Campaigns: What is a ‘Campaign of Executions’?
It’s a coordinated series of linked executions for the same product/service with a single creative idea running through it. Each execution you enter, is counted as an individual entry and incurs a full entry fee.
Entries submitted as a ‘Campaign of Executions’ have the chance of being awarded a ‘Campaign Spike Award’ or if the jury feel one execution of the campaign is stronger, a ‘Spike Award’ for an individual execution can be awarded.
Campaigns like this should be entered as multiple single entries in the following Awards:
- Digital (Section: D. Online Video)
- Film (Sections: A. TV & Cinema Film, B. Online Film, C01. Viral Film, C03. Screens & Events)
- Film Craft
- Outdoor (Sections: A Billboards & Street Posters, B. Indoor Posters)
- Print & Publishing (Sections: A. Print)
- Print & Publishing Craft
When entering a ‘Campaign of Executions’ you will be asked to give each piece of work in your campaign a unique ‘execution title’ plus a title for the campaign as a whole. Work submitted as part of a ‘Campaign of Executions’ cannot be entered again as a single entry in the same category.
In all other Spikes, you can enter any number of executions from your campaign in a single entry.
As part of entering your work, you will also need to enter details of the companies who made a contribution to your entry. These are the ‘Company Credits’.
You will be asked to submit the name of each company and the company activity, address details, and the role the company fulfilled in the work you are entering. A detailed explanation of the company role types are below:
Each entry requires one ‘Entrant Company’. The Entrant Company is responsible for payment of entry fees and will be considered the sole contact for any entry related queries. If you are making an entry you are the Entrant Company. If your entry is awarded a Spike, it is the Entrant Company who will receive the certificate/trophy.
There can only be one Entrant Company credited per entry. Please note that unless you are the client, you must be credited in at least one other role apart from Entrant Company.
Each entry requires at least one ‘Idea Creation' role, this can often be the same organisation as the Entrant Company. This role is for companies significantly involved in the creation of the idea at the core of the work that you are submitting, this can often be an advertising agency.
You must specify which company fulfilled the Media Placement role if you enter Media Spike. The Media Placement role refers to a media agency that worked significantly or solely on the media strategy of the work being submitted. This can also be any other type of company/agency who worked significantly or solely on the media strategy. If a media agency was involved in both the idea creation and media strategy of the entry then both roles should be marked.
You must specify which company fulfilled the Production role if you enter: Film Spikes, Film Craft Spikes, Entertainment Spikes, Digital Spikes, Mobile Spikes, Digital Craft Spikes, and the following Spikes Health mediums: Film, Film Craft, Branded Content, Digital, Mobile and Digital Craft. The Production role refers to a production company that worked significantly or solely on the production of the published work being submitted. This can also be any type of company/agency who worked significantly or solely on the production. This does not refer to companies who solely produced the ‘case film’ for the entry. If a production company was involved in both the idea creation and production of the entry then both idea creation and production roles should be credited.
You must specify which company fulfilled the PR role if you enter: PR Spikes or the Spikes Health medium: PR. The PR role refers to a PR agency that worked significantly or solely on the PR campaign for the work being submitted. This can also be any type of company/agency who worked significantly or solely on the PR campaign. If a PR agency was involved in both the idea creation and PR aspects of the entry then both roles should be marked.
Companies which have made smaller contributions to the work. Points for Special Awards are not allocated to companies listed here. You can add as many additional companies as you like.
When making your entry please ensure you credit companies in the correct roles as this directly affects the calculations for the Special Awards.
You should enter the companies the order you would like them to be published as this is how they will appear on the Spikes Asia Website and on your certificates.
It is the entrant company’s responsibility to ensure that the company credits are correct when you complete and pay for your entries.
Spikes Asia can confirm if your company has been credited on an existing entry by email. If you believe you should be credited on an entry and you are not, then it is your responsibility to contact the ‘Entrant Company’ so they can request the change. The deadline for company credit amendments is 17:00 BST on 24 September 2017.
