Envision a future where anyone uses free transports to move around the city

By Thomas Langella on February 24, 2017 13:17 Call for entries 0

Envision a future where anyone uses free transports to move around the city.

Over 3.7 billion people (half of the world’s population) already live in cities, and this number is expected to grow to over 5 billion by 2030. The issue is that with population density increasing, it becomes more and more challenging to get around.

In the future, something is missing in the ideal picture, an effective and sustainable transportation solution for everyone, available for free.

Can you project yourself in 2050 and imagine a utopian world where efficient, free and universal transport supports communities in which all people have access to the benefits of modern society?

Imagine a self-sustaining, fare-free system that transports anyone living, working or visiting urban center in 2050. The solution will be part of everyone’s life, daily.

eYeka community x Leopalace21 : the 2nd year of collaboration and the amazing outputs!

By kajeeporntechataveekijkul on February 17, 2017 11:00 Success Story 0

Dear our beloved eYeka community

This is the 2nd time eYeka community and Leopalace21, a leading innovator in apartment rentals in Asia, has done this co-creation project together. After the first project in 2015 with amazing result, Leopalace21 came back to us in a year after with an interesting challenge for the community. This time they asked the community to create a funny, entertaining and emotionally engaging video that shows how a young person’s life changes after they start living on their own rooms.

In 35 days, 38 videos flew in from 12 countries to join Leopalace21 video contest. 3 winners were selected and their amazing videos were featured on Leopalace21 website! Well done, guys!

Let us introduce the winners and their captivating videos to you.

First prize: “Boy Jupiter” – wesleyhchew (Canada)

Thank you Leopalace 21 and eYeka, this was my 
first attempt at a video contest but certainly not my last!

Leopalace21’s comment:

A story, about mistakes more likely to happen to young people who just started a new life, and making a friend who has common interests in neighborhood, is dramatically drawn and attracting the viewer's heart. It’s also wonderful that the story has events of hopes happening inside of the room.

*******************

Second prize: “Dear Mom” – victorjng (Spain)

Wow! I can´t believe I won the second prize in this contest!! This is my third win here in Eyeka. I´ve participated in so many contests and I´ve been shortlisted in so many of them but not winning. 


I gotta say that sometimes I wanted to give up because is not easy to win and I thought this was not for me.At the end I thought: This is what I love and I´m not doing this for the money, i want to get better and do better videos, I want to do this and I do not care if I don´t win, I have to enjoy the journey.

This is what I did and I keep on doing videos, trying to do better things and now I won!! This is just a message for the people, because I´ve been down a lot of times and I know what it feels. 


But you have to work and to fight for what you love no matter what!!! If you win is awesome for sure and that gives you a lot of condifence, and the money is great too, but if you do not win, don´t worry! Enjoy yourself doing what you love and do it with your heart. Soon or later you will get what you want if you fight for it!

Thanks Eyeka for giving us a lot of opportunities to participate in endless contests. Is amazing for us to have the chance to do this and try to do great content for a lot of important brands. 


Thanks to Leopalace to choose my video as the second winner, and for the others winners and not winners, you create awesome videos!

Cheers for everyone! And remember to keep on fighting for what you love!

Leopalace21’s comment:

Her expressions and cuts express freedom and happiness which spread by starting living by herself and the meaning of starting a new life.

At the same time, the message to her mother, phone call to her sister expresses family ties.

*******************

Third prize: “Leopalace Territory” – hervecarton (France)

I am very happy to be on the podium! I was waiting for an animation contest since a long time and this one was pretty inspiring. It was fun to remember the time of my installation in my first apartment... Thanks to the Eyeka's team and Happy New Year 2017 to all!

Leopalace21’s comment: 

The originality of the idea, expressing starting a new life with what dogs come in to a new room is interesting, and also the story of confusion and depression becomes energetic is drawn carefully with animation which is very high quality.

*******************

Two other impressive videos are featured on Leopalace21's website as well!

“Find your freedom” – miguelangelgm (Spain)

“Oh shit!” - Gloria_Kurnik (UK)

*******************

We hope these wonderful videos and awesome creators have inspired you to the max! Such a great start for 2017, isn’t it? Look forward to see more entries been featured by our clients this year as well!

