How Does It Work?
Zooppa partners with companies to launch user-generated advertising competitions. Each company provides a creative brief outlining the objectives of the advertising campaign. Zooppa members are then invited to create ads that are tailored to the company's needs in competition for cash prizes. These ads can take many forms including video, print, banners, concepts and radio. Grand prize winners are selected exclusively by the brands, and additional awards are given to creators as determined by vote of the Zooppa community and selection by the Zooppa staff.
