The Ad Club Bangalore receives record nominations for Big Bang Awards 2012
The Advertising Club Bangalore, a popular body that conducts annual Awards for excellence in Communication and Media under the name & style of Big Bang Awards 2012, which is Co-presented by The Times of India, Bangalore for the 5th year in a Row. The Big Bang Awards received a record number of thousand and twenty entries from advertising agencies, Media agencies and Advertisers, across the country.
The Big Bang Awards were constituted over quarter of a century ago, bringing together agencies across the country to share their creative campaigns and network with creative geniuses. The last 5 years have seen the Big Bang Awards grow in popularity, with Bangalore growing to be the hub of advertising in South India.
Projected as the “Awards for Excellence in Communication and Media”, the Big Bang Awards added three new categories – Mobiles, PR and Health care, in 2011. The potential seen in each of these sectors has prompted the Ad Club to recognise creative inputs contributed by agencies to their clients in this space. These three categories continue to be the thrust areas this year too, says Malavika Harita, Chairperson of Big Bang Awards and Treasurer of The Advertising Club, Bangalore.
The Big Bang awards this year will feature eight types of awards for advertising within the Mobile category. Distinguishing PR efforts, internal and external, will be recognised and honoured at the awards. The evolution of specialised health communication specialists brings about the introduction of this category in the awards this time.
The Ad club Bangalore has also instituted last year an award for young achievers, creative persons under 30 to recognise and nurture their creative abilities and offer them a platform to showcase their talent.
“The Big Bang Awards present a platform to give an impetus to creativity across all levels. The advertising industry is teeming with talent and amazing work and there is a need for it to be seen by all. Through these awards we aim to recognise and infuse fresh thinking and nurture the seed of creativity that is growing among people,” said Prateek Srivastava, President of The Ad Club, Bangalore.
“The Awards will be given away to the winners at a glittering event on Friday, September 21,2012. The entry is strictly by Invitation and is free to all ad club Members” said Arvind Kumar, Executive Director of The Advertising Club, Bangalore.
