ZoOSh – Dare to be different!

A lot of times, eating food becomes like a mundane task because of the uninspiring and uninteresting flavors. What is supposed to be a pleasurable and flavorful event, becomes dull and boring. You want to get done with it rather than enjoying it to the fullest. Don't you wish you could add more flavor to boring food and make its flavors stand out? ZoOSh is a salad dressings, dips and mayonnaise brand from Australia. But it’s much more than that. ZoOSh doesn’t accept the status quo, ZoOSh is a flavor adventurer and a champion of flavors. Their various products are a wake up for the taste buds to not be satisfied with boring food. ZoOSh provide outstanding flavors that dare you and your food to be different. It’s for foodies who are not satisfied with the ‘same old’ and never get complacent with their food. It’s for anyone who wants a more interesting eating experience and wants to feel great about it. These are people who are always on the look-out for fresh produce, the latest and greatest in food trends, want to experiment with the flavors of their food and dare to be different!

We want your help in bringing alive this idea and show us why and how ZoOSh helps you dare to be different.

Through an inspirational poster with tagline, show us why and how ZoOSh dares you and your food to be different.

Format: Poster with tagline and text to describe the idea.

Discovering eYeka talents: creator of May - florieberrehar

By pernianfarahani on May 02, 2017 09:58 Featured Authors 0

Hello everyone!

As the days are getting longer and warmer on our side of the equator, the summer vibes are fast approaching and we’re getting ready to plan our holidays.

To keep up this summer-feeling, we will take you all the way to sunny Barcelona where we get the opportunity to learn about this month’s creator on eYeka, let us introduce you to our inspirational video maker; Florie Berrehar.

https://eyekaen.uservoice.com/assets/120138793/13124596_930908940341241_8746623502289409999_n_1_.jpg

Can you tell us a bit more about yourself and your story? What do you do besides your great creations on eYeka?

Besides eYeka I write a lot, I memorize the streets of Barcelona, try and improve my non skateboarding skills, eat morcilla con cebolla, run a lot, study philosophy at the university, shoot corporate films, try and learn Spanish, write scripts, shoot non-corporate films, and of course try to find more time to spend on eYeka.

You have been an eYeka member for about 3 years. Could you tell us when and why you decided to join this platform?

I have to admit I didn’t realize it had been 3 years… but that must explain why I don’t remember how I came across eYeka ! I guess I was wandering on the Internet, looking for a way to find clients. But what’s for sure is that eYeka has been a great discovery!

https://eyekaen.uservoice.com/assets/120138805/10404069_10205187978598314_3336085790177362290_n.jpg

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

First of all, I only subscribe to contests that awaken my appetite to create. Whenever I come across a brief that attracts me, there’s no turning back: my mind won’t stop thinking about it as long as I don’t encounter what I feel to be the correct idea. I don’t have a specific creative process. It’s more…and obsession that comes across my way.

Up until now, you have submitted 8 accepted entries and 4 prizes! Congratulations! How do you do it? What is your working process?

Well…I get an obsession and then I work hard to get rid of it, that’s the general process J

Every brief is a different story. Usually I write down dozens of creative routes until I encounter THE one. Then I start thinking in images, looking for the perfect setting, the perfect model,…and when I’m satisfied with all the preparation, I shoot. But I always do it because I like doing it. I reckon that’s the key.

Do you have a favorite entry that you are especially proud of? If yes, why this one?

Being proud of… Pride is a big word! Let’s say I’m happy to create content that the client will appreciate and enjoy. What makes me proud is to see people laughing or entertained by the videos I make. And the one that received the more enthusiasm has been the BIC 4 Colours. A love story, that speaks to everyone ;)

When did you realize that you wanted to be a video maker?

As far as I can remember I’ve always wanted to work in advertising. Not always for the same reasons, though. At 6 years old I wanted to be an advertising model for sneakers bars (so I could eat a LOT of junk for free!) then a few years later I understood I couldn’t possibly do it without becoming fat & greasy and that’s when my father bought a camera for family trips.

