The India Chapter of the International Advertising Association (IAA) has announced that it is now accepting entries for the fourth edition of the IAA Olive Crown Awards.
The ‘Green’ awards are for creative excellence in communicating sustainability. The entry form can be down loaded from iaaindiachapter.org.
The Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA) will continue to support the event this year. Like last year, the awards will be pan-Asia.
Srinivasan Swamy, chairman RK Swamy BBDO, and president, India Chapter and VP-Development Asia Pacific, IAA, said, “These awards have acquired the hue of a ‘cause’ and this is one of the reasons for their universal acceptance.”
Ramesh Narayan, founder, Canco Advertising, and Dr MG Parameswaran of Draftfcb-Ulka, are co-chairmen of the IAA Olive Crown Awards 2014.
Parameswaran said, “We cannot put a price on our commitment to ‘Brand Earth’ and that is why there is no entry fee for this one-of-a-kind award. The quality of entries was very high last year and we are expecting an even better standard this time.”
The last date for entries to the awards is 31 January 2014 and the awards will be presented in Mumbai in March 2014.
For the third time in succession, 9XM will be the presenting sponsor of the Olive Crown Awards. Hungama and the Patrika Group are ‘Green partners’.
