I also like to be described as original (I’ve found thought that it isn’t always in a good way, you know the way people are described as question marks? Well there you go!) I found out however that originality is also something that you can be rewarded for, yyippeeee!
I guess writing down my every whim, insecurity and boy drama does count as being somewhat original in my own way, maybe. So when I came across the 2011 Stoli Original Fund campaign I figured I’d spread the word! (After all who doesn’t want to be in with a chance of pocketing $1,000 – show of hands… thought so!)
Do any of you have an original or inspirational idea? Why not unleash your creativity in the original fund competition to be in with a change to win a grand!?
The 2011 Stoli Original Fund rewards genuine originality, whether it’s launching a unique recyclable fashion label, starting a vertical neighbourhood garden, or starting up your own fabulous blog (ahem), as long as it’s original you’re in with a chance to win the cash from the Stoli Original Fund to help realise your dream!
How you can get involved:
Over the next five months (May-September 2011), The Stoli Original Fund will give three members of the public the chance to put $1000 each towards their prized, original idea.
Frederick Duarte, Brand Manager, Suntory Australia says: “Stoli is the world’s most original vodka and we want to reward the genuine originality of Australians with the 2011 Stoli Original Fund. We’re excited to uncover some real talent and by offering a platform to showcase original ideas, we hope to help original people unleash their dream idea and turn it into a reality.”
To enter, entrants must upload to the Stoli Vodka Australia Facebook page an image that captures their original idea, along with a 200 word or less blurb explaining what the original idea is, why it is original, and how a $1000 Stoli Fund could help make it happen. The Stoli team will shortlist the five best and most original ideas of each three rounds and the Facebook community will decide the winner by voting for their favourite – the entry that exemplifies originality, creativity and general genius!

So what are you waiting for? I think my idea will centre around making guys reply girls text messages – never mind the $1,000 Stoli Original Fund prize, I recon I’d be eligible for a Nobel Peace Prize if I invented that! Ha!
