D&AD and the International Advertising Association (India Chapter) and sponsored by ZEE.

Spanning over nine categories including print, packaging, digital, retail and design for good, Kyoorius Awards recognised the frontrunners in each of these streams. Over two hectic days in Delhi, the judges held intense discussions to pick out the nominees and then the winners. These winners were chosen by an esteemed jury comprising Elsie Nanji, Gabor Schreier, Jeremy Leslie, Simon Sankarayya, Tanya Singh Khosla, Ton Van Bragt and jury manager, Donal Keenan.

Based on real briefs by real clients, a special section of the awards was dedicated to the works of students as well. Five groups of students were chosen as winners based on their work across six categories. The winning student entries earned a cash prize of Rs 50,000, one free student pass to the 2014 Kyoorius Designyatra, a Wacom Bamboo tablet along with being featured in the annual awards showcase book.

Rajesh Kejriwal, Founder CEO, Kyoorius, said, “We had conceptualised this with the aim of being able to recognise exceptional work in the design industry. It was exhilarating to witness Kyoorius Awards take shape, thanks to our esteemed partners D&AD, IAA (India Chapter) and our sponsors ZEE, who came on board to support this initiative.”

The D&AD Yellow Pencil is recognised the world over as the most prestigious amongst

creative awards. Tim Lindsay, CEO of D&AD, said, “With past experience in the arena of awarding excellent work in the creative stream, we were privileged to support Kyoorius’ efforts in the design industry. Kyoorius Awards were conducted on a par with international standards and the delegates and industry peers received an opportunity to view some excellent work done by the winners.”

Kaushik Roy, Immediate Past President, IAA India Chapter, said, “With the unprecedented response for the first instalment of Kyoorius awards, we are certain that there is a long association in store between Kyoorius, D&AD and IAA- India Chapter. Together, we have the vision to realize the power of design and it is crucial that we support and award the best creative minds in India.”
