Percept Limited director Ajay Chandwani who had overseen the entire process closely, right from the round one of shortlisting of entries, to jury discussions on it to the ultimately anonymous voting to choose the winners mentioned that the jury had been extremely fair and meticulous in selecting the winners.

As per Chandwani, “Firstly the number of golds have gone down. The reason could be that the judging standard has gone up by quite a lot, therefore there are fewer golds and nothing so far has received a Grand Prix.. The other thing to note is that if there is a powerful idea the creatives have had, they making the most of it by entering it in several categories. So there are some campaigns which have gotten recognition in several categories, although the judging in each category may be different so while it gets a bronze in one category, it may get a silver in another. This is a worldwide trend not restricted to India alone.”
