Creative briefs come in all shapes and sizes, but opportunities to create work for one of the most popular and ubiquitous brands in there world don’t come round very often. That’s what makes this one so exciting, with our friends over at Talenthouse on the hunt for artists, designers, filmmakers and animators to create artwork for Spotify’s new #nowfeeling campaign which is built on the way music inspires and informs our relationships with the world, and each other.
The challenge is to show what music means to people and how it relates to our memories, our loved ones and our sense of identity. Entrants should consider how they can engage the 18 to 24-year-old audience through an original visual or 15 to 30 second film, and the winning artist will receive part of a £5,000 prize pool, exposure across Spotify’s social media channels and the chance to have future work commissioned by the music mega-site.
Nikki Lambert, Spotify’s marketing director for Europe, said: “We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Talenthouse to connect with thousands of fantastic creatives around the world. We are really excited to see how the creative community responds to the brief, and we look forward to seeing some inspiring stories about the power of music in connecting us all.”
The deadline for entries is 16 June and the winner will be announced on 27 June. For more details and to upload entries, filmmakers and animators should visit this link while artists and designers can get involved here.
