Aparna Sundaresh, Global Brand Development Director for Paddlepop and Max at Unilever and Jury President for Effectiveness awards, comments, "We live in exciting times indeed, with an overdose of 'moreness' - more data, more channels and even more communication platforms. The ideas that challenge the norm and transform businesses are still the simplest, most meaningful ones that start with a relevant insight and carry that clarity through the brand strategy. The best campaigns ace the balancing act of protecting the simplicity & underlying purpose of an idea whilst amplifying it through a clear consumer journey, in order to translate to business results. I am very excited to see the best that Asia has to offer today and look forward to being inspired, challenged and amazed!"

Winners will be honoured at the Awards Ceremony, held after the Asian Marketing Effectiveness & Strategy Conference on the evening of 31 May 2016 at Grand Hyatt Singapore.
