The Chip Shop Awards…

8 08 2012

There are plenty of ways to kill creativity.

“Let’s get back to reality.”

“I’m not saying you’re wrong but…”

“I know the Client and they won’t like that.”

“I know I’m not an art director but….”

In my industry, these are phrases a creative department really don’t want to hear.

Especially coming from someone like me who sits on the wrong side of the creative fence.

I’m sure plenty of great ideas have died because of the subjectivity of a few people.

Saying that, some well and truly do not deserve to see the light of day.

Which is why I love the Chip Shop Awards.

For those of you who don’t know these awards:

The Chip Shop Awards is about fostering and recognising creativity with no boundaries and no rules. It’s an international creative awards, open to anyone with great ideas.”

It’s a lot of fun and there are some great pieces of work there, most of which will never see the light of day.

They’ve recently run a one-off award in light of the Olympics.

The Fauxlympics.

It’s all about helping out LOCOG by ruling on what will and will not be allowed in terms of advertising during the Olympics.

I had an idea and the creative in charge very kindly humoured me and it’s been entered:

Vote for me!

If you happen to be on facebook and fancy adding your vote for my entry, click here.

If you don’t, I’ll lose.

And I’m a bad loser.

But take a look none the less.

Thar be genius in them there hills.
