The Diwali season is a time to be thankful for all the good things your life has. The thing about Diwali is that there are no rules about what you can do with it; you can just go full-on hamster wheel if that's your thing! Let’s go back in the year 2021 and take a look at 10 of the most creative Diwali campaigns that prove that sometimes, a little bit of creativity can go a long way.
The one who didn't forget the small businesses that suffered as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. Cadbury worked with AI technology and superstar Shah Rukh Khan to develop commercials according to the pin codes of the business in an effort to support local companies. All of our hearts were definitely touched by Cadbury and its deliciousness.
Diwali is not about the stuff under the lamp. It's all about celebrating, giving, and, most importantly, helping others. This HDFC advertisement encourages everyone to take a step toward realising, helping and supporting the aspirations of those who help us every day.
Diwali is the season of celebrating love, family and friendship.

Well, Amazon Prime stepped up its marketing game by showing us that Diwali is not just about the brands and their products but the importance of the festival itself. Amazon Prime urges people to put down their televisions and electronic devices and go out to celebrate with their loved ones in person. This was something we all needed to hear in this digital age.
Diwali isn't just for you and your family. It's also for the poor on the streets, the vendors surrounding you, the small businesses, and everyone else. However, being Indians, we can't help but bargain, can we? Axis Bank urges customers to put off bargaining in order to light up the Diwali of smaller firms and vendors.

Creativity is everything. If there's one thing that took centre stage this Diwali, it's the fact that in order to win out over your competitors on social media, you need to be inventive, you need to be bold, and most of all—you need to catch people off guard. Overall, it's fair to say that our hearts were very impressed with the creativity shown last Diwali. We're bound to see even more interesting campaigns this year. Social media has changed the game of marketing, and big brands are taking notice. It will be exciting to see how companies will keep up with Diwali this year-2022.
