Creative platform Kyoorius Designyatra will be home to the Kyoorius Awards starting this year. The Kyoorius Awards have been conceptualized by Kyoorius in partnership with D&AD and the International Advertising Association (India Chapter).


A specialist jury panel has been selected for these awards, including some of the most inspirational creative professionals from across the globe. In a new format, all jury members will gather in Mumbai or Delhi for an on-ground and open-conversation jury session where they will discuss, debate and decide the winners via private voting.


The jury will review entries from nine professional categories including identity, packaging, communication, digital, space, books, editorial, craft and design for good. The jury will also review and nominate winners in the six student award categories – Identity, typography, publication design, open brief, illustration and packaging. Each student winner will receive one free student pass to the 2014 Kyoorius Designyatra along with being featured in the annual awards showcase book.


Judging of entries would be based on key three criteria:

1) The originality of the concept and visualization

2) The quality of execution

3) The relevance and context of the idea


This year’s jury comprises some of the biggest names in the creative industry across the world.

– Elsie Nanji, Managing Partner, Red Lion, Mumbai

– Hansen Ho, Founder and Creative Director, H55 – Sinagpore

– Jeremy Leslie, Creative Director, MagCulture – London

– Tania Singh Khosla, Founder and Design Director, TSK Design – Bangalore

– Gabor Schreier, Executive Creative Director of Saffron, Madrid

“We at Kyoorius aim to recognize and honour outstanding creative work across the country. It is an extended effort to follow international standards and gather all jury members in Mumbai to review, discuss and elect the best of the best over three intensive days,” said Rajesh Kejriwal, Founder and CEO, Kyoorius.


The deadline for entries has been extended to July 2. The awards ceremony will be held in Goa on August 29 at the Kyoorius Designyatra. Winners in the professional categories get one free entry of their choice to the next D&AD awards and one for the winning studio to Kyoorius Designyatra 2013. All finalists and winners get space in the special Awards Book, of which 5,000 copies will be printed and distributed across corporate world, agency and studios, schools, institutions, etc.
