Wieden+Kennedy Transforms Kyoorius Initiative Into a Wake-Up Call for the Ad Industry

“Our creative team found a way to express each hard-hitting message through some stunning typography, which has become the visual voice of the campaign.”

Kyoorius Creative Awards has introduced a special initiative this year aimed at empowering younger, growing agencies. For the first time, participants whose entries don’t make it past the first round of judging have a special incentive – they will get back 50% of their entry fee, per entry. This is also the year when newer kinds of participation are being encouraged, be it for regional or for pharma.

Their creative partner, Wieden+Kennedy India, felt this was an apt opportunity to take this brief to the next level. They’ve take Kyoorius’s initiative of ‘giving something back’ to an industry-level clarion call, urging every member from adland to give back more to the industry that has made them.

“Kyoorius has grown beyond an award, it has become the industry’s voice,” said Santosh Padhi (Paddy), Chief Creative Officer of Wieden + Kennedy India.


 

“That’s why this year’s campaign isn’t just about the award, it’s about addressing the uncomfortable realities in advertising and igniting the change it needs.”

“When I heard of Paddy’s brainchild, ‘Give Back’, it struck a chord with me. I know the world of Indian advertising is going through its toughest challenges and if we all don’t take ownership of our problems, if we don’t introspect and evolve, then who will?” added Rajesh Kejriwal, founder of Kyoorius.

Yogesh Rijhwani, ECD of W+K Mumbai, added “Our creative team found a way to express each hard-hitting message through some stunning typography, which has become the visual voice of the campaign. We enjoyed the love, especially for craft, in the comments section of these posts.”