"Francis Prat": February Creator of the Month who decided not to leave the creative world thanks to eYeka!

By kajeeporntechataveekijkul on February 07, 2017 03:00 Featured Authors 0

Hello eYeka people!

The first month of 2017 has passed! It’s very fast, isn’t it? Are you ready to celebrate the upcoming warmer spring season in most of the place around the world? (or cooler season for Australia & New Zealand :p). Before the celebration, we want to introduce you to a gentleman from France. His name is Francis Prat or boonkis on eYeka. Let’s learn from his experience that how come he could be able to win a lot of contests! Let’s celebrate this Creator of the Month of February 2017 together with us! 

Hi Francis! Thank you for your time today! Can you start by telling us a little about yourself? What brought you to the creative world? What do you do outside of eYeka?

 I have studied Tourism (but I’ve spent most of my time doing Tourism in the west indies, Canada…) After that I’ve studied Geography, Cartography, and Urban Planning in order to do internship or find some nice adventures in exotic places. I’ve finally worked in a small land planning consulting firm in Nice (France), but I was bored of the office so I worked as a house builder (south of France). At that time I was doing some small graphic design work and I first created an account in eYeka : I only made one or 2 entries… I was too busy with jobs, foundation (for kids of Kinshasa – Congo).

I’m actually back in France, in Paris, where I’m doing some graphic design mission and joining several eYeka contests.

When and why did you join eYeka?

In 2009, I think. I’ve just created an account but never got involved in it. About 4 years ago I’ve decided to live in Colombia, to make a living, get a business. I worked with a bunch of people and we have created a web agency! But I had to leave that team! It was so much better like that. I had a nice movie project, too, but it fell down for many reasons. I was out of money, visa, job… and then I remember about eYeka and I’ve started to join some contests. (I was about to completely leave the graphic design world)
After 3 months I won a €500. It was nothing but good enough to live 1 month in Medellin.  So I’ve really started doing that seriously. I won one contest that allowed me to get a really nice apartment with a great terrace.  I’ve stayed there for about 2 years after that I came back to France in June 2016. I missed France.

Can you share your creative process with eYeka contests? What inspires you?

I read the interesting contest (more than € 3500 - not about woman problem…) I read some and start to think. After that I try to go out for a jogging or exercise and I try to keep thinking to get a good idea.  Next, I surf the internet to have some more ideas… or go check old contests to get inspired.

So far, you have submitted 278 entries, you have had 196 accepted entries overall and you have won 12 prizes…This is huge! Can you tell us what pushes you to participate?

I guess I do 50% of the contest just to get busy. I like to participate because we have to produce a professional work even if we are not part of a big company. It is more attractive than making some logo for a friend. I like the idea that nobody tells you what to do, what to change, and don’t have to negotiate for the money--just do your best and hope they will not choose the worst of the entries… 

Do you have projects or works which make you especially proud?

The last I won: new diapers for China (Name Logo Packaging) it will pay for the diapers for my future baby!

Wow! Congratulations in advance about the baby! What have you been able to do or to achieve with the prizes you have won?

I’ve been able to live and travel in Colombia (Cuba, Mexico…), been able to save money for my future wedding (18 February 2017) and I will pay for the diapers…

Can you tell us what are the inspirations that help you coming up with interesting and creative ideas?

Main inspiration is mixing different ideas, concepts… nothing is really new; we just have to remix, adapt, revolute the existing things. I do believe that common sense and tradition are always good source of inspiration… make the tradition more hi-tech and connect human people, face to face… Create things to be shared and to make human less wild. 

Can you describe eYeka in one short sentence?

In 3 “words” : Mobility – Stimulating – good butter on your bread

Anything you would like to say to conclude? What advices would you give to new creators?

To conclude, eYeka was a great chance for me in the last 3 years when I was travelling… I will still submit some entries but I will need a more “regular” job to live in Paris… or not! Still thinking of doing some new things in new places.

Advice : do it! not only to win but also to learn how to work on nice brief, but do it seriously, otherwise you are just wasting your time..

Thank you so much Francis! We hope that after the wedding and the baby, you’ll still have time to play on this eYeka, the World Biggest Creative Playground!

Have a nice February everyone!
