The India Chapter of the International Advertising Association (IAA) has announced the IAA Future Leaders Awards. The awards will take place on 4 and 5 September in Kochi, as part of the IAA Silver Jubilee Summit.
As per the initiative, three future leaders below the age of 30 will be identified and honoured.
The IAA will shortly be sending out nomination forms to key stakeholders in the marketing and communication space. Nominations would be shortlisted and placed before an eminent jury of acknowledged leaders in their own field.
Srinivasan K Swamy president, IAA India chapter and chairman, RK Swamy BBDO, said, “This is a young industry and we owe it to ourselves to recognise our future leaders, nurture them, encourage them and celebrate them. I am particularly glad we are launching this meaningful initiative in our silver jubilee year. It reinforces our commitment to all that is good in this industry.”
Monica Tata, chairperson of the Future Leaders committee, added, “Apart from the obvious prestige of being recognised and honoured before such a distinguished audience, the three winners would be sent on an all-expenses-paid trip to the AdAsia 2015 being held in Taipei this November. This would be a great learning experience for these young leaders.”
