Ashley has just turned 22. She is graduating from college soon and has already started working. In life, she wants it all, and she has the hope and determination to get it. Education, career, social life… She makes great efforts and believes in every step she takes. When it comes to feminine hygiene products, she uses tampons and thin light pads, depending on where she is in her cycle, and what activity she is doing. She admits that tampons don’t always live up to her expectations, and that pads are just so easy to use.

Tampax, a leading brand of tampons, launched Tampax Pearl to provide women with what they expect from a tampon: no leaks, and a more comfortable experience.

Can you help Tampax bring to life how its product provides the best protection and comfort in a way that appeals to young women?

Creative Challenge

Create a powerful and impactful poster that shows why Tampax Pearl gives young women the best and most comfortable leak-free periods.

Do you know that the vagina is not round or cylindrical? In fact, it is wide and rectangular. The Tampax Pearl line of tampons has been designed to fit this unique shape. FormFit™, a technology involving an absorbent core that gently expands widthwise, helps close the gaps that can cause leaks when using classic cylindrical tampons. Also, a LeakGuard™ braid helps stop leaks before they happen, giving women ultimate protection, even on the heaviest days. Its smooth removal layer gives women amazing comfort even on the lightest days.

We’d like to talk to young adult women (18-25 years' old) like Ashley who want the best from life and dive into it to make the most of it! Tampax helps give women power over their periods so that they can live without limits all month long. Your idea needs to convince them that Tampax Pearl is designed to fit their unique shape – so they will have a comfortable leak-free period.

Use creative metaphors, analogies, associations, etc. instead of technical explanations to come up with a strong visual! Your idea needs to be smart, intuitive and make them think: “Tampax Pearl fits my body perfectly for comfortable leak-free periods!”

Tampon ads are often on a beach or in swimming pools. Although that is ok, it implies that tampons are only used for those special occasions. Help communicate that Tampax Pearl is designed to be used all throughout a woman’s period.


The examples are only provided to illustrate our expectations. Please do not use them in your submission or it will be rejected.

A good idea could be a visual of a woman playing baseball. She is wearing baseball gloves and they fit her perfectly. She is smiling with confidence and the tagline says: “The best protection you could get – Tampax Pearl”.  

A bad idea could be a visual of a girl lying in the middle of a flower. It doesn't fit with Tampax brand personality and it doesn’t show how Tampax empowers women with leak-free periods.
