Spikes award-winning ideas should be celebrated, and we don’t think it’s an appropriate time for that right now.

We’re grateful to all of your teams who have already spent a great deal of time on this year’s awards and the event. Their efforts won’t go wasted.

Work eligible for the 2020 festival will be judged at the 2021 festival which will have a two-year eligibility period. Spikes Awards and Tangrams Strategy & Effectiveness Awards will be held in 2021 in Singapore and new dates will be announced shortly.

We look forward to celebrating and honouring the work – and bringing the community together again when the world will hopefully be a more stable and optimistic place.

We look forward to welcoming back the region’s top brands and the creative industries to celebrate the best of APAC’s creativity.

Film

The Film Spikes celebrates the creativity of the moving image.

Entries will need to demonstrate brilliant brand storytelling intended for a screen. That is, filmed content created for TV, cinema, online and out-of-home experiences.

Criteria considered during judging will predominantly be the idea and the execution.

There is no overall limit to how many times the same piece of work can be entered into Film as long as the categories chosen are relevant. However, the same piece of work may only be entered once into section ‘A. TV / Cinema Film: Sectors’ and once into section 'B. Online Film: Sectors'.

In sections A, B, C and D each execution constitutes one entry and all executions must have run within the eligibility period.

In Sections E, F multiple executions can be entered as one entry however all Film executions must have run within the eligibility period.

Work which is not in English should be subtitled, so that it can be understood in English, exactly as it was published or aired. Please note that dubbing is not allowed.
