Neeraj Roy, president, IAA India Chapter, said, “We all recognise the importance of real advertising that is created following a brief, and which has passed through the rigor of client approval, to address a genuine need in the market. I am glad that this jury will lend their expertise to pick deserving winners, and the teams comprising the CMO/brand managers, the agencies behind creating the work and placing them on media, will together go up on stage to collect the Awards”. 
 
Srinivasan Swamy, Sr. VP and president-elect, IAA Global, added, “I am happy that the IndIAA awards have such a senior jury.

This is the only award where all their important constituents are coming together to collect the award on a single stage.” 
 
M V Shreyams Kumar, JMD, Mathrubhumi Group, said, “Being in the news space, credibility is very important to us. Awarding real advertising therefore appealed to us. The announcement of such a distinguished jury only adds to that credibility factor. We are pleased to partner in an initiative where credibility and excellence in creative expressions fuse so well."
