The Advertising Club has announced various sector and special category awards for Marquees 2018. Brand performance will be evaluated with data from Kantar / IMRB. This year’s edition of the Marquees is presented by Zee and powered by Colors and Republic TV.

Brands from sectors in auto (both 2 wheelers and 4 wheelers), Durables, Life Insurance, Banking, E-commerce, Handsets, FMCG (Foods, beverages, household and personal care) and Telecom Service Providers will compete for Marquees 2018, an award that recognises creativity, effectiveness and excellence in marketing.

Speaking about the special categories of awards, Vikram Sakhuja, President, The Advertising Club said: “Brands have the power to influence and lead conversations however as we all know that with power comes responsibilities. We were very clear from the beginning that the various categories of special awards that we finally choose should be able to directly impact people and their lives positively. The Ad Club has been a catalyst in not only guiding the advertising industry but also creating the ecosystem for positive marketing.”

Added Partho Dasgupta, Chairman, Marquee Awards: “In a world full of brands, we see very few marketing initiatives that create ripples and actually change behaviour. Data and insights drive me, and I am looking forward to the analysis on how the contenders of the five special categories this time have provided a fresh lease of life in their respective sectors. The Ad Club recognises the hard work of these marketers and this award is an acknowledgement and appreciation of that body of work.”
