Absolut Vodka Nigeria is known for its collaborations within the art space. Naturally, they’ve tapped this constituency for a fantastic new campaign. The Absolut Creator Competition, in a brilliant initiative, helps in shining a spotlight on digital artists in Nigeria.
The digital art space in Nigeria is alive and blooming, gaining popularity by the day, especially with the youthful population. In recognition of the powerful combination of art and passionate youths, The Absolut Creator Competition wants digital artists to join them on their mission to create a better, more inclusive world, with Nigeria as the focus.
As art has and will always provide room for imagination, the competition’s objective is to use this as a force of change. The artists are expected to deliver their unique picture of what a better Nigeria could look like. They are also expected to be driven to bring their imagination to reality. This is a competition for people who are in touch with their society and have the zeal to participate in its development.
To this effect, the Absolut Creator Competition wants digital artists to create digital artwork with the Absolut bottle silhouette that puts in mind a specific theme under the general umbrella of positive change. They request that artists focus on their core theme: Everyone should be free to express themselves.
