Yes, it’s back: E4 and Creative Review invite you once again to leave our flabber completely gasted with your amazing talent. Make a sting for E4 and you could get your work on air as well as win £2,500

It’s launched careers, it’s changed lives and it’s made us wonder just what on earth goes through some people’s heads. Yes, E STINGS is back and, with your help, we can make it bigger and better than ever.

As ever, the competition works likes this: we want you to take the E4 logo and create an original brand sting that can be played out on E4 itself. It can be live action, it can be animated, it can be in 2D, 3D or 4D. It can be hi-fi, lo-fi, big-budget or no-budget. All you have to do is download the E4 logo and a selection of sound files from e4.com/estings and get going. 

Our esteemed panel of judges from E4 and Creative Review will choose their top 25 E STINGS from this year’s entries, all of which will be aired on E4. In addition, a selection of our favourites will be shown on the CR website and on our forthcoming iPad app.

We will then choose an overall winner who receives a prize of £2,500 in cool, hard cash. Plus we have a runner-up prize of £500. The prizes will be announced at a party to which all the shortlist will be invited.

If that sounds good, download the stuff you need and get cracking.

Deadline: July 1. Enter online at e4.com/estings
