AAAI & The Advertising Club announce "Champions of Excellence Awards" to be held at Goafest 2017

The EFFIE Awards ceremony in Mumbai that saw the entire Advertising and Marketing fraternity come together witnessed the announcement of another landmark initiative- The Champions of Excellence awards. Conceived and curated by the Advertising Agencies Association of India (AAAI) and The Advertising Club, the awards will recognize and honor Six Champions of Excellence at the Goafest 2017.

It is for the first time ever that we have an award dedicated to acknowledging and saluting visionary advertisers who have taken the leap of faith and invested resources, ensuring that “Great ideas transform into Great advertising”.

Speaking about instituting the new awards,  Raj Nayak President, The Advertising Club said “We believe that this initiative will plug a very important white space in the process of celebrating excellence in advertising. The advertiser’s product or service is the raison d’etre for advertising and their role in inspiring good advertising is imperative and must be celebrated.”

Nakul Chopra, President AAAI added that “these awards celebrate clients who motivate and encourage their agencies to push the creative envelope and create winning campaigns. They also acknowledge clients who invest in meaningful relationships with their agencies.”

Ashish Bhasin Chairman GoaFest said “the presentation of this award at GoaFest makes our festival more complete and comprehensive. Now we have all the people playing an instrumental role in bringing alive the magic we call advertising, assembled and recognized in one place.”

Nominations for the awards are invited from Agencies for Champions of Excellence, and will be judged by senior members of the Awards Governing Council of the Abby awards. The entry should mention the name of a senior member of the advertiser team who could be considered for this high honor. It should include a note of not more than 500 words explaining why the individual was deserving of this award. The entry should be signed by the NCD or CEO of the Agency and sent to the AAAI (Please mention email id) before 31st. January 2017. Multiple entries are permitted. There is no entry fee.
