JWT Bangalore makes a mark at the London International Advertising Awards

Close on the heels of winning a Winged Gold Statue at the London International Advertising Awards (LIAA) last year, JWT Bangalore has done it again. This time, it’s for two brands – Dockers and Kingfisher. Both the entities have received a Finalist Notification at the London International Advertising Awards this year.

Kingfisher has been nominated for the ‘Food tastes better with Kingfisher’ print campaign, while Dockers has been nominated for its point-of-purchase campaign.

LIAA is one of the world’s most prestigious advertising and design awards, and is known for its rigorous judging. To achieve Finalist status, an entry must receive an average score of 7.5 out of a maximum of 10 points.

There are silvers or bronzes here – the winner takes it all. Over the years, its jury have included legends like Jay Chiat, David Abbot, John Hegarty, Marcello Serpa, Treavor Beattie and Neil French.

Dhunji S Wadia, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, JWT Bangalore, said, “A London International Award is among the toughest to win and also among the most prestigious. As there is only one winner per category this makes the award even more desirable.”

Expressing his happiness over the nominations, Dayanand Sheelavantar, Creative Director, JWT Bangalore, said, “It’s thrilling. Both Dockers and Kingfisher are fun accounts to work on. And it’s great to win awards as well.”

The winners will be announced at the 20th Annual Awards ceremony on November 7, 2005 at the Hammersmith Palais in London.
