Under 30? Make an Award Show Sacrifice

Some award shows are worth more than others......and the 2009 YoungGuns Call for Entry campaign - awardshowsacrifice.com - will help clarify this for young and emerging talent.
YoungGuns view is that whilst there are a number of award shows that are without doubt worth entering across your career; the truth is that if you are young or emerging talent there is only one award that really matters - YoungGuns.

In the Award Show Sacrifice site other awards can be sacrificed in a number of different ways, to earn FREE entries into YoungGuns. This provides a genuine opportunity for emerging and young talent get more of their work seen and potentially awarded, raising their profile and fast tracking their careers.

The site allows users to upload award images that may wish to add to the award sacrifice selection, however each user only gets one go at sacrificing an award so choose wisely. The site is linked up with a number of social media channels so sharing the sacrifice is easy.

Says Kristian Barnes, co-founder YoungGuns: "awardshowsacrifice.com is a genuine opportunity for emerging and young talent. As each sacrifice earns free entries, it provides them with the ability to submit a wider range of their work and demonstration of their talent in the show that counts the most - YoungGuns. 
"awardshowsacrifice.com was inspired by CP+Bs 'Whopper Sacrifice' campaign for Burger King from earlier this year, and we would like to thank to CP+B for allowing us to adapt it."

Award Show Sacrifice continues YoungGuns' annual tradition of irreverent and a sometimes controversial approach to their award entry promotion activity, which in past years has included - Quit in Style, Let us be your first, Worth the Pain and Sorry!.
