Spikes Asia 2023: 12 from India on jury

Spikes Asia has announced its full jury lineup for 2023, following the unveiling of its jury presidents earlier this year. No fewer than 110 industry experts from across Asia-Pacific have been selected to serve on the 15 juries that make up the region's most prestigious and coveted creativity and marketing effectiveness awards programme across multiple categories.


As this year's jurors return to in-person judging in Singapore for the first time since 2019, new representation from global brands such as TikTok and Reckitt will be included for the first time, as well as Spikes' first juror from Cambodia. 


“The Spikes Asia Awards set the future focus of the industry and we are delighted to welcome such esteemed jury members to represent the Spikes Awards in 2023 and ensure that the creative benchmark for Asia Pacific is set," said Spikes Asia's events director Jenny Lau.  To resume in-person judging this year truly amplifies the judging experience for each jury member. We are extremely grateful to our jurors for their time, dedication and expertise and look forward to welcoming them back to Singapore.”
