Cag Shield Cricket Tournament[edit]

The Cag Shield[5] is a cordial play of short matches between different agencies within the advertising fraternity. Cag developed a connection with individual designers by the awards and workshops or seminars but they wanted to grow bigger. To get agencies' interaction,[6] with each other and Cag, they started this sporty tradition and is continuing even today. This brings the agencies[7] to interact and open up to each other in a group activity apart from advertising.

Cag Annuals[edit]

First published in 1950, Cag Annuals were design magazines published yearly. They showcased advertising works in that particular year and also mentioned the Cag winners, Hall of Fame and Young Cags of that year. They also had the photographic record of the events in that year, especially the award show.