So I started to shoot. At first satirical commercials and then stupid insane short films. Years passed…and I bought myself a 5D. Now I just try and do what I do best. And what I do best is writing stories, mixing words, putting them into images.

What have you been able to do or to achieve with the prizes you have won?

The first prize I won has been like an electroshock. At that time I was planning on leaving Paris to start a new life in Barcelona,…but I had Everything in Paris. And Everything hold me back. Professional network, clients, friends, great IKEA bed, ex boyfriend, etc. And when I won my first prize, I climbed to the top of the shelf, grabbed my backpack and packed all my stuff. Two weeks later I was in Barcelona, starting to write my first long script.

If you could describe eYeka in 3 words, what would that be?

My monthly shot of EXCITEMENT & CHALLENGE that boosts and rewards my CREATIVITY

And at last, what advice would you give to new creators?

Just go for it and make sure you enjoy every step of the process! (That sounds very cliché, but in the end that’s the only thing that really matters…)

https://eyekaen.uservoice.com/assets/120138787/10690178_10205403554346863_4045105876277401919_n_1_.jpg

Thanks a lot for sharing your story Florie. Keep inspiring us and our creators and we can’t wait to see more of your videos in the future!

Get naked fruit convenience with Dole fruit cups

Get naked fruit convenience with Dole fruit cups

Fruit is such a great way to have something delicious and nutritious at the same time. But the process of getting to the eating part is tedious, isn’t it? First you wash the fruit, then you peel it, then you slice it and then finally you eat it. This becomes a hassle when you think about eating fruit. What if you could have the convenience of naked fruits, ready to be eaten? Dole is an all-natural brand of fruits. Unlike other ready to eat fruit brands which contain syrup and added preservatives, Dole fruit cups have real, peeled fruits, in 100% real fruit juice. It is a single serve, ready-to-eat, convenient cup of fruit that provides a healthy snack option for busy 20-40-year-old office going women, who are conscious about their health and wellbeing. In this age of instant gratification, where convenience is of utmost importance, Dole fruit cups offer the convenience of naked fruits in an easy to eat format. Can you help us tell a story based on this idea?

Tell us how Dole fruit cups are a convenient way of eating naked fruits through tongue-in-cheek and creative stories!

How will we interact with food in 2050?

By Ekaterina Pashina on April 26, 2017 12:06 Call for entries 0

Imagine how we will interact with food in 2050.

Eating and mobility have always been very close to each other. For many of us, food is the number one reason to visit new destinations. And we schedule our daily routines and plan routes around eating. 

As technology evolves, the future of food and mobility will continue to change in exciting ways. In the future, autonomous vehicles will be ubiquitous, and self-driving cars, trucks, drones, buses, and boats will keep regions running 24/7.  

How will trends in autonomous vehicles and dining converge?

Our sponsor, a research and innovation company, invites you to imagine how future mobility solutions will elevate the whole dining experience to make it more social, engaging and meaningful. Can you help?

Imagine a novel, engaging and social eating experience enabled by autonomous vehicles in 2050.

Format: Presentation with illustrations and answers to the mandatory questions.

Inspire bonding moments over sweet snacks!

Inspire bonding moments over sweet snacks

As people’s lives become ever busier, and commuting time gets longer, the moments we get to spend with our friends or our partners becomes rarer and therefore more precious. And, have you noticed that during these rare moments of downtime ‘together’, people are often in their own world? They may be sitting together at home watching 1 or multiple screens: watching TV whilst browsing on their phone or iPad, and engrossed in their own screens, or music, not really talking to each other.

Nestlé in the UK and Ireland wants to encourage people to take advantage of their precious moments together, and is looking for ideas that can help facilitate sharing occasions and enhance the time people spend together, and confectionery & sweets are a key part of existing sharing occasions.

Create a fresh and inspirational idea to facilitate sweet sharing moments among friends or partners.

Format: A presentation with a catchy name / headline, text and visuals (sketches, illustrations, pictures). You can feature one brand, or all of them. The point is that the idea can eventually be done for the 5 brands.
