Preeti Verma of Rediffusion DY&R was the only Indian to qualify for the International Clio Future Gold Contest at the Clio Festival and has subsequently won. Verma and her copy partner had competed with five art-copy teams at the festival held from May 9-12 at Miami.
Verma has been with Rediffusion for the past one-and-a-half years. She had also taken home a Silver and Bronze at the Goafest 2007.
Mahesh Chauhan, President, Rediffusion DY&R, said, “Rediffusion has always believed that young talent brings a freshness and vibrancy to our thinking. Experience of an agency must always be partnered with fresh blood to keep advertising alive and in touch with the times.”
Verma had also been sent to Cannes last year after winning the Young Creative contest at the AAAI 2006.
Prashant Godbole, Creative Head, Rediffusion DY&R Mumbai, said, “Preeti is one of the most consistent and talented young creative person in our agency today. She is very hardworking, and most eager to learn. I think she will go very far ahead and we are very proud to have her as a part of the RDYR team.”
