WHAT IS CREATE STUDIO?
After an overwhelming response last year, STUDIO in partnership with The Loop are on the hunt again 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 an exclusive professional mentorship program. The only guideline is that the concept should bring the STUDIO logo to life through art or design.
Entries are open from Tuesday 1 October to Thursday 31 October via The Loop’s website. STUDIO is encouraging all Australian artists to enter – whether it’s stop-motion animation, street art, sculpture, lighting or something peculiar in-between. Anything goes; we want to be surprised, delighted or even shocked.
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 last year’s competition, 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.
Four 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 four finalists, so no artist will be left out of pocket.
All four finalists will receive $1000 prize money and will be profiled on The Loop and on STUDIO – both on-air and online. The judging panel will choose one final winner who will be awarded $10,000.
The final winner will also have the chance to take part in an exclusive mentorship program – matched to their skills and interests.
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.
You’ll need to attach your resume, submit your entry and your idea could be chosen and produced for national television.
To enter, visit The Loop at http://www.theloop.com.au/ from October 1 and follow their instructions.
