Spikes Asia, the three-day Festival of Creativity in the Asia Pacific region, has today announced a record 5132 entries from 23 countries. Entries into Healthcare have seen a significant 72 per cent increase, with design (40%) and Direct (34%) also experiencing an upturn. A country-wise break-up of entries wasn’t available at the time of writing.

 

“Creativity in Asia Pacific continues to excel globally with three of the top 10 most awarded countries at this year’s Cannes Lions coming from the region. The growth in entries is reflective of the fantastic work coming from this creative community and Spikes Asia is a platform for this work to be celebrated”, says Terry Savage, Chairman of Lions Festivals. “This increase demonstrates just how important the region is becoming in the global creative communications sphere”, he added.

 

Prior to the Festival, which takes place from September 21 to 23 in Singapore, 98 industry experts will convene to judge the work and award the most creative with the Spikes accolade across 20 categories.

 

Meanwhile, there was no Indian shortlist in the Innovation category that was released today (Sep 16).
