About Tucan Travel:

Operating small group tours since 1987, Tucan Travel are passionate about helping travellers experience the world in an exciting and authentic way. Our purpose is to provide adventures with passion, that open people's eyes to the diversity of people, cultures and habitats across the world.

Tucan Travel tours are for anyone who is open to the idea of adventure. Whether it is hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or spotting lions stalking the Savannah, our tours aim to provide an experience which will stay with you for life.


Over 60% of our travellers are solo passengers - and on the majority of the tours there is not a compulsory single supplement meaning you can share with another fellow traveller of the same gender. Travelling solo doesn’t have to be lonely! While many people travel as a couple or with friends, over half of Tucan Travellers travel solo as they know they will meet friendly, like minded people along the way.

That’s why we are hoping you can help us spread the word today!!

Regions visited: South America, Central America, Africa, Asia, Europe

One Minute Brief of the Day: Create posters to promote #PaperStraws with @IntrinsicPaper

Today we’ve got a great brief with the guys at Intrinsic Paper to promote the use of a product that is extremely important in protecting our environment. We are looking forward to seeing the amazing creativity that the OMBLES come up with for this and there is a great prize on offer to the winner.

Remember to tweet your entries to @OneMinuteBriefs & @IntrinsicPaper with the hashtag #PaperStraws

The brief…

Campaign to spread the word that the paper straws are a sustainable, eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic straws, which are due to be banned in the UK from April 2020.

About Intrinsic Paper Straws

Intrinsic are a UK manufacturer and supplier of high quality paper straws. Our journey into paper straws was very much influenced by the documentary ‘Blue Planet II’ which was broadcast in 2018. To see the damaging impact that plastic waste (especially plastic straws) is having on our oceans and wildlife is quite heart-breaking viewing. To help with the global initiative to reduce plastic pollution, Intrinsic has been setup to focus on developing plastic alternatives starting with paper straws.

We believe paper straws are a sustainable, eco-friendly alternative to plastic straws. The paper straws we provide are made from sustainably sourced papers which are biodegradable, and only contain inks and adhesives that are both food safe and environmentally friendly. Also, our straws have been designed to deliver outstanding durability during use, so consumers can enjoy that all important beverage without worrying about issues such as sogginess.

However, there is a perception with paper that it has a negative impact on the environment, but in truth it is a sustainable product. Paper is based on wood, a natural and renewable material. As trees grow they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. Furthermore, as a wood product, paper also continues to store carbon throughout its lifetime.

Screen Shot 2019-09-12 at 13.04.28.png

Prizes:

5 winners will receive:

A copy of Space: 1999 - Breakaway! This 3 CD box set audio drama stars Mark Bonnar (Line of Duty, Catastrophe, Guilt) as Commander John Koenig. The release date of 13 September 2019 has been chosen because it is 20 years to the day after the Moon was blown out of Earth’s orbit (according to the original series’ opening titles)! This feature-length first story is split over two CDs, with a further hour of behind-the-scenes interviews and extras on a bonus disc.

About Space: 1999

Space: 1999 was originally an international TV production, debuting in September 1975. It was lavish, it was expensive, it was thrilling, and it was packed with stunning effects and exotic alien worlds. It told the story of the inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha, forced to journey into the unknown when a freak nuclear accident blasts the Moon out of Earth’s orbit and into deep space.

Now the much-loved series is back. This brand-new audio drama combines re-imagined versions of classic episodes together with all-new scripts. Joining Mark Bonnar is Maria Teresa Creasey as Dr Helena Russell, with additional cast members Glen McCready (Commander Gorsky/Paul Morrow/Alan Carter), Clive Hayward (Professor Victor Bergman), Susan Hingley (Sandra Benes/Alpha Computer/Sian Springer), Timothy Bentinck (Commissioner Simmons), Amaka Okafor (Dashka Kano) and Jules de Jongh (Petra Nordstrom).


What we are looking for

Celebrate the launch of the new audio drama series, and the commemoration of "Breakaway Day" (the 13 September 1999 anniversary celebrated by Gerry Anderson fans around the globe), in a way which will convince new audiences to download and listen to this blockbuster sci-fi audio drama.

We are keen to see ideas illustrated for print, outdoor or even, experiential.

The sky's the limit! (But remember: the Moon has gone!)


Key facts

Space: 1999 is only available on CD or download from www.bigfinish.com - it is not listed on podcast, audiobook or streaming platforms.

Running time: 180 minutes.

Age: 8+.

Space: 1999 was a British and Italian science-fiction TV show which aired on ITV and ran from 1975-1977. It was the last production from prolific producers Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.

The original TV series starred Martin Landau and Barbara Bain.

