Race in action: IDMA 2013 entries open

Digital marketing is often called ‘God’s little miracle’ given the fact how quickly it has become a business must from being a mere option in a media plan. The concept of digital marketing has now become a field in itself – a very dynamic one at that.

The Indian Digital Media Awards (IDMA) celebrates the digital marketing field and recognises benchmarks that will shape the future of the field and also inspire others to aim higher. The entries for IDMA 2013 are now open.

IDMA is the second exchange4media event that has an Advisory Board along with a jury panel to monitor the judging proceedings and entries very closely.

All the entries will be judged on pre-decided criteria by the Advisory Board and the jury panel. Also, in earlier conversations, Jury Chair and Chairman, Smile Interactive Mahendra Swarup, had said that innovation will be the key in all the entries.

Vikram Sakhuja, CEO, Maxus Worldwide and Jury co-chair of IDMA 2013 shared that how traditional is redefined will also be looked at closely in the judging process.

The jury panel consists of eminent industry personalities such as Amit Tiwari, Country Head - Media, Philips India; Ajay Kaul, CEO, Domino’s Pizza India; Anupama Ahluwalia, VP – Marketing, Coca-Cola Company; Carlton D’Silva, Chief Creative Officer, Hungama Ent; Dilip Venkataraman, CEO, CNN-IBN; Hoshie Ghaswalla, CEO – Media Business, Cybermedia; LK Gupta, CMO, RedBus; Lloyd Mathias, Founder – Director, GreenBean Ventures; Mahesh Narayanan, Country Head, Google Mobile; Narayan Sudararaman, Executive Director, Cadbury India; Radhika Shapoorjee, President, Ipan Hill + Knowlton; Ravi Bharadwaj, Executive Director, Dell India; Roma Balwani, Chief Group Comm.
