Spikes Asia 2014 calls for entries
The Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity is now open for entries across 18 categories. The 2014 edition of the awards will be part of the Festival that runs from 23 to 26 September.
 
Emad Tahtouh, director of Applied Technology, Finch, Australia; and June Laffey, ECD, McCann Health, Australia; have been announced as jury presidents. They will head the inaugural Innovation and Healthcare categories respectively.
 
Tahtouh said,, “Innovation and Technology are quickly becoming a necessity in our industry. Helping to shape and define the standard we choose to judge the best pieces of work with is a tremendous challenge, and I’m excited and honoured to be a part of it.”
 
Laffey said, “The fact that Spikes Asia is extending into the healthcare industry is both important and exciting. Innovative, creative, game-changing solutions in the health/pharma space don't just have the potential to win in a world-class festival such as Spikes, they have the ability to change and save lives. So a credible awards competition such as Spikes that encourages and recognises creativity in this area can only be a good thing.”
 
Terry Savage, CEO, Lions Festivals, added, “We are delighted to be able to announce jury presidents of such high calibre in line with Spikes Asia opening for entries. It is fantastic that the first ever Innovation and Healthcare categories will be judged by such formidable professionals as Emad and June.”
 
The award categories are: Branded Content & Entertainment, Creative Effectiveness, Design, Digital, Direct, Film, Film Craft, Healthcare, Innovation, Integrated, Media, Mobile, Outdoor, PR, Print, Print & Poster Craft, Promo & Activation and Radio. Winners of this year’s awards will be revealed at the annual awards ceremony in Singapore on 26 September. The deadline for entry submissions is 25 July.
 
All the shortlisted work will be on display through exhibitions and screenings throughout the Festival.
