I am absolutely delighted with the kind of acknowledgement that our work has received on a global platform and only reiterates that creativity is always going to stay platform agnostic. Finally, it's the Big Idea, relevant to the digital age we live in, that is going to rule. I congratulate Dentsu Webchutney for what they have achieved here and I know that the best is yet to come!"
Sidharth Rao, Co-founder & CEO, Dentsu Webchutney, said, "While we’re elated and humbled to win 6 lions, what we are particularly proud of, is the fact that our work for swiggy, flipkart and URI won, which was real work with real results. A dear friend said it best - we didn’t win for a social experiment/cause or work for the specially abled! We won on the back of real work for real clients and not pretentious themes and that’s what we are really relishing about our wins."
Fourth Bronze for India was awarded to FCB Ulka Delhi for ‘The open door project’ in Brand Experience & Activation category.
Rohit Ohri, Group Chairman & CEO, FCB India, said, "Open Door is a breakthrough project that seeks to help solve for the education crisis that India is facing. Over 25 million children don't have access to quality education. Millennium schools and FCB Ulka partnered to promote the idea of 'Second Shift' schools. Schools which opened again after hours to provide underprivileged children quality education. Through this project, we hope to inspire many more schools to open their doors to these young hungry minds. If this project is successful, it has the power to make the future of India much brighter."
