Come up with exciting ranges of theme and flavours for Shapes’ snacks that will bring fun to your snacking occasions!

Snacking is a pleasure we allow ourselves to have regardless of our age! It’s universal and intergenerational. From peanuts to almonds, chips to salty crackers or biscuits, it is very hard to resist to any of them. When we are walking down the snack aisles of the supermarket, we see many types of snack foods, and even if we have our habits, we can’t say no to that range of fun, new and exciting biscuits.

Our sponsor, Arnott's, is the owner of the Shapes brand, a well-known and loved brand of flavoured biscuits in Australia. “Flavoured biscuit” is a unique type of snack and has been around for decades! They are most famous for their BBQ and Pizza flavours, among others and they are a highly appreciated alternative to chips across generations.

Arnott’s Shapes wants people to enjoy their snacking occasions, whether it’s afternoon or evening time, and to continuously bring new themes and flavours to their biscuits. And this is exactly where they need your help! For their iconic Shapes’ biscuits, they want to find fun, exciting and new ideas of themes and their associated flavours. Can you help them do that?

Future of Smartphone in 2025

By Thomas Langella on April 10, 2020 08:44 Call for entries 0

Design a future smartphone that changes our lives again, in 2025

When the 1st smartphone was invented, it completely changed our lives. Smartphones brought people closer like never before and enabled the users to have a better control of their lives through very simple and intuitive actions. People had developed a new pattern of living based on their usage of smartphones. And new jobs and new occupations were born with the birth of smartphones. Smartphones have also changed the world.

As time went by, we have seen so many revolutions and evolutions in the category that kept bringing us surprises and excitement. Nowadays people’s lives have been seamlessly connected with smartphones, and many of us cannot live without them. Instead of waiting for the big brands or telecom tycoons to decide what the next invention will be, why don't you show us your vision for the future of smartphones?

Our client is one of the leading smartphone manufacturer with more than 200 million users around the globe, boasting a number of innovation that have improved smartphones over the last decades. Looking forward to the next 5 years, they want to imagine how the technology and hardware will evolve. We need your creativity to envision people’s needs and how smartphones will address them. Can you help?

New Buitoni Dough

By Pauline Gaudillat on April 09, 2020 16:41 Call for entries 0

Invent the next big innovation in dough to warm people’s day-to-day.

One of the most delicious, convivial even enticing scents to come out of a kitchen is the way dough smells when it’s baking in the oven. But who has the know-how, the time or the will to bake home-made bread? Or pizza crust, quiche crust or pastries? Not many of us, and not often! Take pizza for example. Many of us buy frozen pizzas with our preferred topping and pop them in the oven. On a special occasion, we might order in … from a pizza delivery chain, or perhaps from a trusted neighborhood restaurant who has a delivery service. Making a home-made pizza is also an option … and for most of us, a home-made pizza means you buy ready to roll-out chilled pizza dough, add tomato sauce, cheese and other ingredients, and pop it in the oven. Few of us prepare pizza crust from scratch!  

Buitoni and its sister brands, Herta, Wagner and Leisi, are category leaders in Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany and Belgium, but the category is mostly stuck in ‘staples’ – regular, slightly boring, basic culinary chilled dough that requires some time to prepare. It’s also stuck in people’s minds as food which is (too) filling, slightly fattening and “white,” i.e. “empty calories” with little or no nutritional value. As a “packaged food,” some people also worry that chilled dough is not as wholesome as they’d like it to be. Buitoni wants to step-change its category offering to meet today’s changed expectations in a big way. Can you help?

Meet our Creator of the Month - frida_walstrom !

By Pauline Gaudillat on March 31, 2020 12:00 Featured Authors 0

Dear community,

We are happy to introduce you to a creator that has joined us less than a year ago: frida_walstrom. Give her a warm welcome! This Swedish soul loves solving problems, and she likes to put her talent to good use: as she likes to say, "Creativity is always the solution"! Let's read more about her and get inspired!

Tell us a bit more about yourself…
I’m Frida, a self taught content creator and copywriter (in Swedish, so don’t judge my grammar mistakes here please!). I run two small agencies: Pepp o’clock https://www.peppoclock.com/ and iver http://iver.nu/

I live in Stockholm, Sweden, with my husband and our cute rescue dog Millie – a lurcher from Ireland. I work as a freelancer, mostly with social media content but also SEO writing, regular copywriting and creative campaigns when I get a chance. I’ve worked with huge companies and small start ups, I’ve worked with everything from wine to baby food. My strength is creativity.

How did you find out about eyeka?
Through Google. I think the search term was “creative contests” or something like that. I love contests!

Do you have a creative process? If so, can you share a bit of your secret with our community? Where do you look for inspiration?
I brainstorm and write down all of my ideas. Then I try to see which ideas are not out of the box enough and throw those away and focus on tweaking the ones that are left. I usually try different styles of design for the various ideas. My goal is to submit at least two ideas for every contest I enter.

When submitting an entry, how do you keep positive if it is rejected or not selected as a winning entry?
I don’t, LOL! As a creative person (and a competitive person) I think it’s impossible to be positive all the time, especially when you put your heart and soul into something, and you get a rejection in return. HOWEVER, I only allow myself to be disappointed for a day or so. Then I look through all the winning entries and try to learn from them. And get on with the next challenge.

You joined eyeka on July 2019, so less than a year ago. In September, you won 4 prizes: how does it feel?
It feels amazing of course. When working alone from home, you don’t get much validation on what you do. The prize money is really helpful, but the validation is almost more important. My first two “wins” were rewards, so not a lot of money involved, but it helped me get the motivation to continue on. And then bigger prizes came along!

What would you like to achieve (or have already achieved) with the prizes you will win/have won?
Renting a cabin somewhere in the woods and go there to finish the novel I’m writing.

If you had to describe eyeka in 3 words, what would they be?
Creative, rewarding, exciting.

Finally, is there anything you would like to share with our creators (secret, tip…)?
Try to learn something new with every submitted idea. It can be small (“how do I create vertical text in Photoshop?) or something big (a new software). Even if you don’t win, you’ll have knowledge that will help you in your career and future contests.

Thank you so much Frida!

Tattoo After Care Pack Design

By daniaalsabbagh on March 26, 2020 16:33 Call for entries 0

If Bepanthen were to introduce Tattoo After Care, how would you design the pack?

Bepanthen is the leading medicated skin care brand in Europe and is sold all over the world. It has 3 main families of products - for Irritated Skin, Wounded Skin & Baby Skin.

Depending on the country, around 40% of Millennials are inked up with 1 or more tattoos. Most tattooees are urban and middle class, so it has become a mainstream phenomenon. They see tattoos as a form of personal expression – to signal to the world they are unique. Some even get a tattoo to surreptitiously define their identity. As with any artistic expression, there are many styles that come and go, and vary across countries, but most people start with a simple, discreet tattoo.

In countries as diverse as Italy, the Netherlands, the UK and Brazil, Tattoo Artists have been recommending Bepanthen ointment to their clients to help newly tattooed skin heal better, and for ongoing care. Bepanthen wasn’t intended for tattoos, but this grassroots realization has prompted some exciting thinking!

Bepanthen is currently exploring products specially created to care for tattooed skin and is looking for inspiration to design the pack. Can you help?

Confidentiality

This contest is subject to specific confidentiality terms. Your submissions and the details of this contest (including this brief and all the client’s materials available on this page) can’t be disclosed or used outside the contest. Please see the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) available in the Appendix to the Rules for further details.
