McCann Worldgroup India announces participation in upcoming Goafest

McCann Worldgroup India have shared their plans for upcoming Goafest. The agency will send symbolic entries in all award categories and will also have delegates attending the festival.

Confirming their presence at the festival, Prasoon Joshi, Chairman Asia Pacific & CEO of McCann India said, "We will send symbolic token entries to honour the festival in all the categories but our delegates will participate and attend the fest in large numbers.

“We believe that genuine efforts have been made by the organizers this year to overcome the shortcomings and we also want to partner them in this journey.  Positively in the future we will see the festival touching newer heights,” he added.

According to the International Gunn report, McCann has been the most awarded Agency in India for last 3 years.

 McCann also garnered India its first D&AD Gold pencil this year. Another feather in McCann' cap came when Happydent was declared as one of the Top 20 ads done in world in the last century (Gunn report).

Joshi further added, "we take immense pride in our creative product, decision of participation in award shows is collectively taken by our global/local creative councils. We wish GoaFest the very best”
