Longxi Creative Awards is “An advertising award of the Chinese, by the Chinese, for the Chinese”. Its organisers claim to be ” The only Chinese language advertising award recognized by world renowned advertising leagues.”
Longxi Awards was created 18 years ago by four of the most active memebers of the Chinese advertising community: Jimmy Lam, David Sun, Tomaz Mok and Peter Soh. It aims to feature and put in competition Chinese language work created by advertising companies in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and North America.
The 2014 Longxi Awards took place just a few days ago (January 16-20) in the exotic western region of Xuan Han, Dazhou of Sichuan Province. 14 members of the Grand Jury, selected from a number of leading advertising agencies, were invited to the intense creative judging.
The judges attendee list included:
陈耀福Norman Tan JWT Asia Pacific, Shanghai
狄运昌Michael Dee The Gate, Greater China

Over 1,300 creative works were submitted for this edition but only a total of 266 creative works made the first round entry list cut. After two long and tedious days of judging and careful deliberations, the award results are out!
The Grand Prix went to Lowe China for its Buick TVC & Paid Internet Film category entry under the Cars- single sub-category titled “Human Traffic Signs”. The winner won by an overwhelming vote majority amongst the judges – which made SHP+ quite happy as we also chose this campaign for SHP+’s Favorite China Ads from 2014!
Sheena Jeng, China Chair and Chief Creative Officer of Publicis China, stated that she has seen Lowe China’s Buick entry multiple times, but each time found the advertisement more meaningful and delivering a new touching message. In her words “the advertisement is simple but yet powerful.”
Other awards for both digital and ATL total being 19 Gold, 33 Silver, 58 Bronze, 56 Merit, 1 Best of Press, 1 Best of Direct Marketing and 1 Best of Social Engagement.
