Judged by an independent panel of senior client-side communications experts, Spark Awards will bring together top media owners and professionals to applaud the region’s finest!


This year, to reflect the ever-changing in the media industry, we have reformed and refreshed the categories, and we proudly introduce 34 refreshed categories within 2 distinct areas – “Media Campaign” categories recognise the best works a media owner created whereas “Media Owner” categories aimed to merit the region’s top media owner by focusing on their overall performance. The best performer across all categories under each area will earn the coveted title of “Media Campaign of the Year” and “Media of the Year” respectively.
