Rajesh Kejriwal, Founder & CEO of Kyoorius, said, “Kyoorius is the foremost award show that discovers and celebrates all work that works. We firmly believe that every great work must be awarded without discriminating into gold, silver or bronze. Given that only about 3 per cent win a Blue Elephant and one or two works win a Black Elephant, I am sure that winning a Kyoorius Elephant will be the pinnacle of one's career. Together with D&AD, we meticulously select top creative talent – international and national – to be included in the jury panel. The juries are selected on the basis of their ability to recognise work that typify game-changing work in creative communication. I am deeply honoured to have R Balki as the chair of the advertising jury this year together with some of the best minds in the industry.”

The Kyoorius Creative Awards 2016 will be held on 3rd June 2016, Dome @ NSCI, Worli-Mumbai. The awards show is expecting over 1500 professionals including CEO's, Marketing Directors, Brand Managers, Creative and Media gurus, etc.
