Vietnam Young Spikes is the largest national competition for Vietnamese students and industry practitioners under 30 working in marketing and communications. Winners will be nominated to represent Vietnam at the 2017 Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity, taking place in Singapore in September.
The competition has been organized for the fourth time by AIM Academy—The Central Hub of Vietnam Marketing & Communication Industry—with the mission to elevate the standards of the industry. Over three seasons, the competition has attracted over 910 contestants from leading universities and top agencies and brands in Vietnam.
This year, Vietnam Young Spikes opens in three categories: Digital, Integrated and Media. Each category includes two leagues: students and industry practitioners. Each team of two members can only register in one category.
After the brief session, each team has 48 hours to complete its submissions. The top seven from the shortlist will need to present their ideas in front of a jury board to prove their talents. Winners of each category and each league will be selected based on their creativity and strategic thinking.
The gold-winning team from the students league will receive a full trip with Student Spikes Passes to Spikes Asia, taking place in 27 through 29 September in Singapore, and have a chance to take part in the Young Creative Academy during the festival.
The gold-winning team from the industry practitioners league will represent Vietnam at the 2017 Young Spikes Competition and receive a full trip to Spikes Asia with Young Spikes Passes.
