Roshni Kavina

In Roshni’s words :


“I have been working in the field of advertising for 4 and a half years now and it has been quite a ride so far. Besides all the long hours of work we put in for our regular clients we get our real kicks by doing work purely keeping the awards in mind. Cause that’s where we get recognition and can really explore and exhibit our skills.


I love my work and I love challenges. The one thing I have learnt is that there is no substitute for hard work and hard work always pays off.”


Attached is a list of all her awards till now with  a picture of some of her trophies and the other ones are of Roshni at Cannes with her work.

I’ve been sending work for the awards, both national and international since the past 3 years now and all 3 years I’ve been quite lucky, last year being the best. I was sent by my agency Saatchi & Saatchi to Cannes, to attend The Cannes Advertising Festival for a week and collect my award. I have 13 trophies and 18 merits, nominations so far. These include awards like The Cannes, The Oneshow, The Adfest and The Abby. These awards, merits and nominations also give me a good ratings as a creative person in India and also internationally.
