Since 1997, Promax has honoured creativity, innovation, and storytelling in the media and entertainment industry.
The Indian M&E industry has largely been driven by increasing digitisation and higher internet usage over the last decade. Internet has almost become a mainstream media for entertainment for most of the people. This growth is largely because of the deepening digital infrastructure across tier-II and III cities and further helped by the spike in digital consumption on account of Covid-19.
“With OTT giants like Zee5 already churning out content in over 10-12 regional languages, looking ahead with the intent of doubling down, vernacular is without doubt the future. This is even more apparent with the establishment of hyperlocal OTT platforms like Stage, which focus on regional languages like Haryanvi, Maithili and Magadhi…I think we can be confident that regional content and vernacular-led OTT platforms will continue to burst upon the scene!” said Priti Murthy, CEO, OMD India.
“Promax has always had a very special relationship India and we have seen the tremendous growth that India has witnessed in the Media space. With 22 official languages, 121 languages and more than 19,500 mother tongues spoken in in India and a population of 121 crore, the growth of regional is phenomenal and will continue to grow particularly the tier 3 and 4 markets — that are being considered the biggest high-growth areas. Keeping the rise of regional in mind, we are delighted to put together the first-ever India Regional Conference and Awards 2021,” said Rajika Mittra, Promax Country Head and Strategic Partnerships (India, Hong Kong and Philippines).
The Promax Awards are a celebration of outstanding achievement in entertainment marketing and design. The Promax India Regional Awards will witness outstanding creative works in entertainment, marketing, promotion and design from all regional markets of India across 25 categories.
