There were four winners in the Activation category and two in the Radio category.

Commenting on the awards, Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman & Creative Director, and Ogilvy South Asia said, “We won so much of ABBYs that the awards were laying on the floor and that started disturbing me. I realised that something was wrong and it was on us to bring back the respect. On a lighter note, we are not here to close down the ABBYs because that is quite a destructive thing to do. Our intension is to encourage, inspire young talent to do better and raise the bar of ‘good work’.

Kunal Jeswani, CEO, Ogilvy India further added, “We measure the success of the Envies from how excited our employees are to enter the awards. The width of great work has increased across disciplines year-on-year and Envies are a celebration of our work, our culture, our people and our clients. They foster a sense of pride in where we work, what we create and the clients and brands we create it for. Every company finds ways to celebrate its champions and its best work. This is ours.”
