These awards commenced in 2002 with The American Business Awards, followed by The International Business Awards in 2003, and now The Stevie Awards.

D Ramakrishna, Vice President & Executive Creative Director, JWT Mumbai, said, "The one thread running across all our work has been the use of life insights underpinned with humour, making it universally appealing."

"The impact made by these TV commercials was huge in the marketplace resulting in a huge surge in sales for both categories," said Suranjan Das, Vice President & Client Services Director, JWT Mumbai, who heads the Philips account. 'Bada TV' resulted in over 60 per cent increase in CTV sales in 2004 over the previous year. The DVD 'Ramukaka' film (which also won the Ad Club, Mumbai EFFIE silver) helped in the growth of the DVD category by 1000 per cent in 2003-04.
