I missed that moment in which you have to think and break your head to come up with an good idea. eYeka gave me the opportunity to prove myself that I am a creative person. andre_dft

At my old job I never really felt appreciated. I had lot of ideas for the agency and for our clients, but some people didn’t take me too serious because I was also studying at the time. In school everything was perfect, but I really didn’t felt “creative” at the agency. When I graduated, my status didn’t change and I realized that some people will always see me as a intern, so I quit. Shortly after I started teaching advertising, mainly creative and strategic thinking. I loved it, but I still missed that moment in which you have to think and break your head to come up with an good idea. eYeka gave me the opportunity to prove myself that I am a creative person. I learned that no matter what everybody tells you, you got to follow your gut and just do what makes you happy. And so here I am, still thinking in some new ideas. Thank you eYeka ;)

eYeka gave me independence. After working at an advertising agency for 5 years, we lost a big client and they let half the company go. Here I was on my own and I decided to work for myself.

I started to seek to new clients and contests…Found eYeka and wow…life hasn't been the same ever since. With my prize money I have been able to sell my old car (1991!) and bought a newer car which is so much nicer. I was able to move from the southern tip of California all the way up to the north, 9 hours away, on funds from eYeka contests.

eYeka helped me move further in life. Literally, from a car, to a relocation, to a new house, all because eYeka was there presenting the best, the top clients, unbeatable prizes. I can't thank you enough eYeka for being there, you surpass the competition by a milestone! As a freelance designer I consider eYeka as my best client lol! :)

Don't even get me started about how much eYeka has made my brain explode in the creative category. I am continuously challenged. I'm always so excited to see which new contests are posted and check often. eYeka feels like an old friend.

eYeka just got me noticed that creativity is not a job, it's a passion.

I am a professional wedding photographer with passion to capture all of my clients’ timeless moments. Most of my files in my computer are all about wedding, suddenly it made me realize that my passion is to capture real moment in real life; but after being through so many weddings that passion was turned into my job. I didn't say that being a wedding photographer is a boring job, I am happy and I enjoy with it but I just realized that I was doing it lately as a job not a passion anymore.

When I got the notification as one of the winner in AIA Photo Competition where I was required to submit a photo that can give a story about a real moment in real life, eYeka has brought me back to the right track.

eYeka makes me once again realize that moment is everywhere and it depends on our creativity to share it with the world. Thank you eYeka!

Thanks to eYeka now I believe in my strengths and talent even more. It encourages me to participate in online contests and develop my skills.

Furthermore, I won one contest and it allowed me to pay for study abroad - to make my old dream come true! I have always been passionate about fashion design and my prize in Sunsilk TV Show was exactly enough to cover one yeah tuition fee in Europe! I am very happy and still cannot believe it!

I have also proudly added this award to my resume which always interests employers.

I want to thank eYeka support team - you are very nice! Thank you eYeka!

I am creative audiovisual, but I work as a security guard at night. We all believe that we are worthy of more. A better job, more money, more success … And when we do not have that, we curse our bad luck.

I never had the chance to show my ability. I've been trying to make what I like in my work for many years.

A year ago, when I took for granted that it would be impossible to make a great commercial for a prestigious brand, I was encouraged to participate in eYeka. Till today I have won 3 international awards staying in 1st place for brands such as Close-up.

That has changed my life in many ways. Especially in the perception of the challenges and overcoming problems. Nothing is impossible, fight with all possible disadvantages and do not give up. If you use all your strength to move forward, you arrive where you want. To this day, I am still competing, and I press on.

eYeka has changed my life in some ways. I’ve won prizes in some of the contests I decided to participate, and this gave me opportunities to buy some lights, lenses, etc…All these tools to make a better work.

eYeka also gave me opportunities to push my limits further when creating a video: when you have to make a video for high standing brands, who require high quality videos, you have to meet great persons, you have to find the best places to shoot, you have to ask professionals to shoot with you… you go further… you become better, with some difficulties sometimes, but that’s what makes you stronger. The most important thing is not the destination, but the journey.

I have a daughter. She’s 1 year old… She has been the reason I quit my job of Biologist for 6 months, to see her growing… No pay during these 6 months… But eYeka was there… I eventually had the chance to see my daughter growing in the best conditions… No price for that. I’m a fulfilled and happy father thanks to eYeka… No price for that.

Could I make videos my everyday job? I don't know. I'd like to... I've already made a TV commercial for the first National TV Channel in France named TF1, and when it has been showed on TV, I was one of the happiest men on this planet!! A friend called saying to me: Man!!! This is what we've made both together!!!! And we can see it on the big screen!!!! Wow!!! Watch your TV right now!!! My wife was proud of me… I saw it in her eyes. Magic moment. I need this. This is what makes me alive. This has become an evidence. I can't do without this now...

One thing that makes eYeka an important part of my life is the latest contest that I won (Living in the moment). I was planning my wedding with my fiancé and we were having a money issue. Our savings wasn’t enough to make it happen. We were just about to apply for a loan from a bank and suddenly when I checked my mail, there was an email from eYeka saying that I won the first prize!

And you know what? The amount of prize I won was the same as what we needed for our wedding! For us, it was more than just a prize. It was an answer to our prayers. Our wedding day happened thanks to eYeka.

I know that technically I was not the best coder. But in the end, the combination of my knowledge in both design and development enabled me to succeed in the contest.

When I learned about the results, I was very happy and relieved, because I really wanted to win that one. It is very gratifying and winning €5000 allowed me to take vacation and start my own agency Brother&Brother, which I launch with... my brother!

Thanks to eYeka, working with Shazam is not only an interesting experience, but it's a prestigious reference for my agency.

For many years, I struggled to choose a style which will reflect my personality. I tried lots and lots of styles, from creating films with live subjects, to motion graphics, to combinations of different art styles.

eYeka helped me furnish stop-motion paper animation style and at the same time I was able to execute my concepts easily because with paper I can create different scenarios of almost everything. The contests on eYeka make your brain produce more creative stuff than usual.

Ever since I stumbled over eYeka, a lot of changes came to me.

As a copywriter, I have always been quite good at inventing concepts and ideas, but in order to compete with all those excellent layouters at eYeka I have to constantly improve my own layout abilities - which I didn´t care for much until now. It is also at eYeka, and for the first time in my career, I have the opportunity to even think about product innovations and meaningful package design which also stretches my personal creative limits.

All together, the work for eYeka totally meets my personal preferences: - I may choose which client(s) to work on (if you have a problem with one for whatever reason, just don´t participate).
Also you have a certain control on your income possibilities. If you want to enhance your winning chances, simply think about additional ideas and submit them too. It all depends on your creativity and internal agency policy issues play no role whatsoever.
Just as it should be!

As exceptional is eYeka's perfect care for their creators - I never feel lost due to their guidance. Also eYeka is very open to improvement suggestions, which I admire. In total I would say this definitely is the agency concept of the future.

Glad to be part of it!
