Last week, as part of our celebration for reaching 25 million users, we announced the comeback of our largest crowdsourcing challenge — the Expose Our Logo contest.
Yes, it’s back and so are the exciting cash prizes! We’re giving away a whopping US$10,000 for the Grand Prize winner plus nine other special awards.
In case this is the first time you’re learning about this competition, it’s about exposing the Freelancer logo to as many people as possible and capturing it on video. That simple. This competition is open to anyone (with a registered Freelancer.com account), anywhere in the world. Jump to this page to find out more about the contest.
How can you get the chance to win the Grand Prize or any of the special rewards for that matter?
What’s in a Winning Entry
To win the Grand Prize, you should submit a high-quality video with creative, fun, and brilliant content that shows how you showcased the Freelancer logo to a large number of people. It’s important that your entry follows the terms and conditions of the contest.
In the Expose Our Logo 2015 challenge, the Grand Prize went to judsonbc from the Philippines. He spearheaded various activities to display our logo all over town. It required such paramount effort to show off our logo in so many ways and judsonbc and his team did it amazingly. Check out their winning entry.
How to Win the Special Awards
You can send your entries to compete for different prize categories BUT you can only win once. For example, you went to a popular tourist landmark to display our logo to a huge crowd. After submitting your video, you promoted your contest entry on Twitter and it got retweeted a lot of times. By doing so, you earned the chance to win one of these awards: Traveller, Advertiser, or Tweetcaster.
ADVERTISER (Most People Exposed To): $3,000
Go to a place where there’s massive foot traffic (think: train station, shopping malls, big outdoor events). Put our logo on banners and items you can give away, display it on an electronic billboard, whatever works for you. But is there something new you can do to display our logo to a large audience?
FLASHMOB (Most People Involved): $3,000
Are you planning to invite your entire neighborhood to expose our logo? In 2012, The dataexpert01 team involved around 3,000 people in exposing the Freelancer logo in the city of Chapainawabganj in Bangladesh. The effort paid off because they were the runaway winner in this category.
SUPERSIZE ME (Biggest Logo Feature): $3,000
We’re looking for a supersized hummingbird! Literally the biggest version you can possibly come up with. Be creative and don’t forget to capture on video how you did it.
TRAVELLER (Best Major Landmark): $1,000
Is there a tourist spot near you? Do a lot of people go there every day? Then this is your chance! Think of something interesting to do. Don’t just stand there holding a Freelancer banner. Remember to respect the people there, the rules (if any), and the landmark itself.
SUPERSTAR (Best Celebrity Cameo Appearance): $1,000
How is this even possible? Well, you need to have the connections (i.e. a friend works for a talent agency or a neighbor personally knows a local celebrity). But if there’s none, well you can find a way. Is a popular music artist about to have an album tour near you? Be there! For sure there will be a huge crowd too.
PARTY SOUL (Best Costumes): $1,000
We’ve seen people in hummingbird costumes before. You can wear something fancier if you want. Call the gang, put on costumes with more swag, and be ready to expose the Freelancer logo in front of many people.
VLOGGER (Most YouTube Views): $1,000
Upload your video on YouTube and get the most number of views to win this award. Share the YouTube link on your contest entry page. Also, don’t forget to use the competition’s official hashtags #ExposeOurLogo2017 and #EOL2017 when you upload your video on YouTube. We will require you to send us proof of the number of views you earned before the contest closes on September 20, 11:59 pm Eastern US time.
PAPARAZZI (Best Media Coverage): $1,000
Promoting Freelancer in a unique and impressive way could be your claim to fame. Be featured in the news, on community blogs, or even on a TV show! Just send us the links for validation.
TWEETCASTER (Most Retweeted): $1,000
This is a new award and probably one of the easiest to win! Are you active on Twitter? Well, you should be. Tweet your contest entry link and work to have the most number of retweets before the contest ends on September 20. Remember to use the contest hashtags #ExposeOurLogo2017 and #EOL2017 on your tweet.
