Sab campaigns for votes

MUMBAI: With the general elections due next year and almost everyone talking about it, Sab has decided to cash-in on the idea for its award show too.


In just its second season, Sab ke anokhe awards, has election as its theme this year. The campaign 'saal ka sab se anokha election' will enable the viewers to vote for their favourite nominee from each category.


The viewers will be able to vote for five categories - Sab Se Anokha Prani, Sab Se Anokhi Jodi, Sab Se Anokha Musibat Ka Mara, Sab Se Anokha Romance and Sab Se Anokhi Nari. And the winner will be declared only on the basis of the votes. As for the other categories, winners will be decided by a jury.


Talking on how the nominees were selected Sab EVP and business head Anooj Kapoor says, "If one looks at our shows it is quite evident that which character from a particular show will fit a certain category."


The channel hasn't left any platform to market the award show. From hoardings plastered on buses to a vote appeal on television, the channel has a pan India line of attack to get in as many votes as possible. It has booked 10,000 spots on TV, 600 hoardings across 40 cities, tie-up with Café Coffee Day outlets apart from advertising on 40 newspapers (Hindi, English & vernacular). It is also active on social media and will allow the viewers to vote through its Facebook page, Sab Play mobile app, SMS etc.


With digitalisation and the change in TAM ratings, the channel is optimistic about its reach and the number of people voting in. Last year the channel received close to five lakh votes for the awards. "With TVT, of course, we know what our reach is and hope to engage as many viewers as possible," sates an optimistic Kapoor.


The main sponsor of the award show is Rin and it is powered by Cadbury 5 Star. Kotak Mahindra, Asian Paints and Badshah Masala are the associate sponsors.


The show will be aired on 31 August and we can only hope that viewers choose the right and the deserving candidate at least in reel if not in reality!
