E4 and Creative Review Magazine are currently running a competition to design and produce stings (the little channel ident sequences shown before programmes) for E4. The winning stings will be shown on E4 as well as featured on the competition web site. The main winner will also receive £15,000 to develop more stings for the channel. Two runners up will each be given Â£1500 worth of equipment and ten more runners up will get free subscriptions to Creative Review.
They are looking for funny and unusual sequences which must feature the E4 logo. The logo and optional music can be downloaded from the web site. Apart from some imagination you will also need access to Mini DV, BetaSP or Digi Beta equipment as these are the only tape formats that they will accept.
The deadline for submissions is 14 September 2004.
Go and check out the competition web site for all the details and rules as well as examples of last year’s entries.
