Mullen Lowe Lintas Group, India wins its 75th award for the year!
Mumbai: In what can only be termed as unprecedented, Mullen Lowe Lintas Group, India picked up its 75th award for the year last night. Ironically for an agency that does not enter creative awards, it has emerged unambiguously as the “most awarded agency” in India in 2015. All 75 awards were won either for market/campaign effectiveness or on overall agency performance.
Beginning from the Effie India 2014, to the recently concluded Campaign South Asia Agency of the Year awards, Mullen Lowe Lintas Group has won a total of 75 honours this year. It began with the agency winning 7 Golds at Effie India announced in Jan 2015. It was the most by any agency for the year and beat the Gold tally of all other agencies put together. It went on to win another 6 Silver & 8 Bronze metals at the event. It followed this performance by winning the ‘Agency of the Year’ title and Carmencita Esteban Platinum Award at UA&P Asia Pacific Tambuli Awards. In all, the agency won 2 Grand Prix, 14 Golds, 3 Silvers, and 1 Bronze at the Tambuli awards this year.
The crowning moment for the group came when WARC 100, an annual report from World Advertising and Research Council ranked Lowe Lintas India as the No. 1 Creative Agency in the world while Kan Khajura Tesan (KKT) was adjudged the Best Marketing Campaign in the world. Further, at the Asian Marketing Effectiveness Awards, the agency was declared Effectiveness Agency of the Year and went on to win 10 awards, including four Silver and six Bronze awards.
On the Effie Index front, Mullen Lowe Lintas Group went on to win the title of the Most Effective Agency in India and Asia Pacific. It was also adjudged the third most Effective agency globally. At the Cannes Lions 2015, KKT won a Bronze award for Creative Effectiveness while at Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity, it won the Grand Prix for Creative Effectiveness – the only such accolade for India.
At the Warc Prize for Asian Strategy, the group won a Grand Prix, a Gold, a Silver & a Bronze. The year culminated for the agency with a fine performance at the Campaign Asia Agency of the Year awards show where it was declared the ‘Best Creative Agency of the Year’ and also won the Best New Business Development Team of the Year, Best Strategic/Brand Planner of the Year and Best Account Person of the Year.
