This is a first. And it’s bringing in some democracy in an otherwise dictatorial process. As you know there is no voluntary voting process for the MxMIndia Mediaperson of the Year award. The decision is taken by the MxMIndia editor. And just him.


However, there have been some suggestions that while the decision-making process could continue to be what it is, perhaps we should open up and invite nominations.


So here it is: If you would like to suggest a name of group of names who you think should be bagging the 2017 MxMIndia Mediaperson of the Year award, write to the editor directly at pradyumanm [at] The last date for receiving nominations is November 10.


We have four sets of names in our shortlist already. One of them got into it just last week. But our process of shortlisting started from the first quarter, so that recency – as in those events closer to the months of deciding of the winner – shouldn’t influence the decision-making.

So, get set. Send your nominations to our editor at his personal mail id. And don’t worry. We will not reveal your identity. The MxMIndia Mediaperson of the Year will be announced and presented on Friday, December 15.

Over the years, the award has earned the reputation of being the most credible barometer of the highest performer(s)  in the fields of advertising, media and marketing in India in a calendar year. Last year’s winner of the accolade was Dentsu Aegis Network South Asia CEO Ashish Bhasin and for 2015 it was the BARC India core team of Punit Goenka, Shashi Sinha and Partho Dasgupta. It has also been seen that awardwinners of the the MxMIndia Mediaperson of the Year have only gone on to scale greater heights, as has been evident with the winners of the past two years.

So here’s a chance for you to ensure that we take the right decision. Here’s your chance to nominate someone who you think ought to win the title.

Just mail us the name(s) of the person(s), with or without reasons for why you think she/he/they are deserving. Remember, the last date is: November 10.
