In our "always-on" world, it is getting increasingly difficult for families to spend quality time together. Kids are under increasing pressure, dealing with stress and expectations. In fact, children are becoming a bit of an endangered species as kids face adult challenges earlier and earlier. Moms recognize this shift, and want to make sure that they prepare their kids for the challenges and uncertainty of the world ahead. Creating strong family bonds is critically important to building a sense of safety, security and support as kids prepare for the future. But time is precious these days, and moms need easy, no-frill ways to get the family together for quality bonding time. What could be a better way to bring families back together than an ice cream treat? Breyers is an iconic American brand of ice creams and frozen desserts that has been delighting families for over 140 years.

Creative Challenge

Create a modern, joyful and engaging story where a mom manages to bring her family together for a spontaneous, playful and memorable moment, thanks to Breyers.

To tell your story, you can create a video or a series of at least 4 quality photographs.

Your entry should feel genuine, authentic, caring, warm, a little playful and lighthearted. Quality family time has never been more relevant so don't make your entry feel old-fashioned or nostalgic. We want to appeal to moms, children and families of today, not yesteryear.

Please keep the narrative in the positive space of what happens when families are together eating Breyers. While it is acceptable to display some tension, avoid placing too much emphasis on the problems that families face (such as too little time, distractions, etc.)


We are giving you examples to help you understand what we expect. Please do not copy these literally.

For example, you could imagine a family's day illustrated by the screens constantly in front of them, never actually seeing each other. The only time they lift their eyes and face the real world is for Breyers fun! Another idea would be portraits of a family together where each person represents a Breyers flavor, creating fun combinations when they are pictured together. You could tell the story from the point of view of the children for a fresh take on things.

Winning Criteria

The ideal entry would not be a clichéd moment (i.e. just having a video or pictures of happy families eating ice cream, with no particular story or concept). We are looking for original and creative moments that strike an emotional chord with moms because it shows a bond happening between family members through a stolen moment with Breyers.
