We want your E STINGS

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

Once again, E4 and Creative Review are giving you the chance to get your work on TV via our E STINGS competition.

As ever, it works likes this: we want you to take the E4 logo and create an original brand sting that can be played out on the E4 channel. It can be live action, it can be animated, it can be 2D, 3D, 4D. It can be hi-fi, lo-fi, big-budget or no-budget. Simply download the E4 logo and a selection of soundbeds here and get going. The only rules we are cruelly forcing upon you are thusly:

•    (a) it has to be something E4 can show in the daytime. So ease up on the exploding heads, guts, animal torture, toilet-based unpleasantness, full frontal nudity, etc. We won’t be able to show it, which makes all of your lovely effort unfortunately a bit…pointless.
•    (b) It HAS to be EXACTLY 10 seconds long. If it’s not 10 seconds long IT WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED BY THE JUDGES. Sorry, but we’re feeling a bit strict this year. To make things easier we’re providing you with a choice of 10 second audio beds which you are welcome to use in your E STING (but feel free to use something of your own if you prefer!)
•    (c) It HAS to have the E4 logo in it… But you probably knew that.

After we’ve received all the entries, the judges will pick their 15 favourites to be played out on-air.

These 15 finalists will then be set a brand new task: to submit a storyboard or on-air treatment in response to a mystery brief. All of the finalists will be invited to a little soiree in London where we’ll announce the winners. First prize takes home £5000 and two runners up will each get £500.

All you need to do is submit your E Sting in one of the accepted formats (wmv, mov, mpg, 3gp, mp4, mpeg) and fill out the entry form at the E4 website. Your E STING must not be more than 20mb in size.

All the details, entry form, rules, downloads etc can be found here

Deadline 25 August

Oh, and we’re also looking for designers and illustrators to create background images for e4.com and will be offering prizes for the best. Go to e4.com/estings for details.
