Piyush Pandey, Chief Creative Officer, Worldwide & Executive Chairman, Ogilvy, India, and Jury President of this year’s Film, Print & Publishing and Radio & Audio juries said: "Good work stands out in good times and bad. I am glad that the jury had enough work to choose from, despite the difficulties that the world faced in 2020. Congratulations to all the worthy winners."


Philip Thomas, Chairman, Spikes Asia, said: “It’s been fantastic to see such a breadth of work awarded across this creatively diverse region, and the release of The Spikes Asia Creativity Report means that we can now really start to analyse and interrogate the work to understand APACs industry landscape.
