Spikes Asia announced the jury for Film, Print, Outdoor and Radio


Spikes Asia, the regional creative advertising and communications festival for Asia Pacific, announced the Film, Print, Outdoor and Radio Jury – the first of ten juries that will vote on this year’s entries.

Chaired by Amir Kassaei, Chief Creative Officer of DDB Worldwide, the jury includes 12 award-winning creatives from across the region:

  • Amir Kassaei, Chief Creative Officer of DDB Worldwide, Global – Jury President
  • Ashish Chakravarty, Chief Creative Officer, McCann Worldgroup, India
  • Brian Capel, Executive Creative Director, Leo Burnett, Indonesia
  • David Guerrero, Chairman & Chief Creative Officer, BBDO Guerrero, The Philippines
  • Francis Wee, Executive Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather, China
  • Gigi Lee, Executive Creative Director, Y&R, Malaysia
  • Hye Jin Won, Senior Group Creative Director, Innocean, South Korea
  • Kentaro Kimura, Creative Director/Co-Chief Executive Officer, Hakuhodo Kettle, Japan
  • Matty Burton, Executive Creative Director, Whybin\TBWA\Tequila, Australia
  • Piya Churakpong, Executive Creative Director, Lowe Worldwide, Thailand
  • Steve Elrick, Regional Executive Creative Director, BBH Asia Pacific, Regional
  • Tay Guan Hin, Regional Executive Creative Director, SE Asia, JWT, Regional


This is a very strong jury line-up befitting the high calibre of work that no doubt will be judged at Spikes Asia this year. Whilst Asia-Pacific agencies are doing well at international awards, it’s at regional awards such as Spikes Asia where more of the work will shine putting the spotlight on the region, its agencies and the creators of the work.
