UK - The Backup Pumpkin Challenge is back again and it’s an excuse to unleash your creativity in aid of Backup. The challenge is a competition to help raise awareness of the charity in a fun and creative way. Individuals, companies or teams are encouraged to take part. All you need is a pumpkin, your design and any props or tech you want to incorporate to bring your design to life.
Participants are asked to promote this competition on social media channels.
The Backup Pumpkin Challenge consists of five categories: Best overall design (judged by panel); Best use of tech (judged by panel); Best Design by Future Creative* (judged by panel); Most overall likes (on Instagram); Cutest Fur Baby Pumpkin Pic (most overall likes on Instagram).
Due to competition being open to anyone and anywhere, we will not be giving away any big prizes, but we will contact winners to send some Backup swag. All winners will be promoted on Backup’s social media pages, marketing material and in the industry press. Plus, you get the prize of industry bragging rights!
Best Design by Future Creative criteria is any new professional to our industry, it is not age specific but aimed at those just starting out in the creative side of our industry.
Short listed designs will be contacted to confirm they are a new creative professional, and will be asked for either a student ID/acceptance letter, a pledge from a current industry professional that you’re in training, or short explanation of how you’re attempting to enter the industry.
The aim of this category to give our future creatives a chance to highlight their design skills, as we know this current climate is not giving you a the start in the industry you had hoped to have.
Entry is free, though donations are always welcome - visit the Backup website if you wish to make a donation. To enter your design upload a maximum of three photos and/or video of which is no more than 15 seconds to Instagram.
