Jukin Media works with brands every day to license incredible UGC, the likes of which is seen on their channels FailArmy and People Are Awesome, and in campaigns for the world’s biggest brands. This contest will allow creatives to uncover the creative potential of the wealth of UGC available for the social, digital and TV campaigns they ideate and create.

Working with Creativepool, the creative industry network, Jukin Media is opening their library of 50,000 videos to creatives in the UK and all over Europe to unleash the creative power of UGC.

This collaboration with Jukin Media will bring the power of the largely untapped resource of organic UGC to the forefront of the creative industry’s mind. I cannot wait to see the submissions from the community.”
