The Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity is now open for entries for its 2013 awards. Entries are being accepted in a total of 16 categories: Film, Print, Outdoor, Radio, Media, Direct, Promo & Activation, Digital, Print & Poster Craft, Film Craft, Design, PR, Mobile, Integrated, Branded Content & Entertainment and Creative Effectiveness. Nine juries will be present in Singapore, home to Spikes Asia, to judge and award work entered from across the region. Winners of this year’s awards will be revealed and honoured at the annual awards ceremony, bringing the Festival to a close on Tuesday 17 September.
“It’s exciting opening for entries for a new year. We get to see the trends and initiatives that are coming out of the region; a region that is currently experiencing huge growth and development, setting the creative bar high. It will be interesting to see who emerges as the winners of Spikes Asia 2013,” Terry Savage, Chairman of Lions Festivals.
A number of special accolades will be presented, including Network of the Year, Independent Agency of the Year, Spikes Asia Agency of the Year, Media Agency of the Year and the Spikes Palm Award, which is given to the most awarded production company. The Spikes Asia Advertiser of the Year, given to clients who have distinguished themselves by the quality of their campaigns or who inspire innovative marketing of their products or services, will also be honoured on stage.
The Media Agency of the Year Award has been realigned so that only a media agency will be eligible to win the award. Advertising agencies, clients, media owners and others can continue to enter and win a Spikes Media award but they cannot compete for the Media Agency of the Year honour.
All shortlisted work will be on display through exhibitions and screenings throughout the festival, offering attendees the chance to see a showcase of the best work currently coming out of the Asia Pacific region.
Anyone wishing to enter the awards can find further information on how to submit, along with rules and fees at http://www.spikes.asia. Any entries made after 19 July will be subject to a late fee charge. Spikes Asia takes place from 15 -17 September at Suntec Singapore.
