To celebrate its fourth anniversary, Scarecrow hosted an 'Aam Aadmi Party' – a celebration to felicitate the unsung heroes of Indian advertising.
The 'Aam aadmis' consist of voiceover artists, speciality colourists, hair stylists, exceptional musicians, product window specialists, animal trainers to even rainmakers – each of them is exceptional at their work and is truly gifted. Scarecrow got in touch with the fraternity and got their views and votes on why and who would they nominate as a true unsung hero.
On the evening of 6 February 2014, Scarecrow invited the advertising fraternity, the marketing industry, film production, print production and other services to attend the evening.
The chief guests invited to hand over the award to the 24 deserving unsung heroes, included Bhaskar Das, Rajiv Rao, Manisha Lath Gupta, Ajay Kakkar, Ajay Chandwani, Prashant Godbole, Ravi Deshpande, Vikram Gaikwad and Rajesh Kejriwal amongst others.
