The Advertising Council of India (ACI) has picked the six winners who it will be sponsoring for a 'Fast Track' programme curated by the Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA).
It will be run in Kuala Lumpur between 10-13 July 2014.
The six professionals were selected by a process involving short-listing from entries received in response to a nation-wide contest followed by an interview-process conducted in multiple cities.
The winners are:
Natasha Dhingra, Aidem
Saudamini Junnarkar, Lowe & Partners
Yogesh Mehta, Ceat India
Mayukh Guha Thakurta, Creativeland Asia
Rose Ann Francis, Purplemango

Pradeep Guha, chairman, AFAA, said, “We see this effort as our way of helping develop talent and ultimately enriching our industry. We were planning on sending four professionals, but the quality of the applicants was so good, we ended up selecting six. I am personally glad they represent the diversity that exists in the communications industry and am confident they will have a great experience."
