Young Spikes

Discovering Asia Pacific’s Fresh Talent

The head table and winners

The Young Spikes Competitions provide Asia Pacific’s next generation of creative talent the opportunity to showcase their skills.

The teams are chosen through a pre-selection process in each country after which the national winners participate in the Young Spikes Competitions held during the Spikes Asia Festival.

Competitors should be aged 28 years or under and must be employed in advertising/communications businesses in a skill discipline relevant to their chosen competition.

The winning teams will be presented with gold medals at the Spikes Asia Awards Ceremony. They will also receive full delegate passes to the Spike Asia Festival in the following year. Winning the competitions is highly rewarding because it provides opportunities for individuals to gain recognition within the industry and to make their mark across Asia Pacific
