Fourth year CNM student Tan Jun Hong won the inaugural Spikes Asia Student Creative Award for Print. He received the award on 17 September 2013 during the Spikes Asia Awards Ceremony at the Grand Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.
Entrants were asked to create an original poster in response to a special brief from non-profit organisation UNICEF. Jun Hong’s entry was unanimously chosen as the winner out of more than 100 other entries. According to the organisers, his original and insightful answer to the UNICEF brief impressed the judges.
“I am really humbled and honoured to be the first winner and I hope that this can be a springboard to a career in advertising,” Jun Hong said.
The Spikes Asia Awards are the region’s oldest and most prestigious awards for creative advertising. The entries are judged by leading international and regional creatives in Singapore during the Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity
