Entries came from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers.
“Testament to the success of our marketing campaign, global search interest and media exposure have more than doubled, with record-breaking year-on-year increases,” said Siddhartha Butalia, Director of Marketing at Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces.
“The global recognition and accolades are a feather in the cap and a well-deserved tribute to the creativity and innovation of the team at Oi and everyone involved in this campaign.”
