Imagine having your artwork ply the streets on a public bus!
Calling out to all young artistic budding talents in Singapore! You can now look forward to a larger-than-life showcase opportunity – imagine having your artwork ply the streets on a public bus! Organised by KIT KAT and *SCAPE, “Yer Big Break” campaign runs from April to July, and aims to “give a break” to young artists by providing them with highly visible platforms to showcase their ideas.

This campaign aims to recognize the changing perceptions and attitudes among today’s youths, as well as their desire to express themselves on multiple platforms. It also serves as an innovative opportunity to hear from the youths of today what taking a break means to them as they can now submit artworks that represents their own personal interpretations of "Taking a break".

In addition, the competition will also be reaching out to the youths and their peers via both online and offline channels such as in-school activations at tertiary institutions as well as in-store promotional collaterals at all major retail supermarkets and convenience stores. Kick-starting the competition call-out, commuters can now already eyeball the inspiring works of successful working professionals with a passion for the arts, including Beru Betto and Pure Libre, whose designs cover buses along the city routes.

Submitted artwork will be posted online on *SCAPE’s Facebook page, and the winning entry will be showcased on four buses making their way around Singapore! Entries will be chosen based on various criteria, including the creativity level shown, and the relevance to the theme. Ten finalists will then be shortlisted and posted online for voting.
