Creators Selected On
March 1, 2022
Note from Nationwide:

'This is our first campaign with Talenthouse and we were truly blown away by the submissions we received. It was difficult to shortlist our favourites as the standard was so high, but we’re really pleased with the results and wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who submitted work!'

Nationwide Building Society believe everyone deserves a place fit to call home, and improving communities is at the heart of what they do. They're launching their Instagram channel and would like to showcase multimedia artwork that celebrates and explores the theme of ‘home’, created by the most talented artists in the UK - that's you!

The brief: Create bold and uplifting mixed media artwork (digital illustrations, gifs, or animations) inspired by Nationwide's values of 'home'. The work will be used on their new Instagram channel.

15 pieces of work will be chosen by Nationwide as Selected Creators, and receive £500 each. This opportunity is only open to residents of the United Kingdom.

Things to Consider
  • Create multimedia artwork that celebrates and explores the theme of ‘home’ for Nationwide's Instagram channel
  • Nationwide would like you to capture what ‘home’ means to you e.g.
    • Saving for a home to call your own?
    • How does home make you feel?
    • What’s your idea of home?
  • Your submission can either be a:
    • Static digital illustration (1:1 ratio, 1200x1200px, JPEG or PNG, RGB)
    • GIF (1:1 ratio, 2000px x 2000px, 3 secs)
    • Animation (1:1 ratio, 1080x1080px, MP4 or .MOV, RGB, Max 10 secs)
  • Your work should appeal to young adults and young families
  • Keep in mind your submissions should be suitable for Nationwide Building Society social media channels, therefore, making them really stand out and be shareable on social platforms
  • Please only use Nationwide's colour palette when creating your work

  • You don't need to include the Nationwide logo, in your work, however, if you wish to include the logo you can
  • If you wish you can use text in your work, but please only use British English. You can use Nationwide's font (please do not use these fonts anywhere else as they are owned by Nationwide) or originally create your own.
  • You can include illustrated people in your submission, but please ensure they are not real
  • Reference imagery should only be used for inspiration, and not used directly in your work
  • Don't include references to any real people, dangerous situations, other brands, show/imply alcohol or drunkenness, nudity, promoting Nationwide's products or services in any way or anything offensive
  • Please include a 70-word (max written description in English) detailing the inspiration behind the artwork and what home means to you via the 'Description' field in your submission
  • Please don't share your submitted work online, social media or in your portfolio
