2017 Spikes Asia announces 98 jury members

Terry Savage.jpgSpikes Asia has released the names of the 98 jury members from 17 countries who will judge entries from across the Asia Pacific region, 40% of whom will be female.

The Asia Pacific region once again had notable success at Cannes Lions 2017, bringing home four Grands Prix awards at the International Festival of Creativity: Dentsu Y&R Tokyo won in Mobile for Recruit Lifestyle's "The Family Way"; AP Thailand was awarded a Design Grand Prix for "The Unusual Football Field", and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne took home two Grands Prix (Cyber and Health & Wellness) for the much acclaimed "Meet Graham" for the Transport Accident Commission Victoria.
"Judged on a global level, the breadth and vision of the Lion-winning work from Asia Pacific at Cannes Lions ably demonstrates the rich and vibrant creative talent in the region, and we look forward to seeing more exciting work rise through the ranks at this year's Spikes Asia Festival. We're delighted to announce the full jury line-up. These judges represent the best industry talent across a spectrum of creativity disciplines. They're tasked with determining the future path of creative communications, and I'm confident it's a duty they will discharge with the rigour and passion for which the Spikes juries are famous," said Terry Savage, Chairman of Spikes Asia (pictured above).

Is this the best spikes can do!
Good names for jury presidents and then 80% of the panels are full of people no-one has heard of.

Who choses these judges?
Spikes have no idea who the good agencies are.
Why bother entering.

Have to agree.
Of course a few of the Spikes/Campaign favourites are crow barred in as usual (Tutssel, Bessie Lee!!) but overall feels very junior. The state of that PR jury! Led by someone from Ogilvy PR (does it even still exist?) in HK? Wow.

Never mind that the judges are unknown, even many of the category presidents are weak. What world class work did they make recently? Makes it really hard for everyone in the industry take the winners seriously because of them.
