The Womb’s Kawal Shoor, the co-founder, had this to say about the victories: Effectiveness awards are the ones that matter to us. And winning an APAC EFFIE Award is quite an achievement as your entry competes with the best in Asia and Australia/NZ. And then to win gold is something great. And then to win two Golds for the country makes us super proud. And to top, it all, to finish amongst the Top 2 independents in Asia!
