The awards will open for entry on 27th June 2016 and close on 29th July 2016. Submission of physical entries for the awards will then remain open for a week.
Kyoorius, for the first time ever, introduced the concept of Open Jury – the jury sessions are open to the industry people to watch, learn, check and benefit from the discussions and display of entries.
The Jury session will be held from 2nd September to 4th September May in Mumbai at Ecole Intuit Lab.
In coordination with D&AD, the jury will be a mix of International (West and East) and local jurors. Like every year, the awards will uphold the zero-tolerance policy for scam ads. Gabor Schreier, Executive Creative Director, Saffron Brand Consultants will head the jury.
Rajesh Kejriwal, Founder & CEO of Kyoorius, commented, ‘Awards are primarily to inspire and motivate the industry achievers. At Kyoorius Design Awards, the name does not matter – Merit does. We know that Designers are a terribly undervalued kind; and we are out to prove them all wrong. Because we love you more.
I am also happy with the response that we have always got for having a transparent open jury process and we shall continue to do so. I personally feel that many studios/agencies have done brilliant work in the last year and hence I am expecting a lot more participation of more agencies.’
The Kyoorius Design Awards show will be held on Saturday October 1 2016 at Designyatra held this year at Fairmont Hotel, Jaipur. The awards show will be attended by well over 1250 professionals.
The Kyoorius Creative Awards are presented by ZEE TV.
