Canmade Pride Challenge

Submitted to What's New

Rust-Oleum is proud to invite you, our Creators, to enter your work for a chance to be featured in our upcoming "Canmade Pride" ad campaign. Can What? Can Made. We know that making and DIY is more than just about the finished product. It's about the experience and the pride you feel when you've made something beautiful yourself. Since we’re a company with DIY in our DNA, our new campaign will show real people making and showing off their own projects and we'd love to feature some of our favorite people (you guys) and your work.
Intrigued? Here's how this is going to work. Everyone is invited to create and submit a video showing them hard at work on a painting project. You don't need any special equipment - your smartphone will do. We aren't looking for perfect projects and techniques, rather we want to see the experience, the process and the emotions you feel when hard at work. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Your project must show you using a Rust-Oleum paint product (spray paint or brush on)
  • You can paint anything/anywhere you like but outdoors is probably best for lighting
  • Submit as many times as you like
  • You can show off new or previously completed projects
  • Video clips should be less than 2 minutes in length

Participants in this Challenge will be eligible for up to $1000 in prizes including Rust-Oleum products and Gift Cards to the Home Depot, Menards or Lowe’s – and of course the opportunity to have your video included in our Canmade Pride ad campaign and showcased across other Rust-Oleum social media channels.
You can submit your videos in our Canmade Pride Challenge right away. Make sure to read the whole challenge brief for some more guidelines to help you create your video. Start thinking about the projects you are most proud of that you want to showcase – we can’t wait to see your “Canmade Pride.”
