You are young at heart. You have passion for your life. You are adventurous and have no fear to try anything new and fun. You know that life can be so dull and boring if you don't dare to inject fun, excitement and surprises. A bit of a challenging spirit can make a difference and change our lives in big and small aspects.

KIA, as a world-leading automotive brand, always challenges itself to deliver innovation to its customers. KIA challenges its design by not only creating shapes, lines and surfaces but also sharing unexpected and pleasant experiences with its customers. It never stops challenging its technology: its world-renowned Theta engine is recognized and used by Mitsubishi and Chrysler. It also challenges itself, by creating sustainable mobility and inventing eco-friendly automobile models. KIA creates fun, excitement and surprise in our lives, for the better.

Creative Challenge

Inspired by KIA, show us how a vibrant challenging spirit makes our lives more fun, dynamic, and exciting.

Your creation should show us a fun, dynamic and exciting story about how a challenging spirit can surprise people for the better. Make it engaging, exciting, energetic and full of KIA’s spirit: “Vibrant”.

Tips from eYeka:

You can draw inspiration from animations, movies, fictions, TV dramas that tells stories about having fun, attitude, challenging conventions or daring to do something a bit different to create more fun and excitement for all. For example: A street artist is struggling to make a giant graffiti on the street and he challenges himself to cover the larger area, while his spirit affects the people around, and more and more street artists gather around, even people passes by also chip in to help him to finish this massive, vibrant and spectacular painting in the city. Or it can be about a young guy who is afraid of height challenges himself to join a rollercoaster ride with his girlfriend and propose to her on it and make the other riders cheer and applause for him. . Or a young boy wants to deliver a message to his mother, he passes the message to a passer-by, and it creates a city race involving cars, bicycles and skateboards, and finally the mother gets the message and it's a birthday card made by the boy. Dramatize the story and make it truly dynamic and exciting, in a good way.
