Anyone interested in popularising, promoting or publicising EcoSanta to help educate the youngest generation into the importance of looking after Planet Earth is invited to enter one or both of these competitions.
Design an EcoSanta Outfit
The popularity of Christmas clothing around the month of December is very obvious. By designing a gorgeous EcoSanta outfit, this is an opportunity for anyone of any age with a creative design-flair to have the chance to display their talents and even win £100 if theirs is chosen winner.
The deadline for submissions of designs is May 30th, which gives plenty of time to come up with something that has all the 'ah' and 'wow' factors embedded in it.
Write an EcoSanta-themed Short Story
(under 1,000 words)
This competition has a closing date of September 30th and offers a great chance for writers - unknown, or seasoned and professional - to enter the unexplored land of EcoSanta and his potential, as a celebrity, to make a big impact on the global cultural climate. Particularly this applies to the western world, who in general are not very good at waste disposal.
Remember the pen is mightier than sword. Many great ideas, that later find their way into the culture, are seeded through story. Whether your story is fiction or fantasy doesn't matter.
Many people ask: What can one person do?
I was one of those people.
Yes, I did a lot of litter-picking, and still do, on a daily basis. But the BIG QUESTION took me longer to 'get my head round'. It was only with the idea of EcoSanta did I feel that here was a celebrity that everyone loved - particularly young children! As Ecologisers run a Young People's International Anti-litter Charity, we are in a wonderful position to start Santa's new career off, AND make him relevant the whole year round.
The EcoSanta posters all carry the same message - HELP ECOSANTA!
If you personally, would like to see the EcoSanta Concept grow and blossom in the next decade, here is an opportunity to do so. And, if your heart is in it, you might well be one of the winners!
