Indian Digital Media Awards: Phase I of Jury process over

The second Indian Digital Media Awards (IDMA), being hosted at the end of this month by exchange4media in Mumbai, saw the close of the first stage of its jury process on May 10, 2011. The jury members went through over 400 entries in the last few days, and have assigned scores to each entry on a scale of 10. Based on this, a shortlist of five entries from each of the 27 categories will now be drawn up, which the IDMA jury will deliberate on this week.

The second phase will take place with the jury meeting in Delhi and in Mumbai to deliberate over the entries, and choose Gold, Silver and Bronze recipients from the shortlist. This year, the jury is being co-chaired by Mahendra Swarup, Chief Mentor, Smile Interactive Technologies Group, and Shashi Sinha, CEO, Lodestar UM India.

Disney has submitted 22 entries. Nitin Chawla, VP – Disney Interactive Media Group, said, “At Disney, we continue to create compelling experiences for kids and families. By leveraging technology, we aim to deliver our stories and characters to our fans across India. Today, we are one of the leading third party brand solutions providers and we believe, participating in these awards is a great opportunity to showcase Disney’s efforts in digital family entertainment.”

He added, “We believe that awards like the Indian Digital Media Awards provide a platform for digital entertainment players such as Disney to showcase their efforts in digital family entertainment.”

Jury member Abhijit Saxena, CEO, Netcore, was of the opinion that there had not been enough innovation in the digital marketing industry in the last one year because of a lack of demand from advertisers. He said, “I was hoping for a lot of innovation, but there was a lot of standard work submitted. However, there was some very promising work, which stood out, and I hope that demand for such work will grow.”

Jury member Rajeev Kapoor, CEO, Fiat India, on the other hand, felt that the quality of work highlighted the need for such an award, and said, “The quality is very good and I feel the Awards will be very competitive. I’m seeing a lot of work which has to be scored over seven across categories. The kind of work I’m seeing leaves me with high hopes for the next round and the final results.”
