It’s September 19, and 88 days to December 16, the day when we will announce the 2022 MxMIndia Mediaperson of the Year. 

While we have done our long list, we wish to remind you that you too can suggest names to us for the coveted award. Nominations are welcome till Friday, December 2, 2022. Please send them directly to pradyuamanm [at] mxmindia.com. Your name and reasons, if any, will be kept confidential.

There are 11 names in our long list, and we hope to be able to take it up to 15 to then work on a shortlist.

As our readers are aware, over the last few years, the MxMIndia Mediaperson of the Year 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.

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 didn’t do that too often last year, but this we did.

Last year’s winner (2o21) of the accolade was The Wire. In 2020, it was the Independent Journalist. In 2019, it was Sidharth Rao for mainstreaming digital in creative advertising. In 2018, it was Piyush Pandey and in the previous year, 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. That was the first year we gave away the award, virtually of course.

As we said earlier, this year, the award will be presented online (on MxMIndia) on Friday, December 16, 2022. 88 days. Wait for it.
