The challenge

You'll be briefed by a charity or NGO about their digital challenge. Then there's just 24 hours for you to come up with a creative insight and explain how your digital solution uses a maximum of three social media platforms in new and exciting ways to move the brand forward. This will be judged by a selection of industry experts before the winner is crowned live at the festival.
