By A Correspondent


A BBDO Guerrero for the Philippines Department of Tourism won the $5,000 Warc Prize for Asian Strategy Grand Prix. A total of 18 papers were awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze and eight of these are from India (list below). Two Indian entries (Ogilvy’s Tagging Drive and Voltas All Weather AC campaigns) were among the five which won $1,000 Special Awards


Leanne Cutts, the 2013 Prize chair and President & Managing Director Japan at Mondelez International, said the Grand Prix winner stood out due to the simplicity of the idea, and its potential to evolve across media and across time. “The winning campaign was not only an idea for its own category, but it spilled over into other parts of life. We felt that this was an enormously valuable idea that could be sustainable and grow over time,” he said.


The 18 winning entries came from six different markets – eight from India, four from China, three from the Philippines, and one each from Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia.
