For the first time, Spikes Asia will award the Grand Prix for Good. This new trophy rewards work ineligible to win a Grand Prix in their sections because they are made for charities/not for profit or have charitable or public service messages. All such excluded gold winning entries will now be considered by the Integrated jury who will decide on the winner.

Elsewhere, the Creative Effectiveness category’s eligibility dates have been extended, broadening its scope to include previously shortlisted or awarded campaigns from the past three years.

Entries to Spikes Asia are now open. Further information on how to enter the awards, including category definitions and rules, fees and important dates can be found online at www.spikes.asia.
