News Corp Australia’s director national sales Sharb Farjami said: “News Corp has been running this competition for seven years and it’s encouraging to see the huge appetite the industry has for it.

“In that time, it has only gotten stronger and the next round of the competition will be fiercely contested with 10 spots up for grabs for the most talented creative and advertising professionals to attend the most reputable creative festival in the world.  Runner-up teams in media and print will get the opportunity to represent Australia at the Young Spikes Asia Competition in Singapore in September. I wish all finalists the very best of luck.”

The second round of the competition will commence on  19 May  with winners being announced at a breakfast  event on Friday 29 May 2014.

The winning teams in the final round will receive return flights to Nice in France, accommodation and festival registration with access to all the seminars, awards ceremonies, showcases and the beach gala party.
