Thanks @dhruvwali for the great initiative my first 2 cents for the thread
let us think and share one ad campaign that is close to our heart and what are the facts behind the ad campaign
Lead india campaign:
The man behind Lead India - Agnello Dias, national creative director, JWT India - attributes the campaign's success to many things coming together in a remarkable coincidence . "There was a strong sentiment bubbling below the national consciousness ," he says. "India being under the global spotlight and being seen at the forefront of the world economy triggered off the tidal wave of response that we received. It was something that was waiting to be tapped."
With Lead India having won hearts locally, the creators of the campaign are now nursing the ambition of making it one of India's Titanium Lion contenders at this year's Cannes Advertising Festival . "The world's largest democracy sets out to find its own future leader armed with nothing more than the will of the people and an advertising campaign. It is indeed a proud moment for most of us who decided to choose advertising as a career. If the Indian ad industry can forget all its minor differences and champion for the whole campaign internationally , I will be incredulous and grateful," admits Dias. It's going to be far from easy, though, points out Joshi, who has been on Cannes juries before and will head the Outdoor jury at Cannes Lions 2008. "Awards are very dicey.
There needs to be an understanding among the jury about the significance of the campaign in the country that it's been done for, and the background of the country," he says. Yet, Joshi has some tips on what it takes for global award juries to see the merit of a strong but local idea. "Familiarise the jury about the country, give them the work with proper context and reference, and then it will make them understand better," is his advice.
Whether Lead India will lead India to its first Titanium Lion is dependant on many variables. The good and important news is that the campaign has already qualified in the test of moving an entire nation. If it ends up moving an award jury as well, it's a neat little bonus.

Thanks for creating this thread @dhruvwali ...your initiatives have been super! :)
