About The Event




The MET Institute of Mass Media is one of the best institutes for mass media and has succeeded in creating equity nationally. To mark the effort towards this winning path of change, MET has pioneered ‘METamorphosis’- a professional media event. METamorphosis, since its origin has transformed into  Mumbai’s unbeaten mass media event, giving  students an ideal exposure, moulding them into future media professionals.

It all started in 2009 on a lighter note with ‘Comedy Festickle’ which was followed by ‘Game Changers’ in 2010 and the heart warming ‘Dil Se India’ in 2011. Last year captured a change of everyday media through ‘METamorphosis of Mr. Idea’.

In its fifth year, METamorphosis 2013 scheduled on the 19th, 20th & 21st of December highlights the theme – ‘Between the Mind’, which is all about the analytical and logical ‘Left Brained thinkers’ and the creative and artistic ‘Right Brained thinkers’, teaming up to find the perfect formula and strike the perfect balance. For ages, there has been a tussle between creativity and logic. Be it any aspect of media, the combination of both of these is what brings out the final idea. A culmination of both the aspects, ‘Between the Mind’ where creativity meets logic.

Over the years METamorphosis has witnessed many a media stalwart from the industry - Salman Khan, John Abraham, Ravi Deshpande, Former Chairman & CCO – Contract Advertising, , Anu Malik,  Boney Kapoor, Rohit Shetty, Arun Iyer, NCD- Lowe Lintas, Nagesh Kukunoor, Filmmaker, Shekhar Ravjiani, Music Director, Sanjay Gadhvi, Director, Rajeev Khandelwal etc. METamorphosis’13 will witness many more leading celebrities from the mass media industry.

MET Institute of Mass Media is India’s leading premiere M school and has continuously ranked amongst the best Mass Media Institutes. It trains students to look beyond the obvious and its pedagogy provides them with the best possible, industry-specific education. MET Institute of Mass Media adheres to international standards, with world-class infrastructure. The emphasis is more on practical training rather than theory and learning by rote.
