Brief

Reasercher of Ideas

There is an incomplete book entitled “ROI: Researcher Of Ideas”.

During the first Golden ROI Contest, in the first chapter, “The Energy That Wasn’t There“, you told us how to find a form of renewable energy to save humanity. Now your task is to realise the second chapter.

We all know that only through imagination is it possible to realize the unimaginable.

So don’t put any limits on yourself, unleash your imagination, get involved and experience this great new adventure with us.

 

Chapter Two: Chronicles of a Tiny World

In Lewis Carroll‘s famous book, Alice states: “If the world has absolutely no sense, who’s stopping us from inventing one?“.

And that is exactly what we are asking you to do in this second contest.

Without having any conceptual limits, put your imagination into play and create your own little world.

Whether it is a city inside a freezer, a garden in a bottle, a village made out of mushrooms, an ecosystem on the shell of a tortoise or whatever you prefer, whether it is fantasy, sci-fi or why not, both, tell us your story through a Digital Illustration.

We look forward to engaging in this adventure with you!
