Student Creative Award for Print

Students are asked to create a poster in response to a brief and the winner selected by the jury will be invited to experience the festival first-hand.

The Student Creative Award for Print, powered by HP, offers an exciting and real communications challenge in which students can test their skills and respond to a live brief from HP.

This is a chance for full-time tertiary students between 18-25 to prove themselves among APAC's creative best. Original, attention-grabbing work that responds to the brief in a completely unique way goes far in this competition.

The work is judged and shortlisted online, before the winner is awarded live on stage at Spikes Asia 2018.
