And the ‘impact Person of the Year 2007’ is...

It is that time of the year again when there is more than a nip in the air and everyone is looking forward to celebrating Christmas and welcoming the New Year. Another event that has become an annual ritual for the advertising, media and marketing industry is the announcement of the ‘impact Person of the Year’. The who’s who of the industry is congregating in Mumbai on December 20 to felicitate the ‘impact Person of the Year 2007’.

The Award is in essence a celebration of an inspiring individual’s contribution to the industry. Celebrating excellence on its way, the ‘impact Person of the Year’ has evolved in its third edition. 25 stalwarts have reached the nomination list after incisive research by ACNielsen, the research partner.

In keeping with the philosophy of the property – which is a poll of, by and for industry practitioners across media, advertising and marketing – the list of nominees has been suggested and short-listed by industry practitioners themselves.

Among the nominees this year are some heavyweight industrialists, too, whose brands’ performances and their forays into the media space seem to have impressed the senior industry professionals who voted for them.

The 25 stalwarts nominated include Anil Ambani, Vineet Jain, Subhash Chandra, Kalanidhi Maran, Shobhana Bhartia, Harit Nagpal, Rajdeep Sardesai, Peter Mukerjea, Piyush Pandey, Prasoon Joshi, R Balki, Sanjeev Bikhchandani, Vijay Mallya, Pradeep Guha, Prannoy Roy, Kishore Biyani, Harish Thawani, Colvyn Harris, Sam Balsara, Haresh Chawla, Raghav Behl, Ronnie Screwvala, Jagdish Khattar, Santosh Desai and Tarun Tejpal.

In its first edition in 2005, the industry had raised a toast to Peter Mukerjea as the ‘impact Person of the Year’. The industry chose CNN-IBN’s Rajdeep Sardesai for the title in 2006. Both the past winners find themselves among the list of nominees this year as well.

The 2007 short-list has been expanded to 25 nominees because of the marginal difference in points between several nominees in the second phase of the process, which involved short-listing by a large panel of industry leaders. In Phase I, the industry was invited through an open-ended question to suggest their nominees and give their reason for the same.

The sponsors for the event are Red FM as the presenting sponsor and DSN (Digital Signage Networks) as co-sponsor. The associate sponsors are Bindass, Vikatan Group and Times OOH. Other sponsors for the event include Encompass, Business Standard, ACNielsen, FMCC, 24 Frames Digital and i2eye interactive.
