I thought Publicis pulled out of awards. How did Leo's end up there (Sydney/KL)? Not begrudging them. Just curious. Any others who wanted to enter are probably pissed.

It's possible they entered the Spikes before Cannes where Publicis made the announcement. True, the deadline for Spikes entry isn't til 4 weeks after Cannes, but some agencies get their work in early to take advantage of the 'early bird' discount that the show offers.

Just a guess, but that would make the most sense.
