Dentsu Aegis Network India has bagged the highest tally of metals as a group at the Creative Abbys at the Goafest 2017 edition.

With 13 Gold, 39 Silver and 35 Bronze wins, Dentsu Aegis Network has brought home a whopping 87 metals, demonstrating its creative prowess that surely matches up to the group’s business growth momentum.

Dentsu Webchutney (13 metals), Happy mcgarrybowen (7 metals), Milestone Brandcom (4 metals) and Isobar (2 metals each) put in their collective best to surpass all other groups at this year’s Goafest. With wins across the entire gamut of categories—from film to print, out-of-home to activation and design to digital—Dentsu Aegis Network showed itself to be a creative force to be reckoned with, even as its business growth has been ample evidence of client faith in the group’s capabilities.

I must congratulate our creative leadership team for demonstrating such high quality of work across such a wide category range. Business growth can only be sustained on the back of fantastic creative work, and our performance at Goafest 2017 is a demonstration of that.

In our business, great creativity is the best accelerator and what pleases me is that all our creative agencies have performed so well at Goafest 2017.”
