Harmandar ‘Ham’ Singh, Publisher of Marketing Magazine joins Melisa Idris on ‘The Brand’ to look at developing the next generation of creative talent through competitions like the Young Spikes Malaysia 2019.


Don’t fret everyone, the Young Spikes deadline has been extended to the 15th of July 2019! The chance to enter Young Spikes Malaysia 2019 has been extended, and one can win trips to Spikes Asia in Singapore too!

It’s not often that you see brands like AirAsia, Astro, Unifi and QSR coming together for a celebration of creativity in communications.

It promises to be an event like no other.

The transformational shift that is going through the Asian creative industry is nothing short of extraordinary.

Jaw dropping technological innovations and domestic brands disrupting the local status quo have done their part in empowering the APAC creative industry to make their own mark.

Young Spikes is a tribute to that mission, and the chance for entrants to showcase their most exceptional work is an incredible opportunity to be part of the creative ecosystem.

This is a platform for outstanding creativity to be celebrated.

Young Spikes is the perfect place to bring together creative thinkers and doers in an environment that thrives on inspiration, learning, networking and revelry.

Ultimately, there are chances to win trips to Spikes Asia which will be held from 25th to 27th September 2019 at Suntec, Singapore.

Integrated, Media and Digital category winners will also get an exclusive all-expenses-paid passes to turn their ideas alive at the Reconnect Camp by Astro on Aug 24-25 at Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa.

Spikes Asia offers an inspirational setting to hear thought-provoking, agenda setting talks on the topics that matter to communications today from the people leading the change.

It is also a great way to connect. Participants will get to know a diverse community of brand, agency and world leaders, innovators, tech entrepreneurs, brilliant creatives and many more in a laid-back setting.

Of course, Spikes Asia is all about showing off the creativity you need to see, setting the benchmark for brilliant work in the APAC creative communications industry each year.
