Race in action: IDMA 2013 entries open

Digital marketing is often called ‘God’s little miracle’ given the fact how quickly it has become a business must from being a mere option in a media plan. The concept of digital marketing has now become a field in itself – a very dynamic one at that.

All the entries will be judged on pre-decided criteria by the Advisory Board and the jury panel. Also, in earlier conversations, Jury Chair and Chairman, Smile Interactive Mahendra Swarup, had said that innovation will be the key in all the entries.
