PPH Contest – Let’s Celebrate The Art Of Living!!!


Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrating her 90th birthday this year. Can you believe it? What a year! Her majesty’s life story must certainly be a captivating one, full of untold, unexplored tales and fascinating events, and we will probably never know anything of these.

We feel, though, that this is just the sort of narrative that can capture a person’s wild imagination.

The Queen of England is certainly one of the most iconic figures in the world today, and is a great inspiration to her many admirers around the world, but we’re positive you have at least one person in your own life who exudes the same kind of charm and allure as Her Majesty. Someone who has their own story to tell.

Or perhaps you are that person, with your own exciting story to tell.

One thing we know for sure – the story deserves to be told!

And so we have come up with an exciting contest for you and your imagination – a creative brief. And here it is: Life Story.

It’s as simple as that.

Tell us a story that matters to you, in whatever format you prefer. Make us laugh, cry, clap, or cheer for you. This is your chance to charm the world and be heard!

We are looking for something that could eventually make a terrific PeoplePerHour souvenir (and we’ll even feature your name on it!).  Would you like us to use elements of your story to create a unique post card?  Or maybe a cool poster, mug, notebook, or t-shirt? We’ll even buy a billboard to get your message across if we have to!

If you’d like to share your story with the world, have at it! Go wild! We want to see our inbox bursting at the seams with all your submissions!

Submissions will be accepted in the following formats:
*Design concept
*Written content
*3D artwork
*Product design
*any other format fitting this brief

All submissions must be received no later than 9 May 2016

    Rule 4. No artist worth their salt would or should agree to that. All submissions belong to PPH your ip is no longer your own even if you don’t win. Really? Nice idea for a competition but why be greedy and claim all rights in perpetuity?

    ‘By submitting your work in any format, you grant PeoplePerHour worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual right and license to use, reproduce, distribute, store, transmit, broadcast, publish, publicly perform and publicly display the content, in whole or in part.’

    Ha. So you own everything and one lucky lucky boy or girl gets a gift voucher in exchange? Why not go the whole hog and pay them in ‘experience’ or ‘exposure’?

    Please, no one sign away their rights for the small chance of a gift voucher.

    Hello, All!

    My name is Juste and I’ve recently joined the team @PeoplePerHour!

    I see that some of you have concerns regarding the copyright ownership. These are all fair comments, so I want to take a moment to explain why we included that rule.

    First of all, the author’s name will be featured on all physical products that/if we choose to produce. We won’t use these products for commercial purposes. In case this changes, we’ll get back in touch with the author and negotiate different terms.

    It’s likely we’ll publish some of the submitted artworks on other sites (always giving credit to the author); that’s why we wanted to avoid the time-consuming distribution approval processes.

    This contest is meant to be a fun exercise for the creative minds! We have no problems removing that rule if it would make you feel more comfortable submitting your artworks. Give me a shout! 🙂


  • Tulisanes

    This is a GREAT IDEA that i’ll give for free.

    The last season of X-Factor UK had 4 Filipina sisters audition for the contest, and their remarkable talents endeared them not only to the British public but to millions globally with the netizens of the internet. Up to now the lovable four sisters who call themselves 4TH IMPACT are still making waves in Britain long after X-Factor ended.


    In the above Youtube audition of theirs, that is gathering a record-breaking 47 million views and counting (only a few months after being uploaded) shows at 6:50 Simon Cowell asking 4th Impact why they chose X-Factor to compete in. After getting a reply that the sisters wanted to “to see” and audition in front of Simon Cowell, Simon pressed on byvasking what else. Then unexpectedly, the cute sisters replied, “WE WANTED TO SEE QUEEN ELIZABETH.”

    When the queen celebrates her 90th birthday this year, it will be a gem of a wonderful idea to invite 4th Impact to sing and perform on her birthday. You’ll never regret it and can only thank me for the idea in retrospect! 😉

    Please watch the short but entertaining video and you’ll understand better.

    I’d create something in honor of my cancer-surviving superman of a husband but i dont want my creation to be just given away to be used however PPH deems it can whether i win or not. Not worth it.

  • Mohab Hassan Othman

    The idea is brilliant , creative and I am interested but the amount of prize is quite low and the time line from 12 April to 9 may is not enough time to think , start and create a great work .

  • Md Mahmudar Rahman

  • zulfiqar Ahmed

    Very very interesting Idea We should join this contest and inshallah win this contest.

  • Asesh Datta

    When was the last time you have done something for the first time?
    I find this initiative appropriately answer the above question. Let us do things for the first time everyday and every moment. Is that not an “Art of Living”?
    I think the greatest motivator for living is to have an “Insight for Innovation” all the time.
    “People Per Hour” this kind of “TO DO IS TO BE” attitude.
    Appreciate the effort. All is well.

  • Arthur

    It is more than the prize. It is the potential of positive energy.
