WHAT IS CREATE STUDIO?
After an overwhelming response to the previous two competitions, STUDIO in partnership with Semi-Permanent are on the hunt for Australia’s brightest creative sparks – the talented artists, the creatives and the big-thinkers – to dream up new 30 second brand spots for our channel.
Finalists will co-produce their concept with STUDIO, receive cash prize money and will be mentored by industry professionals through the creative process. The only guideline is that the concept should bring the STUDIO logo to life through art or design.
Entries are open from Wednesday 1 October to Friday 31 October via an entry form on this page.
STUDIO is encouraging all Australian artists to enter – regardless of form or method – whether it’s stop-motion animation, street art, sculpture, lighting or something peculiar in-between. Anything goes; we want to hear from all types of artists around the country – whether emerging, established, traditional or experimental – no genre is too conventional or too radical.
If you’re in need of inspiration, check out our additional information and downloads in the drop-down menu. It includes links to the finalists from the previous two competitions, plus the STUDIO style guide, logo and music sting.
Put on your thinking cap!
THE JUDGING PROCESS:
A judging panel will select a shortlist of entrants to present their concept. This will either be in person or if you are interstate, via a conference call – we want to hear more about your idea.
Three finalists will be chosen to continue on and work with a dedicated STUDIO Production Manager to make their idea a reality. STUDIO will cover the production costs for the three finalists, so no artist will be left out of pocket.
All three finalists will receive $1000 prize money and will work with STUDIO and a dedicated production manager to bring their concept to life.
The judging panel will then review the three finished promos – and one final winner will be awarded $10,000 based on originality and the strength of their execution. All three finalist commercials will air on STUDIO from early 2015.
HOW TO ENTER:
Tell us how you plan to bring the STUDIO logo to life in a 30 second brand spot (television commercial) and how you would execute it for under $5,000. Submit your entry and your idea could be chosen and produced for national television.
To enter, complete the entry form featured at the bottom of this page or in the drop down menu before October 31.
