Hina Issar Huria, director, Fulcrum Awards: “Indian communication professionals are evolving and like any other profession they need community recognition to excel further. The Fulcrums honour men and women who are pivotal to a campaign and are the backbone of the professional community. This is not just another award but the only awards system of its kind which maintains separation of jury, sponsors and participants to ensure utmost transparency. The Fulcrum Awards engages with PwC India as its Process Reviewer. This partnership is a one-of-its-kind in the communications business where a ‘Big Four’ firm is on board for due diligence for the entire selection process of the awards. This will set new standards in the awards process.”
