What I feel is that a lot of agencies win awards for ‘patli gali’ advertising, which no one has even seen. But yes, winning at the Cannes Lions, or the Agency of the Year Award at Effies carries a lot of brand equity with it. It is a recognition of one’s creativity and creates a strong perception about the quality of work done. Unfortunately, people associate creativity with the number of awards won and how extensively it is reported in the media.
