Commenting on the awards, Mr Chandwani said: “The second edition of DMA Echo Awards saw a doubling of entries this year with 30 companies sending 108 entries. Echo awards are all about Marketing Response and Effectiveness which is why clients, planners and creative people are part of the jury. In fact the jury had to patiently read nearly 400 pages of case submissions before they could judge entries. I hope to see more media companies and agencies participating next year.”
