Borgstrom_BBH_edited-1.jpgCommenting on the award BBH Singapore's Borgstrom (right) said, "Advertising is a powerful weapon, used well it can have a real impact in the world, it can change peoples minds and behaviours. Let's make sure we point it in the right direction."

Michael Knox on the other hand opines that, "Acknowledging the brands who use their powers for good while also achieving great commercial success is an important function of the APAC Tambuli Awards. It's like the perfect combination. It's equally inspiring to spend time with such a great list of people, working through the entries and finding the biggest ideas that worked the hardest."

The APAC Tambuli Awards is not an award on charity, advocacy, pro bono, or CSR advertising, even if those campaigns are welcome and encouraged to enter. The award, however, focuses on mainstream brand campaigns that celebrate humanity, inspire purpose, and deliver results.
