The first edition of the IndIAA Awards, held in Mumbai yesterday, saw 16 winners recognised for their work. The IndIAA Awards were received by the advertisers along with all the co-creators of the campaign across creative and media agencies and also included other agency partners from digital, events, PR, activation, etc.
The winners were chosen from the final shortlist of 76 nominees. In its inaugural year, the IndIAA Awards received 500 entries.
Among the creative agencies, Ogilvy & Mather bagged the highest number of six awards for work done for clients BMW, Hero Indian Super League, Titan, Kinley, SBI Life and Vodafone.
Among media agencies, Maxus took home four awards for the Hero Motocorp, Titan, Dabur Vatika and Vodafone campaigns.
Also present were Jury Chairman Harish Manwani, COO Unilever and Non-Executive Chairman, Hindustan Unilever and Jury members - Bhaskar Bhat (Titan), Sangeeta Pendurkar (Kellogg’s India), B. Sriram (State Bank of India), and Sanjeeb Chaudhuri (Standard Chartered Bank).
Srinivasan Swamy, President, IAA India Chapter said, “With the IndIAA Awards, IAA has added another interesting concept to its existing cache of clutter-breaking events. We attempted IndIAA awards as an experiment; we wanted to create a different way of awarding creativity. With the response to our call for entries and the turnout today, we know that this concept has been very well accepted. At the IAA Conversations preceding the awards, Dr. Subhash Chandra and Shankkar Aiyar, as expected, brought fresh perspective and deep insights around News Neutrality through the engaging session.”
Pradeep Guha, Chairman, IndIAA Awards Committee said, “The IndIAA Award format ensured that ‘ads for awards only’ didn’t come through and this itself was the differentiator.”
Dr. Bhaskar Das, Chairman, IAA Conversations said, “Going against the grain, if need be, to deep dive into the most relevant industry topics has been the objective of IAA Conversations. Today’s topic on News Neutrality follows the same trend.”
