The Young Spikes Competition for 2014 is nearing its entry deadline. So make use of this weekend to send in your entries.
The competition is open to those under 28 years of age (born after 26 September 1985), and employed in an advertising/communications business, in a skill discipline relevant to the competition.
Courtesy The Times of India Group, winners of the Indian leg will be sponsored to represent the country at Spikes Asia 2014 in Singapore from 23 to 26 September. This would be for the Young Spikes Media and Integrated categories.
Entries will be judged in two phases. A preliminary jury will pick finalists, who will make presentations before a 'final jury' in the first week of August in Mumbai. The judging process will be overseen by Ernst & Young, process partners of Young Spikes.
The theme for this year’s Young Spikes Integrated Competition is ‘Stop Unnecessary and Incessant Honking on Roads’. The final jury for Integrated includes Josy Paul, Arun Iyer, Senthil Kumar and Malvika Mehra.
For the Young Spikes Media Competition, the theme is ‘Naked Overhead Wires, a Threat to Life’. Media competition jurors will include Nandini Dias, S Yesudas and Ravi Rao.
Contestants from India wishing to enter the Media and Integrated competitions can apply online at timesimagine.com on or before 27 July 2014.
Young Spikes contests follow a 24-hour competition format. Besides integrated and media strategy contests, organisers have introduced a new category Young Spikes Digital Competition. There is also a Student Creative Award for Print.
