DDB Singapore and Ogilvy & Mather Thailand also picked up an award each in the Business Services and Pro Bono categories.

Sridhar Ramaswamy, director of retail marketing at Lenovo and the chief judge for the event said the quality of this year’s work “was amazing”. “Appies is about effectiveness and the winning work really represents that.” This year’s work also saw a lot more collaboration between the client side and the agency, he added.
