Rajesh Kejriwal, Founder-CEO of Kyoorius, remarked, âThis number has been very encouraging, and a sign of acceptance by the industry. Kyoorius thanks all agencies for their support. We look forward to a packed jury session next week as these entries battle it out for Blue and Black Elephants.â
Next week, all jury members for the Advertising & Digital Awards will gather in Mumbai to review, discuss and elect the best of the best over an intensive four-day session. To make the judging process as transparent and open as possible, members from the industry are invited to see the jury in action at Nehru Centre from April 29 to May 1. This is amongst the very few open to public jury sessions around the globe.
Visitors can watch the jury debate the entries, check out some of the best in Indian creativity and attend four FYIdays conducted by the jury members themselves. Attendance to any of the jury tours and FYIdays is free and open to professionals, media and the community as a whole, but space is limited.
The FYIday sessions will be held at the Hall of Knowledge, Nehru Centre, Worli, Mumbai. The schedule is as follows:
April 29, 9 am: Tim Doherty, Chief Creative Officer, Isobar China
April 29, 6 pm: Vicki Maguire, Deputy Executive Creative Director, Grey London
May 1, 9 am: Andy Sandoz, Creative Partner, Havas Work Club & Deputy President, D&AD
May 1, 6 pm: Tim Malbon, Co-Founder, Made By Many
The Kyoorius Awards recognise and award the most outstanding creative work in the Indian visual communications and digital sphere. To this end, Kyoorius, in association with D&AD, have endeavoured to create a truly ethical and neutral platform, complete with a jury composed of some of the top creative minds from around the world.
The Blue Elephant is recognised as a symbol of the very highest creative achievement. Kyoorius Awards have no winning tier structure â no gold, silver or bronze, and it is the juryâs prerogative to award one or multiple Blue Elephants in any one category, whereas none in another, if entries are not up to the mark. Alongside the winner, all nominations will be featured in the Kyoorius Advertising Awards Annual.
