Confidentiality rules on eYeka

By Ekaterina Pashina on October 18, 2016 17:17 Announcements 0

We know how proud you are of your creations and that you are always eager to share them with the world. However, please do not forget about the Confidentiality Rules on eYeka which are applied to all the entries you submit in contests.

These rules vary depending on whether your submission was selected as winning or not.

If your work was selected among the winners:  

  1. Winners must keep winning entries as strictly confidential.
  2. Winning entries can’t be used or communicated anywhere, including your portfolio, website and social media channels.
  3. If you won in a contest in which the name of the client was not shown, you must keep it confidential.

If you participated in a contest but your entry was not selected:

  1. If you want to use your work or to feature it publicly on your website, portfolio or your social channels all the brand’s materials (logo, name, trademarks, pack shots, end frames, audio tracks provided by the brand, etc) must be removed if the creator wants to use his submissions.
  2. You cannot make any reference to the client, its brands, its products and the contest on eYeka.
  3. If your entry did not win you can reuse your idea/footage in other contests after you remove all the brand’s materials from it.

We trust you on following these rules.  Otherwise this can lead to termination of your account on eYeka and legal actions from the brand, and we all hate what this happens.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at support-en@eyeka.com !

eYeka turns 10! And that's thanks to you! #eYeka10

By Natasha Miller on February 03, 2016 12:00 Announcements 1

Dear beloved creators and amazing community, 

Today, eYeka celebrates its 10th birthday! We are now grown-ups, building our personality a bit more everyday and soon enough, we will be going to parties without our parents! 

But before we start being self-centered (please allow us, just for this one article), we would like to share a special message with you guys.

THANK YOU! 

Thank you for your creativity.
Thank you for your imagination.
Thank you for making us see the world through such beautiful eyes.
Thank you for making us dream.
Thank you for being excited about each one of our contests.
Thank you for giving the brands a reason to work with us.
Thank you for your questions and tips that helped us get better. 
Thank you for giving your extra-valued point of view. 

We have grown and evolved throughout the years, and we are proud of who we are today. And we are who we are thanks to you. Therefore, we are, more than ever, proud of you.

 

eYeka was founded 10 years ago. Its founders, Gilles Babinet and Franck Perrier had a vision: in the future, everyone would be empowered to make a difference by contributing with her or his unique and innovative perspective on the world. Back then, the term « crowdsourcing » had not yet been invented, YouTube was a 1-year old, and Facebook had less than 10 million users. And the Nokia 1600 was the best-selling phone...

Since then, eYeka has pioneered a new trade: help brands reinvent themselves by leveraging the fresh creative ideas of a global community that now boasts more than 330,000 individuals from 167 countries. And more than 100.000 fresh ideas have been contributed so far, leading to more relevant communications, brand strategies, designs and product innovations.

All along 2016, we will be celebrating those 10 years: 10 years of fresh ideas, 10 years of talent, 10 years of great briefs from some of the world’s best brands, 10 years of entrepreneurship and craftsmanship… To start, have a look at the below infographic which gives you a brief timeline of eYeka’s evolution since 2006.

Find out more about the anniversary at #eYeka10.

 

Don't hesitate to post your comments, share your eYeka experience, give us insights... and send us cake! :) 

Thank you all again!

How eYeka community helped P&G to build SK-II Brand #ChangeDestiny

By Ekaterina Pashina on November 26, 2015 15:45 Announcements 0

Since 2014, eYeka’s community has worked on 13 projects with SK-II, P&G’s premium skincare brand. With more than 660 ideas from more than 700 participants, SK-II has brought to life #ChangeDestiny, its “biggest empowerment campaign” to date.

The first SK-II project was a video contest looking for emotional synergy with younger women. SK-II was extremely satisfied with the videos submitted by eYeka creators. The “Future Me” video for example, created by Oblikovsky, a young Ukrainian filmmaker and his team, not only was the most shareable video of the campaign, but it also became a reference when it comes to user-generated content in the entire category. You can see the video below as well as on the brand's website.

For me, it's very important to approach the brief as if you solve puzzles. And it's important to have the desire to realize potential of brand, not focussing on the monetary aspect. Pleased to realize that your ideas and your artistic vision can assess such major global brands. It inspires confidence and the desire to work and to develop further! Big thanks brand SK-II for the opportunity and eYeka for your support!

- Oblikovsky

The first winner of the contest was arthurchays from France with his beautiful video fil rouge - In your hands. You can see the video below as well as on the brand's website.

 This is a great format to try things , think outside the box ... It's good to be sincere in the ideas, use your brain and talk with your heart. Winning a prize is very nice! It can restore confidence, make you want to do other films. And especially judge its level at a given time . From my personal experience , I prefer to lose with a film I'm proud of that win with a movie I 'd botched. 

- Arthurchays

Check out the clients testimonials and see the whole story:

Consumers are part of the journey that is changing our destiny as a brand, and that’s amazing.

– Kylene Campos

Associate Marketing Director SK-II, P&G

 Thank you all who participated on SK-II projects! 

Keep up the great work and stay tuned for more upcoming contests!

New eYeka website

By Ekaterina Pashina on July 07, 2015 16:15 Announcements 0

Dear creators, Last month we released the brand new website version of eYeka website. We hope you like it! (We do ;) ). As you might remember we presented the previous version of eYeka in 2013. This followed by introduction of such new site features as Feedback Circle, new profile pages, creative score, new contest result page, which we hope let you express your talent to the fullest and enjoy your time on eYeka.   old eyeka   We were quite happy with this site, but we did not want to stop just there (cause there is no limit to perfection ;) ). We believed that there is always room for improvement and as a result eYeka team came up with a totally new website layout and a new (hopefully only positive) user experience. We were working on this version thinking about both, creators who have been with us for a while already and know the “playground” rules, as well as about those who see eYeka for the first time and try to understand what this whole crowdsourcing story is all about.   eYeka-Creators-Page-After   We hope you enjoy your new eYeka and we are looking forward to hearing what you think about it! Do you like the new design? Do you miss anything from the previous version? We would be happy to learn! (support-en@eyeka.com)   Your faithfully, eYeka team

We now accept documents in PDF format only

By Ekaterina Pashina on July 22, 2013 08:30 Announcements 0

Dear Creators, As you may have noticed on some of our contests we have restricted the format of the uploaded documents to PDF format only. From July 22nd this will be applied to all the text and presentations entries in order to simplify our media management and moderation processes. This means we DO NOT accept the following formats: *.doc;*.rtf;*.xls;*.pps;*.ppt;*.pptx;*.odp;*.ods;*.xlsx;*.odt;*.odg anymore. ONLY PDF!   We believe that there are several advantages of using PDF format: -          It is really easy to use! :) You will find dozens of PDF conversion tools on the internet; it will usually take you a couple of  clicks to convert your document to PDF! -          Your uploaded entries will look right on other people’s screens across different platforms including our clients’. -          You do not have to worry if the original look of your work is saved, as PDF files preserve the exact format and content of your original document. -          Your high-resolution images will be in a relatively small file format without a visible loss of quality. That will help you save time for the upload.   One of the software solutions we recommend is Adobe® Acrobat® XI PDF Creator. You can learn more about it here. You can also visit our knowledge base to read about the accepted formats.   And of course, do not hesitate to contact us via support-en@eyeka.com if you have any questions! Cheers! eYeka Community Team
