Whose creative vision has made him an undisputed icon, touching countless lives with his work. The man who inspires us to dream, every day. Advertising Club Calcutta is proud to induct into its Hall of Fame, Josy Paul."
 
Kanchan Datta, president, Advertising Club Calcutta, said, “In advertising our job is to enthral through great stories. The human mind instinctively loves great storytelling. In the past, we have had the privilege of honoring great storytellers from our world, like Alyque Padamsee, AG Krishnamurthy, Piyush Pandey, Prasoon Joshi, Aggie, and this time we are honoring Josy Paul. We are proud of all of them for captivating millions of minds around the world.”
 
Paul said, "Thank you, Advertising Club Calcutta. Thank you for your belief in me and my work. I am so overwhelmed I am trembling with gratitude. I can't help but remember all the people who made me, who believed in me. I am a sum of these amazing mentors. Their belief is contagious! Belief is a crouching tiger that shows itself when you are facing failure and rejection. I carry their torch of belief with me and pass it around to my colleagues, partners, and everyone I meet.”
