The Indian Digital Media Awards (IDMA) is back for yet another exciting edition. The Awards aim to recognise, celebrate and encourage the work being done in the ever-growing advertising and marketing communication activity in the digital media space. The event will take place on 6th June, 2014 in Mumbai.
The Awards are to be given in five major categories – Web, Mobile, Social Media, Languages and Special Awards. Upon feedback from last year’s advisory board, the categories and process have been further refined and made more relevant to the industry.

There are the prestigious Hall of Fame Awards, which include Digital and Social Media Advertiser, Advertiser on Mobile, Digital and Social Media Agency of the Year, Mobile Media Agency of the Year, and IDMA Person of the Year.
The pre-screening council has also been redesigned this year, and experts have been brought in from across the world including countries like UK, Germany, Hong Kong & UAE.
