Citing popular demand, the Bombay Ad Club has announced its decision to extend the last of submission of entries for the EMVIES to May 29, 2006. The initial last date was May 23.
“There have been too many people who have given us calls saying that they need more time to submit their entries and we envisage good enough numbers coming for the awards. So, we have decided to extend the submission dates to May 29, 2006,” said Ad Club’s Bipin Pandit.
He is, however, quick to add, “Of course, after this, we would not be able to make any kind of change in the dates because the judging process will begin. We refused many calls requesting extension, but there are cases where we feel that people have genuine reasons to not be able to meet the earlier stated deadline.”
When asked whether he would be able to give any details on the numbers of entries that can be expected this year, Pandit said, “Not just right now. But once the May 29 deadline is over and we can sort it out, I would be able to give out the number of entries this year. What I can tell you is that we are looking at a good number of entries and a wider participation.”
