The organising committee has informed that there will be only one Media Abby Grand Prix Award across all categories i.e. 1 to 14. This will go to the best amongst all Gold Winners. The Grand Prix is awarded to an entry that is a Gold winner in a particular category. As is followed internationally, on the event day, only the Grand Prix will be awarded for the said entry. In the metal tally for the awards, only the winning Grand Prix will be accounted for, and exclude the Gold won for that entry.

The awards ceremony is scheduled to be a part of Goafest 2015 that is scheduled from April 9 to 11, 2015 at the Grand Hyatt, Bambolim.

Goafest 2015 will be in its tenth edition and this is the eighth year that AAAI and The Advertising Club will come together to deliver ABBYs.
