Marquees is the foremost of all advertising and marketing awards organized by the Ad Club. It is the first of its kind, in which brand performance would be evaluated objectively, with data from Kantar / IMRB, making it truly “Marquee”. The award was conceptualised to recognise and award the brand custodians considering all aspects of marketing – price, product, presence and promotion that has changed the game for a brand. Marquees also pays a special tribute to the marketing efforts of brands that have turned the tide in the face of an adversity through its special category awards. This year’s edition of the Marquees is presented by Zee and powered by Colors and Republic TV.

Brands from sectors in auto (both 2 wheelers and 4 wheelers), Durables, Life Insurance, Banking, E-commerce, Handsets, FMCG (Foods, beverages, household and personal care) and Telecom Service Providers will compete for Marquees 2018, an award that recognises creativity, effectiveness and excellence in marketing.

The industry award that debuted last year will also honour brands that surpassed challenges thorough five special awards.

 Speaking about the special categories of awards, Vikram Sakhuja, Group CEO, media and OOH, Madison Communications & President, The Advertising Club said, “Brands have the power to influence and lead conversations however as we all know that with power comes responsibilities. We were very clear from the beginning that the various categories of special awards that we finally choose should be able to directly impact people and their lives positively. The Ad Club has been a catalyst in not only guiding the advertising industry but also creating the ecosystem for positive marketing”

Partho Dasgupta, CEO, BARC India and Chairman, Marquee Awards said “In a world full of brands, we see very few marketing initiatives that create ripples and actually change behaviour. Data and insights drive me, and I am looking forward to the analysis on how the contenders of the five special categories this time have provided a fresh lease of life in their respective sectors. The Ad Club recognises the hard work of these marketers and this award is an acknowledgement and appreciation of that body of work.”
