Young Spikes Competition and the Spikes Academy are open for registration

Calling all young creative talent: Make your mark on the industry.

For creatives aged 30 or under and employed in advertising and communications businesses in a skill discipline relevant to their chosen competition, the Young Spikes Competitions provide Asia Pacific’s next generation of young creative talent a unique chance to gain recognition and make their mark on the industry.

These are the three Young Spikes competitions for 2024:

Teams have to come up with a fully integrated campaign in response to a brief before demonstrating how it can be launched and executed.

Teams must create an integrated, digital led campaign, explaining how the use of technology answers the brief in a creative way. The objective is to show how the power of digital technology can answer the Competition Partners challenge.

Teams will be required to create an innovative PR campaign in response to the brief given by the competition partner.

Teams of two are required to submit a piece of work answering to the competition brief (for the Integrated competition, teams of two or three are welcome). The work will be judged and scored by a panel of creative communications experts.
