The agency was appointed after a four-way shoot-out against JWT London, VCCP and CHI & Partners.

The incumbent, Beattie McGuinness Bungay, did not repitch.

Karmarama joins the Molson Coors roster and will start work immediately on an integrated campaign to launch in spring 2014.

Molson Coors spends £2.4 million on UK media for Cobra, according to Nielsen. This is expected to increase to above £3 million for the coming year.

Last year, Cobra launched the "Cobra train" campaign, created by BMB, showing a train travelling through the Indian landscape.
