MUMBAI: As more and more brands use the digital medium to find solutions to reach out to their target audience, the Indian media agencies are seeing an upward trend.

The latest was when WATConsult, won 19 awards at the recently held 'CMO Asia - Social Media & Digital Marketing Excellence Awards' in Singapore on 31 July 2014. An APAC level award which witnessed participation from 12 countries in the Asian region; the landslide win has made WATConsult, the highest awarded independent digital media agency in India.

The digital media agency was conferred the 'Best progressive digital marketing company' title. The win is a reflection of the fast growing nature of WATConsult, both, from a business and credibility stand point.

Among other wins, the 'Best social media campaign of the year' award was shared by Godrej master brand's campaign and bestseller group's Super Saturday campaign. The 'Best social media integrated campaign' award was shared by Radio Mirchi's ‘Mirchi Music Awards’ campaign and SAP India. The campaign for SAP India also won the 'Best use of Linkedin' award.

The credit goes to WATConsult for creating the campaign as well as the successful connect with the users online. We would like to congratulate them for the awards as well as for achieving this feat of bagging 19 awards from a single award ceremony."

Multiple awards winning campaign from TATA Chemicals - The Human Touch of Chemistry campaign continued its winning streak with the 'Best in online content' award. WATConsult, also, ventured into the social cause marketing segment winning two awards for Dr. Reddy's Laboratory and Nuclear Friends Foundation earning the title of 'Best use of social media for social cause'. Bajaj Allianz general life insurance company won the 'Best online marketing campaign' award for its lead generation campaign. India's leading FMCG conglomerate, Godrej won two more campaigns including the 'Best integrated campaign award' for their work on 'The use of digital for ROI' by Godrej Security Solutions and the 'Best rich media online ad' for the Godrej Masterbrand campaign.

The icing on the cake for WATConsult, however, was their founder & CEO, Rajiv Dingra, winning the 'Young Social Media Entrepreneur of the year' title. Dingra, who is all of just 29, is now one of the leading thought makers in the digital market circuit in India.

Dingra said, "19 Awards in one night is a huge achievement. We have shown that our work in FY 2013-14 was above industry standards and with 28 awards in total across eight award ceremonies, we have only made sure that we set our standards and sights higher for FY 2014-15. WATConsult is, now, undoubtedly the most awarded independent digital agency and we look forward to owning that no. 1 spot in the years to come."
