Anita Nayyar, CEO, Havas Media Group, India and South Asia:
“An online judging process, true to the digital environment and rightfully so. Good and diverse entries made the process interesting and unearthed the vastness of the digital domain.” 

Sandip Tarkas, Consultant, Future Group & Future Media, India:
“The process was transparent and the online site was easy to use. That made viewing the entries and scoring very easy, however, jury discussions are an important aspect that we missed and we must ensure that jury discussions do take place, even if on a conference call.”
