Commenting on the Effies 2011 and the overall process, Leo Burnett NCD KV Sridhar (Pops) said, "I think this year is a landmark year in Effies for putting up the fantastic judging process. This year 50 per cent jury members are clients and others are planning heads of different agencies and there were no creative guys judging, which was how it should be. Therefore, one can see them patiently going through all the data, questioning the validity of data and then finally rewarding those pieces of work which is backed with great data and market results which is of great interest to clients. Creativity and efficiency go hand in hand and it is only a myth that creativity is only for the ego of creative guys to build businesses."

Incidentally, there were no winners for David v/s Goliath, B2B Advertising and Rural advertising categories.
