Taproot India has bagged two Golds – Creative Agency of the Year Award and Agency of the Year for India and the Subcontinent – at the Campaign Asia-Pacific Awards held at Singapore on Monday, 10th December.


The Campaign Asia-Pacific Agency Award is in its 19th year and continues recognizing inspired leadership, management excellence and outstanding achievements in advertising and communication industry.


For Taproot India, the year began with a bang with 34 metals at Goafest, making them the second best creative agency in the country. Their work also picked up a Gold Cannes Lion, in craft category for ‘I am Mumbai’ campaign. With multiple awards, they were the runner-up independent agency at Spikes Asia 2012. A week back they won three gold metals at Ad Club EFFIE Awards and now, this achievement brings a well deserved end to the year. Speaking on this win, an overwhelmed Santosh Padhi, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder, Taproot India said, “It feels great to get recognition for your work. Every win inspires us to do bigger and better the next time. We have topped the table on many occasions, be it local or international awards or be it creative or effective awards.”

Agnello Dias, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder, Taproot India, said, “In a small agency there is more transparency and the flow of communication is effective. As long as your client is content and the idea clicks with your audience, the size of the agency is secondary. The trend has changed and now it is your work that matters.”


“This is a fantastic win for Aggi and Paddy and the entire Taproot team. A true testimony to the fact that Taproot is today the creative powerhouse of the region. They absolutely deserve this recognition and I’d like to believe that, in some small way, we brought them this luck”, said Rohit Ohri, Executive Chairman, Dentsu India Group. Taproot India is a part of the Dentsu Network after Dentsu Inc. acquired 51 percent equity in the near-four-year-old agency.
