Starting this year, One Asia is now part of The One Club’s Global Creative Rankings for 2023. One Asia awards won by agencies and brands will now gain them international recognition in their own right, and contribute as appropriate to network and holding company global rankings totals.
“After a successful first year in 2021, One Asia will be significantly more important to agencies and brands now as part of the Global Creative Rankings,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club. “These judges represent the vanguard of creatives, designers, and innovators across all of APAC, and they will drive the process to recognize this year’s winners.”
“After expanding The One Show Greater China to the whole Asia Pacific region as One Asia last year, we now take the next step in elevating the best work in the region on the global stage,” said Ma Chao, chief representative, The One Club Asia office.
Entries are now being accepted via One Asia Online System.
