AdAsia Free Ticket contest on social media targets youth participation

As a build up to the 27th edition of AdAsia 2011, which will be held in Delhi from October 31 to November 3, the Organising Committee of AdAsia 2011 has announced three contests on Social Media around the theme ‘Uncertainty the New Certainty’. Presented by the Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA), the much awaited Congress will be held in India after a gap of eight years. The last Congress hosted by India was in 2003 in Jaipur.

Commenting on the contests on Social Media, Madhukar Kamath, Group Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Mudra Group, and Chairman, AdAsia 2011, said, “We are pleased to announce these contests revolving around the AdAsia 2011 theme – ‘Uncertainty the New Certainty’. I am very keen to understand from young marketers their perceptions and interpretations of the theme. I also believe that this is a great way to engage with the entire social media community.”

Participants are urged to interpret the AdAsia 2011 theme ‘Uncertainty: The New Certainty’ on Twitter: TweetUrThought using the #AdAsia2011 tag. The best tweet will be awarded a conference registration waiver. [Url: http://twitter.com/#!/adasia2011, Linkedin: http://www.linkedin.com/in/adasia2011].
