Tangrams 2019 jury members announced

The Tangrams Strategy and Effectiveness Awards @ Spikes has announced its jury lineup for the 2019 awards, which will be announced during Spikes Asia 2019 on September 26.

The jury includes 79 judges (listed below) across the five award types: Effectiveness, Media Strategy, Digital Strategy, Data & Analytics and e-Commerce.

“We have hand-picked this year’s jury who we believe to be the highest calibre from across the region who will ensure our rigorous three-stage judging process recognises only the very best campaigns from Asia-Pacific," said Joe Pullos, Spikes Asia festival director. "This is simply a great opportunity for entrants to have their work judged and recognised by the top marketers and strategists in Asia.”

The recent alignment of the entry and judging timeline for the Tangrams with the Spikes Asia awards  also makes it easier for entrants to work on submissions for a single piece of work once, rather than multiple times throughout the year. 

The Tangrams will be announced and awarded on September 26 in a dedicated award show. Early-bird delegate passes to the Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity, which includes entry to the Tangrams Awards, are available at

Tangrams Strategy & Effectiveness key dates
