Expressing his views, Srinivasan K Swamy, president IAA and chairman, R K Swamy BBDO, says, "This is a young industry and we owe it to ourselves to recognise our future leaders, nurture, encourage and celebrate them. I am particularly glad that we are launching this meaningful initiative in our silver jubilee year. It reinforces our commitment to all that is good in this industry."

Carefully designed nomination forms will be going out shortly to key stakeholders in the marketing and communication space. These will then be shortlisted and placed before an eminent jury of acknowledged leaders in their own field. The winners will be honoured at the IAA Silver Jubilee Summit, to be held in Kochi on September 4 and 5.

Monica Tata, chairperson of the Future Leaders Committee adds, "Apart from the obvious prestige of being recognised and honoured before such a distinguished audience, the three winners will be sent on an all-expenses-paid trip to the AdAsia 2015 being held in Taipei this November. This would be a great learning experience for them."

The IAA, headquartered in New York, is an integrated advertising trade association with membership representing advertising agencies and the media. The IAA comprises corporate members, organizational members and educational affiliates, as well as 56 chapters with individual members and young professionals from 76 countries.

IAA India was the recipient of the 'Best Chapter Award' in 2010 and 2014. It is recognised for some of its marquee events like the IAA Olive Crown Awards, IAA Leadership Awards, IAA Debates, IAA Conversations, IAA-KyooriousDigiYatra, IAA Young Turks Forum and an array of IAA knowledge seminars, webinars, workshops and conclaves.
