Spikes Asia - Day two

Spikes Day2 12.jpgSpikes Asia has a total of 69 TV/Cinema, 13 Radio and 63 Digital entries through to the shortlist stage this year. The winners will be announced tonight at the gala awards ceremony.

The second day of the Spikes Asia Festival included packed seminar sessions presented by TBWA's worldwide creative director John Hunt and the Leo Burnett + Contagious presentation hosted by Mark Tutssel, Burnett's chief creative officer. The speakers sessions at Spikes have been excellent and probably the highlight of day two was the BBC Hardtalk interview with Neil French (pictured above right with O&M India's Piyush Pandey and McCann India's Prasoon Joshi). BBC World News presenter, Mishal Husain, conducted the fabulous session with challenging questions about his past, present and future. French did not disappoint and even managed to drop the word "wank" into the interview much to the horror of Husain.

The evening saw delegates doing the rounds of six Singaporean agencies who opened their doors for the Networking After Dark event.

As for the work to be awarded tonight be prepared to see some fairly old work getting up for the award show tonight. Due to the move of Spikes Asia away from their previous April date to later in the year much of the best work on the walls at Spikes is from Cannes two years ago (ie BBDO Malaysia's Jeep work and Saatchi & Saatchi Malaysia's Silverfish Books campaign).
