The Brief
CATRICE cosmetics is well known for a wide range of high-quality beauty products available in more than 50 countries worldwide.

CATRICE invites artists from around the world to create unique GIFs, animations and short videos (10-15 seconds) to drive awareness throughout the brand's social media channels.

Product collages and textures are the main brand elements when it comes to communication. Artists are required to include these brand elements in their work (provided assets to be used), but are encouraged to create new ways of using them, bringing to life the large choice of colours, trendy and classic shades and luxurious textures of CATRICE products.

Artists should also check out CATRICE's website and Instagram page for further inspiration.

Five Selected Artists, will have their work showcased across CATRICE's social media channels and will receive €2,500 (1st Selected Artist), €1,000 (2nd Selected Artist) or €500 each (3rd - 5th Selected Artist).
