Next year is Carrefour's 20th anniversary in Turkey, where it is known as CarrefourSA. It has been a pioneer of the “let’s visit the hypermarket” concept as well as the first to host under one roof a huge selection of products from food to household goods to clothing, giant parking lots, multiple check-out lines, roller-skating store clerks , all combined with extensive choice and great deals that transformed household shopping into a joyful family experience. CarrefourSA also has supermarkets that carry the same experience wherever you are. Many memories were made in CarrefourSA through the years and many new ones are to be made at every visit.

CarrefourSA is known for its welcoming attitude, quality choice at great deals for the whole family and its reputation for fresh produce. Many employees have been working with the same passion from their first day for 20 years, making CarrefourSA much like a family itself. It is as dynamic and passionate as ever, with the vitality of a 20 year old combined with a trusted reputation. Since the choice, convenience and fun hypermarkets bring to families are universal, we think that regardless of where you are, you can use your creative mind to help CarrefourSA celebrate their 20th anniversary in Turkey!

Creative Challenge

How can a hypermarket be so large yet fit so well into families' lives? Celebrate 20 years of good memories and even greater memories to come in a 20th anniversary video or print that brings to life the bond between families, fresh choices and hypermarket pionneer CarrefourSA.

You could make a video, and/or a poster that can be used in the stores (double your chances of winning if you do a video and a poster).

In your entry, please create and add a 20th Anniversary logo (for example it can be a stand-alone anniversary icon or be an addition to the existing CarrefourSA logo like a ribbon, typography etc.) along with an anniversary tagline, and use the CarrefourSA logo.

Don't focus on Carrefour's French heritage. Although the company started in France, it is now a global retailer that appeals to everyone and most people see it as their local store.

Tips from eYeka: Remember the first time you have been to a hypermarket and how amazed you were by its size and the ability to buy everything you could think of, conveniently on display for you to choose from. Sometimes we take this for granted. Imagine how easy it is now for families who used to spend the whole day driving to multiple shops to get their essentials, and more. Now with the convenience, great choice and great shopping experience they can do all at once while having fun (and saving time for other things).

Some thought starters could be (do not just copy them, you will have better ideas on your own): a video shows a family 20 years ago who look amazed at the choice on offer on the aisle of a supermarket, today they look amazed and in 20 years we see them all grown-up but still amazed. Or another idea could be that Carrefour is actually part of the family, as a person, growing up over the last 20 years and the next...
