Queensland Writers Centre
Thousands put pen to billboard
Queensland Writers Centre is asking everyone to put pen to billboard and share their story – their 8 word story to be precise – with the best eight-word stories going up on digital billboards.
#8wordstory launched Monday 16th October, with billboards across Brisbane asking commuters and passers-by: ‘What’s your 8 word story?’
Choosing 8 words as the length for submissions is significant. A billboard gives you a few seconds to read, register, and understand. And 8 words gives you just enough canvas to make an impact. It is the perfect number where storytelling and advertising meet. It’s amazing how much story you can create using just 8 carefully selected words.
In just two weeks the competition has already attracted over 3,500 entries. The submissions have come from all over Australia, including from two The New York Times bestselling authors, Margo Lanagan and Delilah S Dawson.
The campaign is running across THE goa GRID™, the extensive network of digital billboards across Brisbane, as part of the billboard and signage company’s annual Community Partnership Program.
