“Creativity without borders”, early entry deadline July 15, 2022.

The One Club for Creativity has opened the call for entries for the One Asia Creative Awards 2022, and announced the show will now be included as part of the club’s Global Creative Rankings.

Entry fees increase after each deadline period. Early entry deadline is July 15, 2022, with the regular deadline August 19, 2022, and the final deadline September 16, 2022.

After years of running The One Show Greater China, the club expanded the scope of the awards last year to include all of Asia Pacific as the One Asia Creative Awards. Entries were received from 17 countries and regions in APAC, with winners representing 14.

Among the big winners last year was Ogilvy Pakistan Islamabad, which was named One Asia Agency of the Year and took home Best of Show for “Naming the Invisible by Digital Birth Registration” on behalf of Telenor Pakistan, who was named Client of the Year and picked up the CMO Award for the work.

Some changes were made to this year’s awards, most significant being inclusion of One Asia as part of The One Club’s renowned Global Creative Rankings for 2023. One Asia awards won by agencies and brands will now gain them international recognition in their own right, and contribute as appropriate to network and holding company global rankings totals. Specific points for each win will be announced shortly.

The call for entries is supported by a campaign using the theme “Creativity without borders”, in recognition of how agencies and brands have overcome the challenges of the pandemic to create powerful work. One Asia 2022 is also the chance for creatives all across APAC to come together and celebrate creative excellence from the region.

“The One Show Greater China Awards grew significantly in stature since starting in 2014, and we were excited last year to transform it into the One Asia Creative Awards,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club. “The region is responsible for some amazing creative work, and a unique passion for innovation. One Asia recognizes the best creatives, designers and innovators in all of APAC, and serves as a great fusion of cultures that brings the creativity of the region to the global stage.”

“After expanding The One Show Greater China Program to the whole Asia Pacific region with The One Show Asia Showcase in 2020, we launched One Asia Creative Awards last year to elevate the work of unique Asian cultures,” said Ma Chao, Chief Representative, The One Club Asia office. “Using The One Show’s best-in-class judging standards and platform, One Asia inspired the industry by showcasing the best creative works in Asia Pacific on the global stage.”

 

Having impressed the audience and the judges with his mesmerizing performances in DID L’il Masters Season 5, Nobojit took home the coveted trophy

Over the last three decades, Zee TV has been instrumental in providing the Indian youth with a global platform to showcase their singing, dancing, and acting talent. The channel's most iconic dance reality show, Dance India Dance, revolutionized the landscape of dance in the country when it first began to air in 2009. Over the last 13 years, the platform has stood testimonial to the sheer passion and love that India holds in its heart towards dance, giving several spirited dancers a chance to showcase their talent. This year again, the channel gave young kids an opportunity to display their love for dance as it launched DID L'il Masters Season 5. Thousands of kids auditioned to be a part of the show and exhibit their talent, but only a handful made it to the Grand Premiere episode. The top 15 went on to dance their hearts out, impressing one and all in the process. And now, after a successful run of three months full of dance and entertainment, DID L’il Masters culminated with a Fantastic Finale on 26th June 2022.

To support the top 5 contestants during the Fantastic Finale, the star cast of Jug Jugg Jeeyo - Anil Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Varun Dhawan, Prajakta Kohli, and Maniesh Paul appeared on the show and we have to say that they brought the house down with their funny antics, intriguing anecdotes, and enchanting dance moves. All the celebrity guests along with the DID L’il Masters judges – Remo D’Souza, Sonali Bendre, and Mouni Roy also cheered the top 5 contestants to give their best during their finale acts.

The reality show has given several talented kids a platform to showcase their talent and I am really happy that I could also display my dancing skills and win everyone’s heart.

This is such a well-deserved win that was possible because of the amount of hard work, dedication and passion that he/she put in every day. While we crowned a champion today, in my mind and heart, every one of our contestants is a winner because the passion and talent they have is truly incredible. I hope to see them grow and excel outside of this show. I have had such an amazing time with my fellow judges, the incredible contestants, skippers, and our fabulous crew. I am carrying back so many memories and lasting friendships.”

Judge Mouni Roy shared, "Nobojit has been one of the strongest contenders amongst all the talented contestants that we came across, and it is truly his/her hard work and zeal to win that has enabled him/her to win the title today. While I am thrilled with his/her victory, I am also pleased to see that each contestant has grown through this platform and come a long way from where they began. I am sure they all have a bright future ahead of them and I wish the best for each one of them!"

While the fantastic 5 finalists - Sagar, Nobojit, Appun, Adhyashree, and Rishita gave awe-inspiring performances, the fantastic finale of DID L’il Masters was also packed with some breath-taking performances and power-packed acts by the ex-contestants of this season. In fact, the Fantastic Finale episode commenced with power-packed performances by the Top-15 contestants of the show, along with their skippers - Vartika Jha, Vaibhav Ghuge, and Paul Marshal.

Catch Badhaai Do on &pictures on 25th June at 8pm

Oh, the unfathomable things we do for the family! This month, get ready to witness the crazy wedding and the complicated tale of Sumi and Shardul with the channel premiere of Badhaai Do on &pictures on 25th June at 8pm. Like all our families, their family is an epitome of inquisitiveness as well. While the couple ties the knot only to please them, what follows is a bundle of slice of life moments that newly married couples can completely relate to. Wrapped with engaging humour and family drama Badhaai Do highlights the significance of acceptance and privacy in a typical Indian household. With Badhaai Do, this Saturday, the celebration will be doubled on Saturday Premiere Party where &pictures premieres new movies on the channel every Saturday night.

Talking about the film Rajkummar Rao says "Taking on roles that swim against the flow and curate a niche for itself is a process that enriches you as a person. Cinema is the window to a reality we hope to achieve or normalise and films such as Badhaai Do is a mindful step towards it. It has personally affected my outlook towards situations. It was a conscious decision to keep characters like Sumi and Shardul as real as possible in order to build a sense of familiarity among the viewers. The way those two own their choices and set course of their relationship independent of their family's expectations is something our youth today highly relates to. And Badhaai Do encourages this unconventional yet traditional way of life as it can be."

The phenomenon of “shaadi karlo 30 saal ke hogaye ho” is as diabolical as rebelling against it. There are two ways it’s either marriage before 30 or staying single forever. However, Shardul and Sumi discover the 3rd route to the ultimate marriage mayhem.

"Badhaai Do is a film that has the potential to speak to a large audience with its unbiased stance on love and acceptance. While the tone of the film is humorous, it embraces the courage and spirit that fuels personal choices. Be it choosing an unconventional career or partner, we are seeing the world evolving to be more accepting and open-minded of these decisions. And Badhaai Do is a carefully written film that advocates this thought and exists to resonate with today's young'uns.", adds Bhumi Pednekar.

After an unsuccessful attempt by his family to fix his marriage alliance, Shardul Thakur (Rajkummar Rao), a cop, comes across Sumi Singh (Bhumi Pednekar), a physical education teacher. The two enter into holy matrimony to appease their families. While their respective families are elated to see their kids finally settling down, there's a catch! What follows next is a series of comical errors which ultimately lead to a heart-warming message.

So, bring in your badhaais and be a part of Shardul and Sumi’s wedding with &pictures premiere of Badhaai Do on 25th June at 8pm!
