The PAS Awards 2015 are all about celebrating and honoring the most effective communications that ran in Pakistan during 2014. In its 5th year now, the Award program rolled out at a local café where advertising and marketing fraternity gathered to find out what is new this year.
Aly Mustansir, Chairman PAS Awards Committee welcomed the guests to the briefing session and apprised them of how PAS aspires to raise the bar of standard each year and how the program developed step by step over the years. New elements of the programme include a “lifetime achievement award” that PAS has initiated this year.
Identifying and rewarding great work of people from the advertising/marketing industry, it would bring any one of copywriters, visualizers, producers, strategist, brand ambassadors or marketers in the limelight. The idea is to acknowledge tremendously great work being done in the industry.
