They are now acquiring the stature of a cause and I am very happy with the great acceptance they have received from all sections of the industry specially advertisers.

Awards committee chairman MG Parameswaran said, “The number of entries have registered a very satisfying increase, and the eminent jury were more than happy with their quality. We have received entries from across the Asian region and in fact some senior professionals based abroad will be flying into Mumbai to attend this prestigious awards function.”



IAA Vice-Chairman (Asia-Pacific region) Pradeep Guha said he was very happy that for the first time the IAA had collaborated with the Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA) in an event like this. “Such regional cooperation is the shape of things to come in the future and it is admirable that the Olive Crowns have gone pan-Asian in their third year itself.”
