Dentsu Aegis Network’s digital and social media agency WATConsult won 6 metals across Advocacy, Mobile, Social Media, Health and Wellness categories at the Asia Pacific Tambuli Awards, 2019.
It won a gold and a silver metal for its #KidsNotForSale campaign created for Snapdeal and Save the Children (NGO), in Advocacy category under the Humanity and Culture Cluster, and in the social media category respectively.
Its #PowerlessQueen campaign too bagged a silver metal in the Advocacy category along with two bronze metals — 1 each in mobile and social media categories. Its suicide-prevention campaign, Give Subtitles to Suicide, also bagged a bronze in the Health and Wellness category.
With a total of 6 wins, WATConsult’s tally was the biggest from India at the Asia Pacific Tambuli Awards 2019. These three campaigns are also contenders at Cannes Lions 2019.
The Asia Pacific Tambuli Awards recognize creative and effective brands, and began in Manila in 2005 and opened to the Asia Pacific region in 2012. The Tambuli awards (incidentally, Tambuli is a native Filipino horn) are organized by the School of Communication of the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) in collaboration with industry partners.
