Student Creative Award for Print

Students are asked to create a poster in response to a brief and the winner selected by the jury will be invited to experience the festival first-hand.

26 - 28 September 2018

The Student Creative Award for Print offers an exciting and real communications challenge in which students can test their skills and respond to a live brief from a leading charitable organisation or NGO.

This is a chance for full-time university students between 18-25 to prove themselves among APAC's creative best. Original, attention-grabbing work that responds to the brief in a completely unique way goes far in this competition.

The work is judged and shortlisted online, before the winners are awarded live on stage at Spikes Asia 2018.

Why you should enter

It's a fantastic opportunity to get the work of talented young people noticed by some of the creative industry's key decision-makers and for talented students to experience the region's leading event for the creative community.
