Work begins on MxMIndia 2019 Mediaperson of the Year

06 May,2019

We should’ve carried this notice earlier, but it’s been a busy news period. As MxMIndia readers are aware, over the last few years, the MxMIndia Mediaperson of the Year has earned the reputation of being one of the more credible barometer of the highest performer(s) in the fields of advertising, media and marketing in a calendar year.


Realising that many award shows are held at the end of the year and hence there is a tendency to only recall and accord importance to those who make an impact in the latter part of the year. MxMIndia instituted a process where we reviewed people and entities through the year by having periodic reviews and compiling the various high performers at the end of June. We did that many times in 2018. This year, we have tweaked the process and conducted one last week to review the achievers in Jan-Feb-March-April 2018.


Our next review will happen in end-July or early August on the completion of the second quarter of the year.


Last year’s winner of the accolade was Piyush Pandey on his rise and rise in the global creative world. In 2017, it was Arnab Goswami for the launch of Republic TV. In 2016, we had 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.


So who do you think will it be this year? We don’t know, and, frankly, it’s too early to even attempt forecasting and guessing the winner of the title.


But, having said that, there are a few names in the bag already. If you’d like us to consider any name, write to us at editor [at] or even call or whatsapp us, if you have our coordinates.


This year, the award will be presented on Friday, December 20, 2019. There have been suggestions that we should conduct a ground-level event for the same. Perhaps we will. Perhaps we won’t. Wait for a decision on that.
