WATConsult launches WAT’s Your Big Idea​ 2.0

WATConsult, India’s leading and most awarded digital and social media agency, a part of the Dentsu Aegis Network, today launched the second season of WAT’s Your Big Idea (WYBI).

After the grand success of its first edition last year, where they received more than 150+ registrations, 160 entries, 350 students participating and 28 teams, this year they are all set to take the property to a higher magnitude. Along with this, the recognitions and awards too have been scaled up. Besides the cash prize, endorsed certificate and an assured job offer, the winning team will also get an opportunity to visit Cannes Lions in 2018.

WYBI is one of its kind digital ideation competition for colleges across the country which provides a unique platform and massive opportunities to the next generation in the field of digital advertising and marketing. It is a college contact programme, where students get an opportunity to work on live projects, understand the nuances of creating digital campaigns for notable brands and showcase their creative skills to the best brand marketers in the country.

Spread over this month, students have to log onto www.watsyourbigidea.com and register themselves. A creative brief will be shared by the allocated brand and the students have to come back with a creative concept. Selected concepts will be detailed, and the WAT panel will shortlist them.

Shortlisted teams will then present their idea, at an off-ground event, to an esteemed jury which includes Vineet Gautam - CEO, Bestseller Group, Sukanya Dutta Roy - MD, Consumer Goods Division, Swarovski, Sabia Gulati - Head, Sales & Marketing, Madam Tussauds, Rajesh Kamat - VP, Strategy & Operations, Piramal Enterprises, Anoop Agarwal - DGM Marketing, Emami Group, before announcing the winners.

The winning team will have the opportunity to win an all-expenses trip to Cannes Lions 2018.”
