The entries to the 2015 Kyoorius Advertising & Digital Awards opened on March 2. The second edition of the awards' 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.

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.

The entry fees for Kyoorius Advertising Awards 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.
