Do you think you are God’s gift to graphic design; or perhaps the next hotshot commercial director? Maybe you are. But there is only one way to find out.
Rebel designers and visionaries are invited to show off their creative streak and visual genius in Pony Footwear’s digital film and poster art competition billed “Show Off.” A competition open to everyone, each contestant is expected to interpret Pony Footwear’s tagline “Let’s Get It On” using imagery, digital design and short narrative.
There are two categories for this competition, namely: the Digi-Film Contest, for which participants are encouraged to submit an original 60-second short video that must highlight the image of any Pony footwear and may also contain digital animation and text; and the Digital Art Poster Contest, wherein participants are expected to produce original photo which should have a title, a short narrative describing the concept and a clearly visible image of Pony Footwear. Contestants may send in more than one entry.
The “Show Off” contest begins on June 15 and will run until October 15, 2011. Entries will be judged on concept and story (50%), visual impact (30%) and number of online votes (20%). The best part is the prize that awaits each winner of the Digi-Film and Digital Art Poster categories: First prize is P40,000 cash plus P10,000 worth of Pony shoes; Second prize is P20,000 cash and P5,000 worth of Pony shoes; and Third price is P10,000 cash and P5,000 worth of Pony shoes.
Pony is an American brand of footwear, founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1972. Pony has since become a top global athletic brand and, by the ‘80s, the brand had been worn by champion athletes in the World Cup, Super Bowl, NBA and the likes.
A 2001 re-launch of the brand, Pony footwear became associated entertainment celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg and Paris Hilton. Rebel rockers like Staind, Limp Bizkit and Korn—whose lead singer, Jonathan Davis, even had his own signature Pony shoes that he wore during live performances.
Pony’s image thrives on breaking conventions and revolutionary attitude. The PONY “Show Off” digital art competition hopes to capture the youthful exuberance and the fighting spirit of its users, whose talents and vision might just be the beginning of a new generation finally taking over.
