Young Spikes PR Competition

Teams of PR professionals craft a PR strategy that connects with the organisations’ brand value, engages with the public and builds relations with relevant stakeholders.

26 - 28 September 2018

The Young Spikes PR Competition gives teams of young professionals just two days to develop a PR strategy that boosts awareness. This is a chance for young talent to exhibit their original ideas in the PR sphere and make a name for themselves in the region’s creative communication community.

The two-person teams work to a brief presented by a charity or non-profit organisation, whose name, objectives, strategies and target audience will remain secret until the briefing session.

How does it work?

The teams will be asked to come up with a strategy idea and produce some elements of creative so that their strategy takes shape in front of the jury.

They’ll also be asked to show how their idea would connect with the organisation’s brand value, engage with the public and build relations with relevant stakeholders. They’ll also create PR supporting material applicable in relevant media channels and submit a written proposal before presenting to the jury.

The Prize

A panel of expert judges will judge each entry and select the winners, who will be awarded Gold medals at the Spikes Asia Awards Ceremony. They will also receive full delegate passes to Spikes Asia 2019.

Want to get involved?

Competitors must be aged 30 years or under (born on or after 28 September 1987) and employed in the advertising or communications businesses, in a skill discipline relevant to their chosen competition.

Teams are chosen through a pre-selection process in their own countries. They will participate in the Young Spikes Competitions, held during the Spikes Asia Festival, and compete against young creatives from all over the world.
