Three have just announced an exciting new illustration competition to mark their re-branding.
Three will be using some of Ireland’s leading professional illustrators in their upcoming campaigns but they’re also supplementing that commitment with an exciting competition open to all but certainly appealing to young design & illustration professionals, recent graduates and students.
Each artist must respond to the simple brief http://www.three.ie/blankcanvas and upload their entry to the site.
All entries will be featured in a gallery style website along with all entrants contact details.
The first prize is 2000euro, an iPhone 4 on the Three network and your work on a limited edition iPhone 4 cover! Which seems to be enough of an incentive to enter to me but your work could also be featured in a future full campaign too. This is definitely one of those rare cases where entering will actually be good for your portfolio and your bank balance!
The three category winners will receive 500euro each and be featured in a launch event in a Dublin exhibition space coinciding with the announcement of the overall winner.
BRENB (that’s me!) will also act as a mentor for the winner, to assess their portfolio and to advise on how to further their career.
The judging panel will be made up of BRENB/Bren Byrne – Illustrator and director of The Small Print, Elaine Carey – Sales and Marketing Director for Three & Shay Madden – Creative Director with McCann Erickson.
