Interesting to see a local award show jumping on bandwagon to create so many categories, it is going to be embarrassingly short of entries in a lot of the categories for sure, either that or there would be some jokers sending a print campaign into branded content category. But in the long run perhaps this would encourage more creative work getting made, beyond the usual print and poster Singapore is still obsessing with.
