Cochin Ad Club back with 7th edition of Pepper Awards

The Advertising Club Cochin and Pepper Creative Awards Trust have jointly announced the 7th edition of Pepper Creative Awards, touted as the largest creative awards in South India and the second largest in India.

Call for entries have been sent to all ad agencies in South India. A panel of eminent personalities from India’s creative world will evaluate the entries for Pepper 2013. The last date for receiving entries is March 15, 2013.
