In the lead up to the 2019 federal election, OCAD University has partnered with Instagram to give students the opportunity to create an “I Voted” sticker that will be available in Instagram Stories. The goal of the competition is to leverage the widespread reach of Instagram to encourage civic engagement for the upcoming Canadian federal election.
Over 500 million people across the world use Instagram Stories, and this fall Canadians will be able to use this platform to tell their community that they voted in 43rd federal election by using this interactive “I Voted” sticker on Instagram.
This two-phase competition will commission up to 10 students to design an “I Voted” sticker for Canada, with one winning student working on the final design on Instagram. To facilitate this, the winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to San Francisco where they will meet with the Instagram team and finalize their design. The winner will also receive $5,000 cash!Any taxes (federal, state, provincial/territorial, and local) and all expenses not specifically mentioned herein, are not included and are solely the trip recipient’s responsibility, including, but not limited to: hotel taxes, additional ground transportation at the trip recipient’s destination(s), carrier fees, government charges, room service, bag check fees, parking fees, laundry service, food, beverages, merchandise, souvenirs, telephone calls, tips, gratuities and service charges. Transportation carrier and hotel policies and regulations apply. Travel and lodging are subject to availability.
The second phase of the competition is only open to the winners of the first phase.
Deadline: July 6, 2019
The submissions will be evaluated by a Jury comprised of OCAD U faculty and Instagram employees. The results will be highlighted on the competition website, ivotedocadu.ca. In addition to the $250 commission fee, three additional prizes will be awarded.
