Two senior film company creatives from this part of the world have got the nod as more category juries were released overnight by the Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity, which this year takes place in September. Auckland-based Robber’s Dog Films director Adam Stevens will help judge the Film Craft entries, while Curious Films president Peter Grasse, a familiar face on both sides of the Tasman, has been named as Film Craft jury president.

They join Clemenger BBDO Wellington ECD Bridget Alkema (on the Outdoor & Radio jury), and Special Group CD Maria Devereux (Direct and Promo & Activation Jury), whose appointments were announced on Tuesday (www.mad-daily.com/spikes-tap-kiwis-for-jury-service).
