Voting on for ‘impact Person of the Year 2008’

It is that time of the year again, and the process to determine who would be the ‘impact Person of the Year 2008’ is on in full swing. ‘impact’, India’s leading media, advertising and marketing weekly from the exchange4media Group, has engaged AC Nielsen as research partner for the Award.

Speaking on the Award, Anurag Batra, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, exchange4media Group, said, “In keeping with the philosophy of the Award, which is a poll of, by and for industry practitioners across media, advertising and marketing, the list of nominees is suggested and shortlisted by industry practitioners themselves.”

This is the fourth year of impact Person of the Year. The event has grown from strength to strength in the past three years. Last year, Dr Vijay Mallya, Chairman, UB Group and Kingfisher Airlines, and Rajya Sabha member, was awarded the ‘impact Person of the Year 2007’ Award.

Prior to that, in 2006, the industry chose CNN-IBN’s Rajdeep Sardesai for the title, and in 2005, it was the then STAR India Chief, Peter Mukerjea, who subsequently established his own media venture in INX Media and INX News.

The impact Person of the Year 2008 Award is scheduled to be presented in Mumbai in December 2008.
