Social Samosa head Hitesh Rajwani said, “We thank all our participants and winners from the entire team at Social Samosa. We hope to scale to larger heights in our next edition.”

Dentsu Aegis Network chairman & CEO - south Asia and Posterscope chairman Ashish Bhasin said, “The quality of their work was good and the jury had a tough time choosing the winners."

Hungama Digital Services shared CEO & CCO Carlton D’Silva, commented, “Digital Advertising being a part of our daily lives, most of the entries seemed very familiar to me but I was enlightened by the thinking behind most of the winning campaigns. I particularly liked the Ola and the Zomato Campaigns."

Brand curator Lata Subramanian said, “I hope that these brands serve as case studies to help other marketers understand the role social media can play in building brands.”

Social Samosa had partnered with Unmetric to power the Best Social Media Brands Index, Treize Communications for media outreach and Newsfeed SmartApps for online voting.
