The annual Pepper Creative Awards function, organized by the Pepper Creative Awards Trust has been called off. The decision to this effect has been taken in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, said K. Venugopal, Chairman, Pepper Trust. Pepper Awards came into being 13 years ago, and since then we are the No.1 creative awards in South India and would only be second to Goa Fest nationally . The most critical reason why we have been able to grow and sustain ourselves has been the quality and the credentials of our judges. We certainly hope that the current situation will give way and we would emerge stronger and better to conduct the awards with all its grandeur , said Venugopal.

Of course, Pepper is greater than advertising. If there was no pepper, Columbus wouldn't have sailed and gone searching for India. He wouldn't have stumbled on to the shores of America, said hello to Chief Sitting Bull of the Red Indians, and inspired people to settle across the land. He also wouldn't have shot all the buffalo, laid railway lines, set up trading posts, sparked o industrialization, created all sorts of products, thought of marketing, discovered the power of advertising, founded Madison Avenue, established the culture of awards, exported all of that to India, made Indian advertising participate in award shows, and eventually triggered the birth of Pepper Awards in the capital of spices. As you can now see, logically and without much exaggeration, Pepper easily establishes itself as the prime reason why advertising began in the first place. And why we truly believe it's seriously greater than advertising.No pepper, no advertising. Simble.
