A video competition that, like the 500 Colored Pencils, favors waiting for good things to arrive. 1st prize: $500 and the 500 pencils.
The 500 Colored Pencils program supports UNESCO DREAM Centers – 1 set out of every 100 sold is donated to UNESCO to support arts education for underprivileged children around the world.
Create a video of up to 1-minute that proves that patience is a virtue.
The creator of Social Designer, Felissimo is a subscription based clothing and household goods company from Japan who believes that good design promotes happiness, well-being, and adds value to everyday life. The 500 Colored Pencils product introduces their subscription model to the world. Every month a set of 25 pencils is delivered to the purchaser; like a gift that reveals itself slowly over time, the full set of pencils is acquired over a period of 20 months. For every 100 boxes of pencils sent to subscribers Felissimo donates one set to the UNESCO/Tribute 21 DREAM Center initiative, an arts education program run by Felissimo and UNESCO to empower under-privileged children around the world through creative expression. This is the sixth in a series of competitions related to 500 Colored Pencils. You can view all the competitions to date here, and the 500 Colored Pencils website here.
