Vivek Nayyar of Publicis India is on the jury of New York Festivals

Vivek Nayyar, Creative Director, Publicis India, has been invited to judge the Print category awards at the New York Festivals this year. The festival, which is in its 50th year, is an International Awards Group company that recognises the world’s best work in advertising and programming.

Commenting on the development, Nayyar said, “It is a great honour and privilege to be chosen to judge one of the leading global award competitions. Being chosen once again reinforces the fact that creative work and creative people from India are being recognised around the world.”

Ambba Kuthiala, Senior Vice President, Publicis India, said, “Vivek’s selection onto the jury is a big achievement for Publicis and India. I think he made India and us proud, and I look forward to more Indians making it onto international jury panels. It is a well-deserved selection as his film for Cancer Patients Aid Association was short-listed at Cannes last year.”

Nayyar started his carrier at O&M in 1993. He moved to Ambience where he spent around seven years. Subsequent to this, he joined a dotcom company, but the love of advertising brought him back and he joined RK Swamy BBDO, where he spent a year and a half. He then moved to Publicis India where he has been for nearly two years.

Nayyar has won over a dozen international awards in the last two years. Most notable among them was being a Film Finalist at Cannes last year for his film for The Cancer Patients Aid Association.

NYF maintains an international network of representatives who promote the competitions in over 65 countries.
