CreateAthon 2013

24 hours will make the world of difference for one Jersey charity

ORCHID launches the first UK CreateAthon® for Jersey charities, taking place on 7th - 8th November 2013

Here at ORCHID we’re committed to ‘Making a Difference’ (our MAD campaign) and our participation in this year’s CreateAthon® challenge  is one of our most exciting MAD initiatives yet!  Imagine the difference that a free £30,000 marketing campaign could make to your Jersey charity.  Along with our partners, that’s what we’re offering to one selected Island-based charity this November.

CreateAthon® is a 24 hour, work-around-the-clock creative blitz during which marketing, advertising and public relations firms around the world provide marketing services to non-profit organisations absolutely free.  Originally an American initiative, ORCHID is proud to be the first UK and European agency to participate as an official CreateAthon® agency partner.  We are now inviting applications from eligible Jersey charities who wish to be considered for selection as this years client.

Determined to develop a campaign that makes a real, sustained difference to the charity we work with, we have joined forces with the Jersey Evening Post, Channel 103fm and Mailmate Print to deliver a marketing campaign for one selected charity client worth in excess of £30,000 in fees, advertising and print.  Huge thanks to these brilliant partners who will enable the chosen charity to see their campaign come to life in print and on air.

In order to be considered as this year’s CreateAthon® client, simply download and fill in the form below and submit your application to ORCHID no later than 17:00 on Friday 4th October 2013.  We’ve tried to make the form as straightforward as possible, but feel free to contact us if you have any queries  - either email [email protected] or call 01534 888992.  Please note, by submitting your form you are agreeing to the terms and conditions outlined therein.

The ORCHID team will review all applications received by the deadline and invite a shortlist of three charities to present their applications to a judging panel at the ORCHID office on Wednesday 23rd October 2013.  You will need to be available on this day to attend.  The judging panel will be made up of representatives from ORCHID, the Jersey Evening Post and Channel 103fm and all decisions made by the panel are final.  The winning client will be announced on Friday 25th October, the CreateAthon® will take place on 7th November and the resulting campaign will run the same month.

We hope you are as excited by the CreateAthon® as we are and we look forward to receiving your application.
