That's a pretty abrupt geographical cut-off you have drawn on that map Lynchy, but it is good to see that the long-forgotten agencies in Eastern Siberia and especially Vladivostok (the Russian Portland) will finally get a guernsey.

Does this mean you will begin a push for Mongolian judges, lest we miss the local intricacies of Ulan Bator?

Mongolian judges could very well be invited in the future as Inner Mongolia is part of China, has been since they outrageously took over old Ghengis Khan's once great land in 1947. The other biggies outside the seven Asian Tigers of south-east Asia are India, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. So that's the AWARD region this very doddsy (er.. dodgy) map is trying to illustrate.

Apparently there are riots in Karachi, as (according to the map) Bangladesh is eligible for AWARD but Pakistan isn't.

When times are busy, I send briefs over to my shadow creative team in the Ukraine.

Ok, the resulting ads may have loads of references to horses, pickled pork fat, and puns that don't translate very well, but they're very excited about the fact that they can now enter AWARD.

Well done Vassily and Ykenti!!! Bring your book, Mr Horner is hiring.

Not an expert on AWARD, but are European and American agencies ineligible to enter? Seems strange when we clamoured to get entry to D&AD for so long. Is someone, somewhere, scared?

Hey Jello, check your map again. Vladivostok's in, but Ukraine is OUT.

AWARD should be open to anyone who wants to enter. A defined target area is good but anybody who pays their money should be given a go. if you look at the scheme of things, a young guns award will carry you further in the internatioanl market place than an AWARD. I don't have any young guns but recruiters in Europe asked about them and not AWARD. but it would be great if it could be the other way round [being an old guy and all]

I've just been told that to be a motivated, award hungry, prepared to put your hand up for anything, self promoting go-getter is the wrong attitude for the agency at which I work.

Instead, I should be a wall-flower, a piece of flotsam that drifts on listlessly on the creative currents.

Go figure.

I might as well go and work for Coles!

3.56pm, Last time I checked, Europe and America were not part of Australasia. Which is what the A in AWARD stands for.
