Spikes Asia 2012, scheduled for 16 to 18 September in Singapore, has announced the Film, Print, Outdoor and Radio jury - one of ten juries that will vote on this year’s entries. Chaired by Amir Kassaei, chief creative officer, DDB Worldwide, the Film, Print, Outdoor and Radio jury is made up of 12 members from across the region including Ashish Chakravarty, executive creative director, McCann Worldgroup New Delhi, from India.
Commenting on the announcement, Philip Thomas, chief executive officer, Lions Festivals, said, “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.”
