Brief

“THE DIFFERENCE SHE MAKES”

BRAND BACKGROUND

Created in 1986, Nespresso pioneered the portioned coffee segment and has been continuously innovating to deliver the highest quality coffee experiences to consumers worldwide. From the very beginning, the Nespresso concept has revolutionised the way people enjoy their coffee and has shaped our global coffee culture. But none of this would be possible without extraordinary talent.

Nespresso seeks out people who think differently, who are prepared to go further, push boundaries and demonstrate creativity in what they do in order to make a positive difference in the world.

All of our sponsorship activities focus on talent – being either emerging or established talents. Talents that inspire, educate, mentor & engage. Nespresso is proud to support film events, with a focus on young talent – particularly in the area of innovation in film. Nespresso is excited to continue Nespresso Talents in 2018 and see a bright future ahead in the years to come.

CALL TO ACTION

This year, we want you to share the stories of women who make a difference. Join us in casting a light on their achievements, the small ordinary ones and the big extraordinary ones. We’re after inspiring stories, made by women and men, which celebrate the strength, the talent and the innovation of the women who spark change.

“THE DIFFERENCE SHE MAKES”

This is for the women who make a difference. The women whose achievements, no matter how big or small, have made the world a better place. This is a celebration of the women who improve the communities and welfare of those around them. Women who, in their own unique way, create something important, something better. Women who spark change instantly and women who create transformation over a lifetime.

This contest highlights the stories of all women, the ordinary, the extraordinary and the billions that are both. Tell their stories. Join us in recognising their achievements, their talents and their vision. Shine a light on the changes they've made, however big or small.

Your story can take place in your home, in your neighbourhood, or in your classroom. It can feature your friends, family, or complete strangers. It can be a documentary, or a fictional world of your own creation. It can be animated or filmed.
