Festival Representatives

Connecting you to Spikes Asia through the year

Our network of official Representatives are champions for creativity in their respective corners of the region. They support their local agencies and clients, working together to give them the best possible shot at success at the Festival.

How your Representative can help:

  1. Nominating jury members 
    Each year, Representatives identify their country’s best creative talent and nominate exemplary industry members for places in the Spikes Asia Juries, ensuring the most qualified, balanced judging panels.
  2. Organising local Young Spikes Competitions
    Representatives put together teams of budding industry stars to take part in the annual Young Spikes competitions.
  3. Hosting Local Awards Ceremonies
    Following the annual Festival, Representatives organise local celebrations, honouring the winners from Spikes Asia and Cannes Lions.
  4. Showing screenings of the work
    If you didn’t get a chance to come to Spikes Asia or catch all the winners while you were there, your Representative will get you up to speed.
