Projected as the 'Awards for Excellence in Communication and Media', the Big Bang Awards this year will witness the introduction of three new categories -- Mobiles, PR (Public Relations) and Healthcare. This is due to the potential seen in each of these sectors, which prompted the Ad Club to recognise creative inputs contributed by agencies to their clients in this space.

The Big Bang awards this year, will feature eight types of awards for advertising within the Mobile category. Distinguishing PR efforts, internal and external, will be recognised and honoured at the awards. The evolution of specialised health communication specialists is the reason to introduce this category of awards this time.

The Ad Club Bangalore has also instituted an award for young achievers, that is, creative persons under 30 years of age, to recognise and nurture their creative abilities, and offer them a platform to showcase their talent.

"The Big Bang Awards present a platform to give an impetus to creativity across all levels. The advertising industry is teeming with talent and amazing work, and there is a need for it to be seen by all," says Prateek Srivastava, president, The Ad Club Bangalore, adding, that through these awards, the attempt is to recognise and infuse fresh thinking and nurture the seed of creativity that is growing among people. "The introduction of the three new categories makes the Big Bang Awards bigger this year," he further states.
