Spikes Asia 2015 Winners Revealed

Grey Singapore’s ‘Life Saving Dot’ and Cheil’s autism tool for Samsung triumph with two Grand Prix each

A bindi that transfers much needed medicine to women in rural India and an app that helps autistic children identify facial expressions were the big creative winners at Spikes Asia 2015. Life Saving Dot took the Grand Prix in both the innovation and outdoor categories (you can read more about the making of the campaign here) while Look At Me won the Mobile Grand Prix and the PR Grand Prix (which you can read about here).

The awards at Suntec centre in Singapore were the climax of an exciting week at the Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity. Ad industry professionals from the Asia Pacific region – and beyond – met to discuss the pressing issues of the day, including talent, gender equality in the industry and innovation. There were speakers from Facebook, Twitter, DDB, Sapientnitro and more – plus a special visit from Mad Men star Christina Hendricks (a.k.a. Joan Holloway).

BBDO was named network of the year while Colenso BBDO in Auckland won the accolade for agency of the year. CJ Worx in Bangkok was named independent agency of the year, Starcom Australia took home media agency of the year and the Spikes Palm for best production company went to morimori in Tokyo.
