Kancil Awards and Festival 2020 postponed

The Kancil Awards 2020 and the Kancil Creative Festival 2020 has been postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing global health crisis. 

Organised by the Association of Accredited Advertising Agents of Malaysia (4As), the Kancil Awards is Malaysia’s longest running advertising awards competition and is attended by major agencies and their creative heads. 

“The MCO period has been a difficult time for most agencies and there is a need to now focus on helping clients while ensuring that agency staff are well protected and remain safe and healthy,” said the Organising Chairman of Kancil Awards, Karthi Palasamy. “While various options were considered, including a fully virtual or hybrid event, in the end, the difficult decision was taken to postpone the Kancils till 2021.”

Since 2018, the Kancil Awards have been presented as the culmination of the Kancil Creative Festival, a two-day event that brings together thinkers and do-ers from a variety of disciplines, highlighting the wider creative world beyond the advertising industry. The Creative Festival includes exhibitions, mini workshops, dialogue sessions, and immersive experiences, all serving as a catalyst for a cross fertilisation of ideas, thoughts, and projects.

New dates for the Awards and the Creative Festival will be announced once it has been determined, together with the awards rules and eligibility requirements.
