Editor News Make a Comment

Two NZ senior creatives have been appointed so far to juries at Spikes Asia – and there may be more to come (the categories released to date include Film, Print and Print & Poster Craft; Outdoor and Radio; Direct and Promo & Activation and Design juries).

The NZ jurors are Clemenger BBDO Wellington ECD Bridget Alkema (on the Outdoor & Radio jury), and Special Group CD Maria Devereux (who will sit on the Direct and Promo & Activation jury).

“This is a collection of unequivocal regional talent, with each individual a high-achieving creative campaigner in their own right,” said Lions Festivals chairman Terry Savage, announcing the appointments.

“We look forward to bringing them together in Singapore to judge the best of the region’s creative communications.”
