UK - Entertainment technology charity Backup is launching The Backup Pumpkin Challenge, a competition to help raise awareness of the charity in a fun and creative way.
To participate, you need a pumpkin, your design, and any props or tech you want to incorporate to bring your design to life. Fundraisers are also welcome but not required.
The Backup Pumpkin Challenge consists of four categories: Best Overall Design; Best Use of Tech; Most Money Raised (via the Backup Pumpkin Challenge Fundraising Page); Most Overall Likes (on Instagram).
To enter a design, participants need to upload up to three photos and/or a video no longer than 15 seconds to Instagram using #BackupPumpkinChallenge along with your name or team name. All entries must be posted by 31 October. Winners will be announced on 5 November.
If you don't have an Instagram account, Collaborative Creations can upload your design via their account - contact Mike at Collaborative creations at Mike@creativebd.co.uk.
Entries are welcome from across the globe, and whilst no big prizes will be given away, winners will receive merchandise from Backup.
All money raised from the fundraising side of the campaign will go to the Backup charity, which provides financial support to industry technical professionals working in live events, theatre, TV and film who are seriously ill or who were involved in an accident. The Backup Pumpkin Challenge is supported by the Association of Lighting Designers and the Association of Sound Designers.
