The annual & #BANNER1 & # Concerned Communicator Awards organised by 'Rajasthan Patrika' has extended its deadline for entries to August 25, 2007. The awards recognise creative excellence in social advertising. The winning entry gets Rs 5 lakh.
Participation comes in from both Indian agencies and those abroad. These awards are touted as "creativity with a cause".
Siddharth Kothari, director, 'Rajasthan Patrika', says the awards have become an international platform for advertising professionals to share their concerns through the work done. Since last year, CCA has received entries from around the world, from countries such as Canada, Mexico and the UAE. The participants have also been given an option to utilise the free imagery from the awards' image partner, Visage Images (more information is available on www.concernedcommunicatoraward.org).
