Star India bags 21 metal at ABBY Awards
MUMBAI: The Star India Network has emerged as a strong winner at the prestigious ABBY Awards at the Goafest, 2017, with a tally of 21 metals.
Out of the total 21 metal, 15 awards went to the entries by Star India whereas six awards were received by to agency partners – Mindshare and Social Street.
Star India’s marquee campaign Nayi Soch was a big winner with 3 Golds, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze, along with POW-Bandhi Yuddh Ke, which bagged 1 Gold, 2 Silvers and 2 Bronze. Star Jalsha’s memorable ‘Bring Them Back’ campaign commemorating the West Bengal Police followed up with five metals – 3 Silvers and 2 Bronze.
Rounding off this haul were awards received by Star World’s Koffee with Karan, which won in two categories, and Hotstar’s Splits, Jungle Book on Star Plus and Star Movies’ Book Adaptations War Promo, which won a bronze each, for an impressive network total of 4 gold, 8 silver and 9 bronze wins.
Star India Consumer Strategy & Innovation President Gayatri Yadav says, “”We are delighted to win big at ABBYs this year. Our shows and brand campaigns have always reflected our intent to entertain in a meaningful manner. It is great to see such campaigns resonate well with the audiences and be recognised on an industry platform like ABBYs.”
The campaigns are said to mirror the intent and quality of Star India content to not just entertain, but also empower. While the #NayiSoch campaign has challenged the stereotypical societal mind-set by bringing women to the forefront championed by heroes like the Indian cricket team and superstar Aamir Khan, ‘Bring Them Back’ has highlighted the issue of human trafficking; both, milestones in the network’s on-going mission to bring about critical and much needed societal change.
