Brief
Show us how you would overcome the barriers to saving by making it easy and enjoyable to save.

CONTEXT


Saving is not a chore and spending all you have is not a solution to making your life better. We want you to break down the barriers to saving so show us it can be easy and automatic by finding new ways to save!

BRIEF

Solve people’s lack of savings by making it easier to save for those who don't, or for those who already do, to save more. Think of a cool and easy way to help more people save every day. It could be an app, an online tool, or a program at the neighborhood level that’s very grassroots.
Could your idea become viral and benefit from the combined energies of others?

Illustrate your ideas through designs, collages, Powerpoint presentations, sketches, text, prints, short videos, animations, or testimonials explaining not only HOW your idea can make people save now, how it can change their relationship with their money and make them enjoy it, and also WHY saving this way would make them feel better about the way they’re managing their money.

BE CAREFUL! We are not talking about saving on purchases, with coupons for example. But putting money aside as savings.

MANDATORY - Please answer these questions in your media description, they won’t affect in anyway the Jury’s decision! ;)

1.Do you have a savings account?
2.Which company/brand is your primary retail bank?
3.Have you ever had an account with an online or direct bank?
4.Do you consider yourself more a saver or a spender?
