The aim of this contest is to select three finalists who will shoot videos for Tropicana.

How it works: After reading the full brief, come up with a story for Tropicana and pitch it to us. In order to help us understand the story, you can show us a storyboard (sketches, pictures) of what the scenes will look like, or tell us the story in your own words (story outline). Tropicana will select two finalists who will receive production grants of €3,000 each to produce the video. The finalists selected will win a prize of €9,000, € 5,000 for 1st and 2ndplaces respectively.

There are people who live life with a lot of natural positive energy. Their secret is actually within our reach! It’s Tropicana, a juice made of 100% pure squeezed oranges and nothing else. By using the power of fruits to nourish their everyday optimism, you can feel good inside and out!

Tropicana believes that the natural goodness of fruit brings the best out of people. That the power of fruit can wake your senses, thrill your taste buds and make every moment just that bit better. Tropicana nourishes people’s natural optimism, brings out the best out of them and this optimism can reach others to inspire, entertain or amaze them. Can you make it spread?

Défi Créatif

Invent an original and surprising story in which Tropicana nourishes someone’s optimism and impact others. Pitch it to us by describing or sketching the key visuals and story elements.

Don't just show happy people drinking orange juice. We want a real story, and to be surprised!

BIG IDEA: You don’t just drink Tropicana, you feel it! Tropicana nourishes your optimism. It awakens your senses, thrills your taste-buds and takes you from ‘just functioning’ to ‘100% alive’. That is why we can say that Tropicana makes you feel good inside and out.

STORYTELLING: Tropicana gives people an optimism that is contagious. The story you tell should be much focused on humans and be emotional. The typical story will show a talent, performing something spectacular or exciting with optimism and joy. This optimism is contagious. Every person who is part of the scene becomes happy and sees life at a new perspective.

Important: Tropicana should be present at each stage and be the center piece of the story. Not only the starter.

  • Bring to life the idea that Tropicana nourishes your optimism and spreads to others.
  • Create emotions such as surprise, happiness, warmth. .
  • Magnify Tropicana’s uniqueness: the power of fresh fruits that comes from the sun. It means you will have to show fresh oranges and a lot of sunshine!.
