When they're good, they're very good: Piyush

The final round of judging for Effies 2008, organised by Ad Club, took place on November 14. Campaign India caught up with the judges during the lunch break to get their views on the quality of this year's work that they had seen so far. O&M's Piyush Pandey (pictured) felt that there were some entries which had good results but were quite mediocre. He added, "We have only gone through half of it right now and as it's a long shortlist, there will be ups and downs. But the good ones are very good."
