Competition with a capital ‘C’

Creative Clyde Competition

14 Mar 2013 – A new design competition to showcase the breadth and depth of local creative talent has been launched by Creative Clyde (in association with leading creative marketing magazine, The Drum).

The design competition is built around the distinctive ‘C’ in the Creative Clyde logo. In line with the original branding strategy, entrants are invited to use their imagination and creativity to fill the ‘C’. The competition organisers are hoping to attract a wide variety of entries using the likes of graphics, video, animation, illustration, photography and 3D visuals.

Creative Clyde, the fast growing centre for media, technology and creatively minded businesses in Glasgow, will award the winning designers £2,000, to be invested in the growth of their business. The winning design will also be featured as part of the international marketing campaign to promote Creative Clyde.

Tiernan Kelly, General Manager, Film City Glasgow, said, “I think this is a great opportunity for all types of creative businesses to showcase what Glasgow has to offer. There’s a thriving creative scene in Glasgow and competitions like this one staged by Creative Clyde help to draw attention to the depth of design talent here in the city.”

David Hartley, Senior Manager, Creative Industries, Scottish Enterprise, said, “This design competition is about building on Scotland’s strong heritage in the creative industries and providing a showcase for the diversity and quality of creative work.

“It’s also a great way to raise the profile of Creative Clyde and to have a conversation with more companies in the sector. I’d encourage every design company to get involved, as taking part could also lead to new networking opportunities and new collaborative business growth opportunities.”

After the top five entries have been selected, the ultimate winner will be identified through a public vote on Creative Clyde’s Facebook page. Deadline for receipt of entries is March 28th 2013.
