Due to popular demand from the region’s agencies and production companies, ADFEST, the only Asia Pacific advertising festival originating from Asia, has agreed to extend the deadline for entries until 31 January.
ADFEST’s online entry system launched in late December 2009 and, as a result, many agencies requested the original deadline of 15 January 2010 be extended by an extra two weeks so they had more time to finalise entries. And, bless them, the organisers agreed to the demands.
There are 13 Lotus categories to enter at the awards: Film Lotus; Press Lotus; Poster Lotus; Outdoor Lotus; Cyber Lotus; Direct Lotus; Design Lotus; Radio Lotus; Print Craft Lotus; Film Craft Lotus; New Director Lotus; 360 Lotus; and INNOVA Lotus.
