Contest Brief

[url removed, login to view] has reached 25 Million users! This would have been impossible without the help from our Freelancer Family — which includes you! You can view some of the amazing stories behind this significant milestone here: [url removed, login to view]

To celebrate we’re bringing back our ‘Expose The [url removed, login to view] Logo’ contest, and offering $25,000 USD in prizes!


WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
It’s simple. Go out, and show off the Freelancer logo to as many people as you possibly can — and capture it all on video.

Go solo, or find a team. The most viral, inspiring, creative, and publicly engaging entries will win a total of $25,000 USD in 10 different prize categories.


WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF PREVIOUS ENTRIES?

We’ve seen epic entries in the previous Expose Our Logo contests: there were those who organized their own Freelancer events; some put our logo on billboards, on a bus, on a tower in the middle of the city; others have done extreme activities like sky-diving and bungee jumping, and took our logo with them. We’ve seen people display the Freelancer logo literally everywhere!

Visit [url removed, login to view] to see some video clips from the past competitions.


WHAT RULES DO I NEED TO FOLLOW?
All videos must feature the ‘[url removed, login to view]’ version of the logo which is available in our media kit (which we attached below)!

The length of your video should be 2-3 minutes. We accept the following formats: *.mov; *.avi; *.mpeg.

Please read the terms and conditions below to get an understanding of any other restrictions you need to be aware of!

    i really wonder how is the Great Pyramids , Alexandria Bibliotheca ( the second biggest library in the world ) & a 700 years old citadel isn't the top landmarks while even in your description page of the contest you used the pyramids as the icon of this prize ,,, my respect to the winner , his country & every place on this planet but it's very disappointing the effort & hundreds of KM traveling for the 2 of the top landmarks on this planet to be treated at last the same rating of entries that is in a zoo , a town market or a bridge , that's so silly , i really regret that i was a part of this contest ...

    just my personal professional opinion, your 2015 and 2017 categories / winners should have been different in terms of the concept that they presented. 2015 we saw competitions and gathering / parades which has again been done in 2017 videos. Its like the concept has been blindly copied year on year. i have not watched all the videos but certainly those videos which presented a totally different angle of how the freelancer brand has been presented/exposed should NOT be the same in the underlying concept year after year. THIS IS NOT 2015, its 2017 already.

    No Offence but really Disappointed that few categories were not judged properly. For Advertiser I think some other team should have won as their video definitely showed huge crowd. I also checked the g. drive of the winner but all the videos were just few seconds only. Not a Fair Judgement.

    With added categories:

    We'd like to thank every single person who took the time to take part in our biggest contest to date. You're all amazing.

    And talented too, you made our decisions very tough.

    After a long and difficult deliberation, today we're announcing the winners who take their share of US$25,000.

    During the judging process, it became clear that a 'Most Inspiring (WINspirational)' category along with a 'Best in Cinematography and Editing (Pixel Perfect)' category would make the final list a stronger representation of what was entered.

    To that end, we had to cut the 'Best Media Coverage (Paparrazi)' category and the 'Most Retweeted (Tweetcaster)' category, both of which were lacking entries we felt were compelling enough to win and so they were substituted.

    The additions of 'Most Inspiring (WINspirational)' category along with a 'Best in Cinematography and Editing (Pixel Perfect)' category felt more in keeping with the spirit of the Expose our Logo contest.
