Bangalore is gearing up for Big Bang Awards 2007, to be held on July 27. Organised by Bangalore Ad Club, Big Bang will see agencies, clients and creative hotshops vying for a total of 54 awards spread over 11 categories, including the coveted ‘Agency of the Year’ award, called what else but ‘Big Bang’.
Moreover, for the first time, the Ad Club Bangalore has introduced two new categories – Local Language Ads (best Kannada press ad, film ad and outdoor ad, and best Kannada TV commercial). This category is sponsored by Zee Kannada Channel. The second new category is Media Awards on the line of Emvies, which will be judged by a jury of media specialists. The media awards will cover the entire gamut of media – both conventional and new media.
The lead sponsor of Big Bang Awards 2007 is Bangalore Mirror. The other sponsors include Zee TV Kannada, Visage – Getty Images, Prop Mart, and Big FM.
Arvind Kumar, Executive Director of Ad Club, Bangalore, is gung-ho about the arrangement in place and hopes that this year’s event would be very exciting and entertaining. Big Bang 2007 would be a thematic evening and the brief to the event managers was to focus on the spirit of Bangalore and the ever growing local media options, Kumar said.
The event will be put together and managed by DNA Networks, Bangalore. “Agencies can look forward to having a good time and returning home with pleasant memories,” Kumar added.
