Entries are now open for the Fairfax Media Young Spikes Integrated and Young Spikes Media Competitions. Entries are due by 17 July and the two winning teams will be sent to Singapore to compete at the Asia Pacific region’s foremost creative communications festival, Spikes Asia.
This year, Fairfax Media is the official representative for Spikes Asia in New Zealand. Following consistent market feedback about the growing importance of regional campaigns, we have committed to sending two teams to compete in the Young Spikes Competitions and help promote Spikes Asia with the New Zealand industry.
Group Sales and Marketing Manager Sandra King says she’s excited to be getting involved in an increasingly important regional event. “Again and again CEOs and MDs at creative and media agencies are telling me that creativity and collaboration across the Asia-Pacific region have never been more important.
“As our long-standing commitment to the Cannes Lions has shown, we’re passionate about our industry and are keen to support it. One of the most exciting things about our new relationship with Spikes Asia is the ability to take two teams of our industry’s brightest up and comers to Singapore to compete in the Young Spikes competitions.”
