The Grand Effie was awarded to Havas Worldwide and Child Survival India for their campaign “No Child Brides”.

Awards Chairman Jarek Ziebinski said, “’Awarding Ideas that Work’ may sound like a simple concept but winning an APAC Effie is more than just an accolade. It is an affirmation of being the best in the Asia Pacific region, a true recognition of an agency’s expertise in delivering marketing campaigns that work and achieve results. This is the core reason our creative industry exists.  It also further validates a successful two-way collaboration between clients and agencies and the synergies that arise from it”.

The APAC Effie Awards is organised by the Confederation of Asian Advertising Agency Associations (CAAAA) and Tenasia Group. Mr Harris Thajeb, CAAAA Chairman said, “ We are impressed with the high quality of work submitted.  The Asia Pacific region has again proven its relevance by continuing to improvise and explore new ways through the use of new technologies and fresh ideas to create an impact in their marketing communications and it is through this celebration that we honour marketing effectiveness excellence and recognise the success of these marketing campaigns”.

The winners and finalists will be accorded points that will add to their ranking in the Effie Effectiveness Index (http://www.effieindex.com), the world’s most prestigious ranking of effective marketers, brands, agency holding groups, agency networks, agency offices and independent agencies.
