Awards FAQs

Is my work eligible for Spikes Asia?

The entry must have been created within the context of a normal paying contract and genuine brief from a brand OR, if it’s a case of self-promotion or a non-profit organisation, the brand has approved all the media / production / implementation. More information here.

Eligibility dates are dependent on the Spikes Asia Award. Please check the eligibility criteria for each Spikes Asia Award on our Rules & Eligibility page.

When should I send my physical materials?

For Spikes Asia 2021, we are not able to accept physical materials. Instead, you can provide a demo film of the physical samples for the jury to experience.

We also are not able to accept printed proofs for Outdoor, Print & Publishing and Industry Craft, you will instead provide a digital version of the work.

I'm worried I won't be ready to submit my work before the deadline. Can I ask for more time?

Contact our Awards Experts to discuss how we can help you with your entry process.


Can I pay first and upload material later?

All media included in your entry must be the final version at the point that you complete and pay for them. No replacement or additional media can be accepted after an entry has been finalised and received by the Festival without exception.
