DDB Mudra Mumbai’s entry titled ‘Bush’ for the Islamic Research Foundation bagged a Bronze Pencil in the Public Service (Radio – Single) category.

One of the evening’s highlights was the presentation of the first-ever Green Pencil Award honouring excellence in the field of environmentally conscious advertising, which was presented by well-known hip hop artiste and Hollywood actor Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges to Goodby, Silverstein & Partners/San Francisco for the Haagen-Dazs Honey Bees integrated branding campaign.
