Spikes Asia registered an all time high number of entries, with close to 4,900 entries from 23 countries received across festival’s 16 categories .
The festival kicks off on Sunday in Singapore and will welcome industry professionals from 27 countries.
With an overall 33% increase versus last year, the categories which have shown the highest increase are PR, Design, Mobile, Film Craft, Direct and Promo & Activation. The top countries participating are Australia (703 entries), followed by India (694), Japan (594), Singapore (524), China (448) and Thailand (411).
This extraordinary growth in the number of entries this year is not only testament to the importance of Spikes Asia to the creative community in Asia Pacific, but is also an endorsement of the great work being produced in the region which will ultimately reverberate around the world (…) We await with great anticipation the juries’ decision, which no doubt will provide inspiration and insight, taking creativity in brand communications to another level.
Co-Chairman Spikes Asia.
The winners of Spikes Asia will be announced during a ceremony scheduled for September 18th.
