TBWA\India has won the Silver Lion for its work for Yatra Online, titled ‘Immigration Stamps’. Commenting on the win, Nirmalya Sen, MD, TBWA\India, said, “Needless to say, we are delighted.

The Grand Prix in Design Lions went to USA’s Digital Kitchen work for The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas campaign, titled ‘The Cosmopolitan Digital Experience’.
