HOW TO ENTER

A competition where everyone can compete with innovative ideas/ concepts for the screens within Digital Out of Home. In 2010, Ocean Outdoor UK organized the first Digital Creative Competition to encourage and accelerate new opportunities in screen advertising.

Fourteen editions later, the technology has transformed outdoor advertising from static to subtle motion, full motion, interactive, streaming, augmented reality and 3D simulations. Ocean continuously invests in new innovative opportunities and products liked ARDOOH, AI Photo Booth and DeepScreen ALIVE® to enable brands to have better contact with their target groups. With the right support technology and insights, the possibilities for brands, agencies and the general public are endless.

STEP 1. UNLOCK YOUR CREATIVITY

Develop your concept based on the above summary. Keep it relevant to the brand, purpose and medium.

In addition to your pictures, we also want a short explanation of your idea. Based on the below format:

  • Describe your idea
  • Describe the clients challenge
  • Describe your solution
  • Any special requirements to achieve about solution?
  • Expected effect and outcome?

Bare in mind that we want to read how you see your idea live, on which screens, how it fits with the brand, who you want to reach with it, etc.

STEP 2. VISUALISE YOUR IDEA

To keep the participation process as simple as possible, we ask you to make a number (max. 5) visualizations of your concept. We have a good dose of templates and other assets for you that you can use for visualization. The clearer the better, but remember that we do not need “final artwork” yet.

To make it even easier, you can also draw your idea on paper or sticky notes. Take pictures of it and send it in.

STEP 3. SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY

Submit your idea using our Entry form.

When we have received your work in good order, you will receive a confirmation via e-mail and you will participate in the competition.

No logos! Please avoid using branding in your submissions. All contributions needs to be anonymous (non branded by the participating School) for the DCC jury to validate each submission in a neutral and fair light. Client branding in the submissions is of course ok.

Make sure you have read the terms and conditions. By submitting your work, you accept the terms.

PRIZE

Entries will be judged by a jury of 11 senior advertising, PR and Out Of Home experts.

Gold Prize is a sum of 1 000 000 SEK that is fully usable on any of the digital screens within Ocean Outdoor Sweden’s network packages, including DeepScreen™ *

*The cost of the DeepScreen™ license will be deducted from the total value.

Terms & Condition apply.

CREATIVE BRIEF

We are looking for creative concepts that take full advantage of the opportunities and push the boundaries within Digital Out of Home.

We are open to all ideas and want to ensure that participation is easy and accessible to all.

Whether your idea has been developed in / on a post-it note, After Effects or Photoshop, it does not matter. Everything is allowed as long as the idea is ready and it meets a number of selection criterias. For example, the idea must be original, and it must not yet have run on another media platform. In addition, all ideas must follow the rules of the Swedish Advertising Code.

If you struggle to visualize your idea, no problem.

We have both a Campaign Preview Tool where an idea can be tested and various templates where ideas can come to life. As stated, it is also possible to make a sketch on paper.

BE INSPIRED BY DOOH

The evolution of the medium facilitates use of both full motion imagery and integrated technology, to deliver emotionally engaging campaigns.

It has also taken a fundamental leap forward in its fame, its power and its potential for brands. From being an effective OOH communication platform providing huge success for brands, it is now a platform that delivers this as well as extensive amplification across social media, meaning the point of influence for brand messaging is not just people in front of the screen, but extends to global eyeballs.

See video below for inspiration on how to bring your IDEA to life.
