The competition, which launches on July 9, 2013, is free to enter and is open to all APAC students up to 25 years of age, in full-time education. Answering to a brief set by UNICEF, students will have until Saturday, August 13, 2013 to produce an original poster, which will be judged by a panel of international industry leaders, members of the Spikes Asia juries.

The shortlisted entries into the competition will be exhibited to all delegates during the Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity (September 15-17, 2013). The winner will be honoured at the Spikes Asia awards ceremony on September 17.
