Awards

New for 2017

DESIGN

In line with our focus on creativity in Product Design we have introduced two new categories focusing on Brand Communications and New Technology. We have also redefined and reshaped some existing categories to reflect todays design industry more accurately.  You can find all changes and details of how to enter over at the Design Spikes awards page.

 

DIRECT

Data has become integral to the direct marketing industry – from audience targeting to deducing meaningful results. To reflect this developed use of creative insight we are pleased to introduce the new data section in the Direct Spikes. Full descriptions and entry criteria can be found on the Direct Spikes awards page.

 

ENTERTAINMENT

Going from strength to strength, the categories for Entertainment have been tweaked for clarity. ‘Sports’ is a new category that makes room for all the best in sports entertainment partnerships. Full details can be found over at the Entertainment Spikes awards page.

 

FILM

A refreshed Film Spike returns in 2017 with a new Micro-film category and a new 360° / VR film category. You can find full details of these categories and how to enter at the Film Spikes awards page.

 

INNOVATION

The bastion of ground-breaking technological solutions innovates itself in 2017 with the introduction of two new categories. ‘Technological Craft & Development’ will award the technical prowess behind the ideas, while ‘Early Stage Technology’ offers a space for prototypes and beta stage ideas. Take a look at these exciting new categories and more over at the Innovation Spikes awards page.  

 

MEDIA

Context is everything for Media Spikes, therefore breadth and clarity is required in order to recognise communication that truly shines. Refinements this year include a more definitive split between ‘Use of TV’ and ‘Other Screens’ in B categories, plus the reintroduction of ‘Use of Technology’. Three new specific data categories have been introduced in response to industry demand. Further details on all categories are over on the Media Spikes awards page.

 

MOBILE

As the industry finds its feet with virtual reality on mobile devices, we at Spikes are listening and reflecting what correct terms, descriptions and definitions are used for new and emerging technologies. As such, we believe that it is now important to differentiate between VR experiences and 360° Videos when it comes to fair judging. Check out these changes plus all categories and descriptions over on the dedicated Mobile Spikes awards page.
