The names of the jury members have also been revealed for the Advertising and Digital awards. The jury includes a mix of creative minds from international, national and regional agencies. The Jury Foreman for the advertising awards is Nils Leonard from GREY London, while for the digital awards is Andy Sandoz from Havas Work Club.
Rajesh Kejriwal, founder CEO of Kyoorius, commented, "The Kyoorius Awards recognise the wealth of talent that exists in the country. Last year, we were overwhelmed by the support from the creative communications and digital industries. In 2014, the Kyoorius Awards received 2131 entries across all categories. This year, we hope to see a wider participation, with many more innovative and impactful campaigns and ideas from all sizes of agencies and all corners of the country. Show us what creativity can do!"
This year, Kyoorius Advertising & Digital Awards has also introduced a series of new categories that acknowledge emerging and under-recognised areas in advertising and digital communication. These include Branded Film Content & Entertainment, TV Cinema & Title Sequences, Show Programme Promotion and Tactical Advertising for Press & Film. Recognising the popularity of last year's Design for Good category, Kyoorius has created Advertising for Good, to recognise campaigns and movements aimed at promoting social awareness.
Meanwhile, the call for entries will close on April 10, 2015, and the jury session will be held from April 29 to May 2, 2015. The final awards will be held in Mumbai on May 22, 2015.
Kyoorius Advertising Awards' entry fees are fed back into the industry. Funds are used to develop Kyoorius FYIdays, an initiative aimed at stimulating creative professionals and educating students - India's future creative superstars.
