Kyoorius opens call for entries for 2015 Kyoorius Advertising & Digital Awards

MUMBAI: Entries to the 2015 Kyoorius Advertising & Digital Awards will open on 2 March 2015.

Recognizing the popularity of last year’s Design for Good category, Kyoorius has created Advertising for Good, to recognize campaigns and movements aimed at promoting social awareness.
