Vote for your favourite E STING and help someone win a £15,000 commission from TV channel E4. Here’s how it works…

E4 and Creative Review have been running E STINGS for the past four years. The competition asks entrants to create a six-to-ten-second sting for E4. In the past E STINGS has proved to be a great stepping stone toward a directing career – not only does the winner get a commission, but two runners-up each get £1500 worth of kit and all 25 finalists (a selection shown above) have their work shown on E4.

This year, the overall winner and two runners-up will be chosen by public vote via e4.com. All 25 shortlisted films are currently on air on E4 and are available to view online at the site. Please go to the E STINGS site to cast your vote.

In another innovation this year, E4 and Creative Review are putting on an exhibition of the best of this year’s E STINGS entrants at the Design Museum in London next month. The exhibition, which will run from 25 February to 2 March, will feature the 25 shortlisted idents entered into the 2007 E STINGS competition which ran in the spring of last year.

Below are a few more from the shortlist, but the winner is up to you. To cast your vote, please go to e4.com/estings

First up is the Radar Music Video awards, the festival promoting up-and-coming promos directors, now in its second year. Entrants were given a list of tracks to create videos for, from bands including The Good, The Bad and The Queen and Kylie, and with prizes including mentorships with production companies Black Dog, Draw and the Directors Bureau on offer, competition was tough.

BBC Three – Rebranded

BBC Three’s new logo, devised by Red Bee Media
To be completely honest, we’re rather sad here in CR towers at the thought of the imminent demise of the cone-shaped blobby creatures (devised by Aardman Animation for Lambie Nairn’s original BBC Three branding package, delivered almost exactly five years ago) that moved and grooved to the sound of Three Is The Magic Number…
