Nearly 300 creative minds were thrilled to meet and interact with peers in the Indian blogosphere and rub shoulders with some of the best creative minds across India. It was the second consecutive year when WIN ‘15 proved to be the best cauldron for magical ideas and thoughts to be exchanged at a common platform.
Organised by BlogAdda.Com – the largest community of bloggers in India; Write. Inspire. Network (WIN) is India’s largest blogging conference and awards ceremony. WIN ’15 was ably (and hilariously) hosted by ace emcee Siddharth Kannan. At WIN’15 there were excellent insightful sessions that revolved around blogging and content marketing by renowned dignitaries and authors including Lakshmi Pratury, Anaggh Desai, Sruthijith KK,Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Natasha Badhwar, Archana Doshi, Rezwan Islam, Prashant Challapalli and Harini Calamur to name a few.
WIN ’15 also had 4 interactive workshops, which packaged all the skills required for blogging – Creative Writing, Video Blogging and Monetizing your Blog – in 90 minutes sessions. These workshops were conducted by the best in the business – Ajay Jain of Kunzum, Satya Raghavan from YouTube, Nandita Iyer, Archana Doshi, and Natasha Badhwar, a Mint Lounge columnist.
The Game of Blogs book, the first collaborative blogging book to be published in India, was also unveiled to the world in a glittering ceremony graced by Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and Natasha Badhwar, who also discussed their blogging journeys in front of the audience. The title of the book is “6 Degrees”. The book contains three stories written by three winning teams of the Game of Blogs activity hosted earlier by BlogAdda.
The best blogs from all over India in 16 categories ranging from Fashion & Lifestyle to Political, Personal and Creative Writing were recognized and awarded at WIN’15. Winners included Sakshi Nanda (Creative Writing) Vikram Kambhoj (Humour and Satire), Sid Balachandran (Personal) and Priya Adiverakar (Entertainment). Greenstone Lobo, Anaggh Desai, Sonia Mackwani, Manu Prasad and Kiran Manral formed the panel of juries.
“WIN’15 made history by being the launchpad for the first ever collaborative blogging book 6 Degrees. In 2014 WIN was conceptualized to bring bloggers under one roof and make their presence felt to the world. The key idea was to provide a physical platform to bring together all the knowledge and learning about blogging and also recognizing and honouring the best of the blogs. After the roaring success of WIN ’14 and WIN ‘15, we expect to achieve new highs year on year,” Said Nirav Sanghavi, Founder and CEO of BlogAdda.com
