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. What sets us apart, in addition to tough standards, is that your entry fee provides invaluable funding for our annual educational programme, Kyoorius FYIday, stimulating the industry and more importantly, developing future generations of creative talent.

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.

In our continued efforts towards providing a truly neutral and ethical platform, our doors will remain open for professionals, media and the community as a whole to witness the jury session as it happens. We invite you to come in and watch the jury debate the entries, check out some of the best in Indian creativity, and much more.
