APPIES 2021 judging sessions this weekend open to public for free viewing

For the first time ever, organizers of APPIES Malaysia 2021 announced that the live judging sessions happening on 22 and 23 May will be free for public viewing via the official awards website.

Split between both days, close to 90 finalized case studies will be presented to a panel of over 30 judges to decide if the campaign deserves a spot in the various award categories.

“When I say APPIES ‘festival’, I mean this is the time for you to see Malaysia’s best marketing campaign, up close,” said Chairman of APPIES Malaysia, Harmandar Singh. ”There’s no other show that lets you witness real marketing campaigns presented by the brains behind it and this year I t’s only live online from 9am to about 3pm, so don’t miss your chance.”

Audiences who wish to witness the live judging can do so by heading to to view the full schedule for 22 & 23 May. The schedule is designed to help the audience decide which campaign presentations they would like to watch by clicking on the campaign names to view the official campaign video. Then the audience may click “Enter Room” to join the elected judging recession based on the schedule. Audiences are allowed to leave the room at any time and enter another room (there are 4 rooms each day) to watch a different campaign presentation according to the schedule.

“I want to thank all the judges who will be working very hard in the process of selecting not only the best campaigns but also best presenter under 30 and above 30,” Harmandar said. ”I also want to thank the sponsors who made all this possible and thank You for attending the live presentations this weekend.”
