The second edition of Spikes Asia, since the Cannes Lions organisation took over the festival, is scheduled for September 19-21, 2010 at Suntec City, Singapore. Jury chair David Lubars has this to say about why he’s excited: “According to the Gunn Report, the most awarded print campaign on the planet last year was created by an agency in Malaysia. The Big Won named an agency in Japan as being the most awarded digital agency. And, as president of the ’09 Cannes Film and Press juries, I witnessed myself brilliant pieces coming from all points in Asia.
Steve Henry, founder and former creative director of Howell Henry Chaldecott Lury (HHCL) in London, has been named as this year’s new 2010 Grand Jury President for Adfest. Henry replaces Washington Olivetto, who will not be able to commit to Adfest’s new judging dates from 24 to 28 May 2010, after the festival was postponed earlier this year following the political situation in Thailand.
