Over the last five years Unilever has won 41 Spikes for its brand advertising across the Asia-Pacific region, including 11 gold trophies and three Grand Prix, which were awarded to ‘The day I visited my son’ in Film Craft, ‘Radio prank’ in Radio and ‘Where what you grow is what you eat’ in the Media category.
Terry Savage, chairman of Lions Festivals, said that Unilever, "consistently strive to create marketing that is innovative and creatively bold. At Spikes Asia, the juries only award outstanding creativity, so the fact that they have scooped so many accolades is a huge credit to the quality of their marketing in the region.”
Rahul Welde, Unilever's VP of media for Asia, Africa, Middle East, Turkey and Russia, will be present to receive the honour, which will be awarded during the Spikes Asia Awards Ceremony on Friday 11 September.
“We are very pleased to be recognised as The Advertiser of the Year at Spikes Asia 2015," Welde said. "This award is a great testimony to the efforts of our brand teams and agency partners in pushing boundaries in creativity and innovation. We are thankful for their dedication and commitment in breaking new ground in advertising and communication across Asia.”
