The number of entries submitted by Indian agencies has decreased with 27 entries submitted this year as compared to 33 last year.

This year, 2458 entries from 59 countries, a decrease of 13% compared with last year, have been submitted. This is due to the introduction of Mobile Lions, entries of which were previously submitted into the Cyber Lions category.
