Together with D&AD, a specialist jury panel has been selected comprising some of the best and most inspirational creative professionals from around the world. All jury members will gather in Mumbai 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 members will base their decision on three criteria, reviewing if the entry is –

1) an original and inspiring idea
2) well executed
3) relevant to its context

In the category 9, Design Craft, work is judged first on the strength of the craft, then on how it contributes to the success of the idea.

We understand that each entry is unique and is a reflection of local culture and nuances. Kyoorius, D&AD and IAA India Chapter are working closely on defining a clear process and understanding of India for the jury members. Additionally, our jury has been carefully selected keeping this understanding and exposure in mind – and to reward the best in design – for India.
