But the ad industry has a short memory and little patience with the past, so it is time to enter and be judged on the work you have produced in the last year. The award show is now a global affair. In Asia, Japan has led the field for wins followed by Singapore. Hong Kong took third spot with Malaysia in fourth place. Last year 64 countries entered.

This is the cream of the shows so go after one of the D&AD Pencils.
