The Promax & BDA Awards 2002 in Singapore saw SET winning Gold for best overall packaging, a company release says. In all, SET and sister movies and cricket channel MAX have bagged five awards at the event recognised around the globe as the highest accolade for promotion and marketing professionals working in today's electronic media.
