WELCOME TO YOUNG SPIKES MALAYSIA 2021

Malaysia wins Best in Asia!

In 2019, the Young Spikes Malaysia Gold winning team went on to win the Best Digital team at Spikes Asia. So give your younger teams a chance for regional fame by entering this year.

I am particularly excited for Young Spikes Malaysia 2021 because this is where it all begins for the future masterminds of creative, marketing, digital, PR and media.

So what exactly is Young Spikes Malaysia?

To put it in the simplest of words – it’s ‘The Apprentice’ on steroids.

The Young Spikes Malaysia Competitions offer professionals from creative, marketing, digital, PR and media a unique chance to gain recognition and make their mark on the industry.

In teams of two, the entrants race against the clock to prepare a pitch for a charity or sponsor brief and win a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal.

Gold winners get to compete on the Asian stage in Young Spikes Asia Pacific Competition to be held in 2022.
