In its ninth year, the Kyoorius DesignYatra aims to 'Create Change'. Expected to be attended by over 1350 delegates, the three day conference will feature two firsts - the DigiYatra, as well as the Kyoorius Awards.
The DigiYatra will be held on 29 August, or the first day of the festival, and is dedicated to digital media. Speakers include social media giant Facebook and agencies like LBi and Fjord. The same night will also host the Kyoorius Awards, which have been founded in association with D&AD. Over 70 entries have been shortlisted across 12 categories, each vying for a Kyoorius Elephant - yes, that's what the awards will be called. The DesignYatra will feature luminaries like Pentagram's Natasha Jen, Leo Burnett's KV 'Pops' Sridhar, and the 27 year old design prodigy Jessica Walsh.
