It will be a wonderful opportunity to interact with such a gathering of talent and really immerse ourselves in work from across the region for a few days.”

The event will begin on April 24, 2006, with the judging of the creatives, which will go on till April 26, 2006. An exhibition of the final, short-listed creatives will be held on April 26, 2006.
