Ogilvy & Mather India earns accolade in Hong Kong, US

Ogilvy & Mather India seems to be on a spree to clinch recognitions from across the world. The group stands as one of the three finalists short-listed for Asia’s ‘Office of the Year’ Award at Media magazine’s 2004 Agency of the Year Awards in Hong Kong. In another development, OgilvyOne Worldwide, Mumbai – the direct marketing division of Ogilvy & Mather, won two gold awards at the Rx Club Awards, held in the US.

On the Media magazine award, an official release quoted Piyush Pandey, EC and NCD, O&M, as saying: “It is a fantastic recognition. Now let’s keep our fingers crossed.” The Media Awards are prestigious and well recognised by the advertising industry across Asia. The three most contested awards are Agency Network of the Year, Media Agency of the Year and Agency Office of the Year. O&M Asia/Pacific won the Network award in 2003.

In the US, the O&M juggernaut claimed two gold awards for the works done for Novartis and Pfizer. Additionally, OgilvyOne was also awarded eight Awards of Excellence for Dr Reddy’s (three awards), Novartis (two), Johnson & Johnson (one award) and Nicholas Piramal (two awards).

Kaizad Pardiwalla, Business Director – West, OgilvyOne Worldwide, Mumbai was quoted as, “The RX Club is one of the most prestigious awards in the healthcare industry worldwide. Having pitted ourselves against the best in the world and topping with two gold and eight awards of excellence is a fantastic feeling. However, this is possible only when we have clients who are partners in the true sense of the word and who encourage the agency to think out of the box.”

For OgilvyOne Worldwide Mumbai, this award is more significant because OgilvyOne is the only Indian agency to win a metal, read the official statement.
