Leading industry stalwarts on IDMA 2013 jury

To keep up with the fast-paced digital world and create beautiful work in sync with the changing trends of the space is no less than art and to recognise this art, exchange4media has returned with a bang with the Internet Digital Media Awards (IDMA).

Getting your talent recognised is not merely receiving a trophy or an award, but it is tantamount to prove that your campaigns work. In a field where there is no definite metrics for measurement, an award is a testimony to the work that you have created.

IDMA 2013 gives digital marketers an opportunity to enter their work across categories such as web, mobile, social media and languages. All the received entries will be judged by an extensive method monitored by our advisory board and judged by our esteemed jury panel.

The jury is chaired by Mahendra Swarup, Chirman, Smile Interactive and co-chaired by Vikram Sakhuja, CEO, Maxus Worldwide. The jury consists of prominent members from the media, marketing and advertising field: Amit Tiwari, Country Head Media, Philips; Ajay Kaul, CEO, Domino’s Pizza India; Anupama Ahluwalia, VP – Marketing, Coca-Cola Company; Carlton D'Silva, Chief Creative Officer, Hungama Ent; Dilip Venkataraman, CEO, CNN-IBN; Hoshie Ghaswalla, CEO – Media Business, Cybermedia; LK Gupta, CMO,; Lloyd Mathias, Founder –Director, GreenBean Ventures; Mahesh Narayanan, Country Head, Google Mobile; Narayan Sudararaman, Executive Director, Cadbury India; Radhika Shapoorjee, President, IPAN Hill + Knowlton; Ravi Bharadwaj, Executive Director, Dell India; Roma Balwani, Chief Group Comm. Officer, Mahindra & Mahindra; Roopak Saluja, Founder and CEO, The 120 Media Collective; Ruchira Jaitl, VP Marketing, Pepsico India; Shafalika Saxena, CMO, Microsoft India; Sourav Majumdar, Editor-in-Chief, Entrepreneur.
