Leo Burnett India shines at WARC Prize 2016

MUMBAI: The Leo Burnett Group has shone at 2016 edition of the WARC Prize for Asian Strategy. Leo Burnett India and Orchard Advertising (a Leo Burnett agency) pick up an award each. The WARC awards uphold and celebrate breakthrough strategic thinking that drives businesses, in Asia, and have awarded a total of 17 cases this year.

Orchard Advertising (a part of the Leo Burnett Group) brought home a well-deserved Silver for its campaign for Amazon ‘Show Me More’ (Aur Dikhao). Additionally, Leo Burnett brought in a Bronze for its revolutionary campaign for the Bajaj V’s ‘The Nation’s Bike’ campaign.

Leo Burnett south Asia chief strategy officer Dheeraj Sinha said, “Our work for Amazon has emanated from truly Indian insight of seeking more choices whether it's the process of selecting a groom through arranged marriage or buying consumer products. The campaign has helped Amazon, a global brand, build local familiarity and connect.

The work on Bajaj V stands out because the marketing idea is embedded in the product. The bike is a symbol of pride for the youth of the country, especially in a context when so much is under question in the country. And it's not just an ad campaign, it's a real product. That's what makes it stand out.”

Leo Burnett south Asia chief creative officer Raj Deepak Das expressed his elation thus, “Both the award-winning campaigns are stellar examples of work that upholds our Humankind philosophy. That Amazon and Bajaj make for wonderful, supportive clients is a very vital plus and speaks of the great client-agency relationship we share.”
