Right then, there’s £500 up for grabs for the most imaginative way of getting into the YCN Piñata. Mine arrived last week and I still haven’t come up with anything special so I’m opening it up to you guys. I don’t have a lot of time, and I don’t have a lot of money (there’s a budget of about a fiver) so if you send through an email and it ends up winning then I will split the winnings with you. Email with ‘I want £250’ as the subject line.
‘50 Piñatas will be sent to 50 different people, teams and studios internationally. Each has a unique mix of surprises inside relating to this year’s YCN Awards, and is of solid and sturdy build. The challenge is to break open the Piñata in an interesting way, the meaning of ‘interesting’ is open to interpretation.’
