Unlike any other awards in India, the Kyoorius Awards have no winning tier structure of gold, silver & bronze – all the best work is awarded a Blue Elephant.

A specialist jury, selected together with D&AD and composed of the top creatives from across the world, will judge all submitted entries according to the Kyoorius and D&AD awards criteria.

All jury members will gather in India for the jury session to review, discuss and elect the best of the best over three intensive days. All voting is private, never by a show of hands.

During the judging process, the jury will base their decision on three criteria, reviewing if the entry is

  • an original and inspiring idea
  • well-executed
  • relevant to its context

In the categories relating to craft, work is judged first on the strength of the craft, then on how it contributes to the success of the idea.
