As an industry, today there is a need to recognise and award the Indian Media Agency Professional – to foster the growth of these professionals and hence the industry; to celebrate achievements of today and to ensure strong leaders of tomorrow.

Every year, the media service brands employs, trains and creates leaders who contribute to the Indian communication industry on the whole. Media agencies have turned to be catchment areas for clients and media owners as well in the last few years.
