The Times of India Group has been supporting young talent in the advertising and media industry by creating opportunities at the Young Lions and Young Spikes stages. A great outcome this year was the Silver bagged by the Young Marketer’s team from HUL at the Cannes Young Lions last month. In keeping with this endeavour, The Times of India has announced the Young Spikes contest for two categories – Integrated and Media.

Times Group will sponsor the winning teams with an all-expense paid trip to Singapore to represent India and compete internationally at Spikes Asia 2014, happening on September 23 – 26, 2014. Entries will be judged by a preliminary jury and the chosen finalists will make a physical presentation to the final jury in the first week of August in Mumbai. The entire judging process will be overseen by Ernst & Young, Process Partners for Young Spikes.

This year’s theme for Young Spikes – Integrated is on ‘Stop Unnecessary & Incessant Honking on Roads’, while the Theme for Young Spikes – Media is ‘Naked Overhead Wires, a Threat to Life’.

The Young Spikes Contests are exciting, fast-paced 24-hour competitions giving teams a chance to gain recognition by developing innovative media and integrated strategy.

The final jury for Young Spikes Integrated has a host of prominent names like Josy Paul, Arun Iyer, and Senthil. An equally distinguished jury for Young Spikes Media consists of names like Nandini Dias, Yesudas and Ravi Rao.
