- September 28,2019 By IndianTelevision Team
MUMBAI : Dentsu Webchutney, the creatively-led digital agency from the house of Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN), has once again emerged as the most awarded Indian agency, this time at Spikes Asia 2019. The agency has bagged a total of 20 metals - seven Bronze, seven Silver, five Gold and yes, a Grand Prix!
And it is only in June this year when Dentsu Webchutney decided to claw into its maiden yet lion’s share in India’s awards tally at Cannes Lions with 17 shortlists, 1 Silver and 5 Bronze Lions. It also emerged with the Black Elephant and the highest tally of Elephants overall at the Kyoorius 2019, the same month. Not to forget, with 40 metals in its kitty, the agency was named the ‘Digital, PR and Direct Specialist of the Year’ at the Goafest Abbys, 2019 edition.
Ashish Bhasin, CEO APAC and Chairman India – Dentsu Aegis Network says, “Goafest, Cannes, Kyoorius and now Spikes! Dentsu Webchutney has surfaced as leaders across all. What an incredible performance this has been and thus, a culmination of our focus on creative. I feel absolutely fantastic. Dentsu Webchutney’s wins this year only stand to be a testimony to its outstanding brilliance. This is a new benchmark and also signals the beginning of the end of legacy creative agencies that are struggling to adapt to the changing environment.”
Sidharth Rao, co-founder and CEO, Dentsu Webchutney said, “I am absolutely elated. Our bold bets have finally paid off and I feel fantastic. We have said this before, awards or not, digital will force traditional advertising to be transformed into a more capable service provider. We've been watching from the sidelines all this while and in a way, it's our time. I'm just glad that it happened to be Dentsu Webchutney showing the way. It's a milestone that one digital agency had to cross - it would've happened anyway, but I'm happy to see how Dentsu Webchutney has catalysed it. You'll see more and more of this going forward."
