Brief

Context

Young women nowadays are confident, independent and sassy. They are fed up with the cheesy and fuzzy love stories, in which a girl is always waiting for her charming prince to come for her, or anxiously expect her husband to surprise her only on a Valentine’s Day…

Pond’s wants to celebrate modern women in love. Pond's believes that love is free of forms and shapes. It can be differently delightful, romantic and full of creativity when the ladies take the lead.

Creative Challenge

Creates “a moment of love” by showing us what happens when the girl takes the lead.

Your entry should be engaging, sharable and really capture “love” in this moment. Think about what your loveable, witty, confident, active and modern heroine could do to take a lead on love. Give your idea a smart twist and make something lovely, delightful, interesting or surprising happen.

Don’t make a long or heart-breaking story. Put a smile on audience’s face and make it viral and sharable, something that people will connect with and will pass on. Make the girls identify themselves with the heroine and the guys die for this kind of girlfriend. And please think beyond cliché and capture the modern moment with a bit of wit.

It can be from a slice of your life, the stories of your friends, or even a bit from some interesting movies or fictions but with a fresh and smart touch. It can be romantic, warm-hearted, witty smart or even a bit funny.
