Viber, the country’s leading mobile messaging app known for its stickers that ooze with personality, is launching an exciting second run of its global sticker design initiative Sticky Fingers. This time around, Sticky Fingers focuses on having creatives from all over bring their favorite cities to life with the My City, My Vibe theme.
Stickers are a core part of Viber’s service and millions of people use them every day to convey an emotion, a reaction, or simply to share good vibes with their friends and families. In fact, Viber’s 600 million users sent more than 22 billion stickers last year. With this, Sticky Fingers 2 becomes a great opportunity for Filipino artists to showcase their design talent, represent their cities, each unique vibe they carry, and share it with the rest of the world.
20 finalists will be selected by Viber and its panel of judges, each to receive $1,000. From those top entries, 5 artists will be chosen to get the opportunity to work with the Viber design studio to develop their character into sticker packs, and a revenue share for every sticker sold of their design. Aside from these, the final five will of course receive exposure across Viber’s social media channels.
The competition is now open with Filipino creatives being able to send their entries up until November 18. As the 20 finalists will be picked based on the quality of their submissions, and not by their country of origin, the more entries the Philippines produces means higher chances for Pinoys to make it as finalists.
Stanislav Makarenko, aka ‘Drawk’ (the Selected Artist of the first Sticky Fingers) shares, “I have been drawing and sketching characters since 2008, but being Selected for Viber’s first Sticky Fingers Creative Invite was a dream come true,” says Drawk. “It was such an incredible feeling to be selected, but also a great responsibility. I got the opportunity to work alongside professional artists at an international level, to travel more and now my sketches are in a sticker pack that will be used around the world. I’m looking forward to helping choose the Selected Artists of ‘My City, My Vibe’ and I encourage all entrants to get inspired, be yourself and let your original style come through in your sketches.”
Sticky Fingers 2 My City, My Vibe sticker design initiative will be accepting submissions until November 18 through www.viber.com/MyCityVibe. The 20 finalists to be announced on December 9, and the 5 selected artists on December 15.
