After years of running The One Show Greater China, the club expanded the scope of the awards two years ago to include all of Asia Pacific as ONE Asia.  Entries last year were received from 16 countries and regions in APAC, with winners representing Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan-China, Thailand and Vietnam.  

Entries are now being accepted, with fees increasing after each deadline period.  The extended deadline is September 8, 2023, final deadline September 15, 2023.

Eligible countries and regions for ONE Asia are Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Mainland China, East Timor, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

In-person and online judging will take place in October, with finalists announced in November.  Gold, Silver and Bronze winners, along with Best of Show and Best of Disciplines, will be announced in December.

ONE Asia is part of The One Club’s renowned Global Creative Rankings.  ONE Asia awards won by agencies and brands now gain them international recognition, and corresponding points contribute to regional and global network and holding company global rankings totals.

Says Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club: “ONE Asia has fast become a must-enter show in the region, and an important part of the prestigious Global Creative Rankings. These judges represent the vanguard of creative leaders from across all of APAC, and they will drive the process to recognize this year’s winners.”

The One Club Greater China office was founded in 2000, hosting a series of youth events in China, and added The One Show Greater China Awards and related Creative Week programming eight years ago.  For 23 years, the office has focused on promoting creativity in the APAC region, and greater communications between Greater China and the global industry.