This thrilling feature-length audio movie is an enhanced re-telling of the TV show’s very first episode. It follows the assignment of John Koenig (Mark Bonnar) to Moonbase Alpha, where Dr Helena Russell (Maria Teresa Creasey) is investigating the outbreak of a deadly illness among the crew, while Professor Victor Bergman (Clive Hayward) discovers that a signal from the distant planet of Meta could herald disaster for humanity.


About Big Finish

For more than 20 years, Big Finish has been producing high-quality, innovative and award-winning audio dramas. There are now literally hundreds of releases to choose from, with new titles added to our catalogue every month. The majority of Big Finish releases are based on TV series, including genre favourites like Doctor Who, Torchwood, Blake's 7, Survivors, Dark Shadows, The Prisoner, Adam Adamant Lives! and The Avengers.

Our stories feature familiar and much-loved characters in all-new audio adventures, and many of the actors who appeared in the original shows have returned to recreate their roles for us. The majority of our productions are either full-cast dramas or dramatic readings using just one or two voices, and feature dynamic sound design and original music.

One Minute Briefs of the Day: Create posters to encourage the world to sign #TrumpsEarthDay card.

Today we’ve got a fun brief with a serious message at the heart of it.

We’re looking to the OMBLES to make some noise in the way they know best, through brilliant creative ideas that communicate and encourage people to sign Trump’s EarthDay Card.

Trump new logo untiled.png

Remember to tweet your posters to @OneMinuteBriefs and @TrumpsEarthDay with the hashtag #TrumpsEarthDay Please give @TrumpsEarthDay a follow on Twitter too!

Don’t forget to sign the card and then include the sentence below in your tweeted entries.

Sign #TrumpsEarthDay card at TrumpsEarthDay.com

Prizes for the winner:

  • A tree planted in your honour as a symbol of your commitment to the planet.

  • £100 voucher with a sustainable shopping site

  • Listed as a creative partner on our website.

About the campaign:

On June 14th, Donald Trump’s own Birthday will be turned into a day of eco-action against his climate policies with a mass protest-switch to green energy. We’re asking for everyone to help him get the message by signing an ‘EarthDay’ card that we will be sending direct to the White House. Check out the film we made with GAS Music below, featuring Ronald Dump performing a parody of ‘Happy Birthday’ by Stevie Wonder. Please give the film and website a share to help spread this important message far and wide.

The Background

Donald Trump’s policies on climate change have dismayed people around the world as we all begin to understand the extent of the danger we face if we don’t act quickly to reduce carbon emissions. While much of the rest of the world has been making progress:

  • Trump has called climate change a hoax

  • He has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement

  • He cut funding for renewable energy by 72% last year

  • He has put great efforts to reviving what he calls “clean coal”

The Idea

The brainchild of green-business leader, Tara Button, she explains that “Trump is stealing the Earth’s future, so we’re going to steal his birthday and give it to the planet. On the 14th of June, we are calling on the world to take action into their own hands and pledge to switch to renewable energy.”

Button has brought together a coalition of green activists and legends of the creative industry to turn a day which should be all about Trump, to be all about what we can do to fight his agenda in a real and practical way.

The Website and Earthday Card

The public will be directed to TrumpsEarthday.Com where they get to sign Trump’s Earthday card to send him a message and at the same time pledge to switch to green energy. If someone already has green energy then they pledge to get a friend to switch. A giant card will then get delivered to the White House to make sure Trump gets the message

The website also has resources to help people switch. NB Trump’s Earthday is not affiliated with any green energy companies and receives no financial benefit from any green-energy choices the public make.

The Music Video

A parody of Stevie Wonder’s beloved “Happy Birthday” song has been rewritten for the occasion by Tara Button and performed by parady singer “Ronald Dump”. Produced by coalition partners, Bank of Creativity and Gas Music.

Why is this day about switching to green energy?

The team wanted to do more than march. They want to ignite something that directly undermines Trumps damaging policies and will have a lasting impact.

  1. Dirty energy use is the biggest cause of climate change, so a mass switch to green energy will have an extreme and lasting impact.

  2. People voting with their wallets is much more effective than petitions - it drives change faster.

  3. Many people who care about the environment haven’t switched yet.  

  4. It’s much quicker and easier to do than people imagine

  5. Trump can’t stop us from doing it

  6. It’s a practical way to undermine Trump’s dirty-energy doners.

One Minute Brief of the Day: Advertise @GasIsMusic #ThePowerofMusic

Today we’ve got a great brief with our friends at GAS Music who helped to create Father Critmas’ music video in his most recent #MerryCritmas campaign. We are also working together on another exciting new music video for an upcoming project. To thank them for all their amazing support, I thought that GAS Music would make an amazing subject for an OMB and I’m sure all the OMBLES will have a lot of fun with this one!

Prize: Agency or freelancer studio time or services to the value of £1000 at GAS Music.

Brief:

Every event in our lives (good, bad and the ugly) - from social gatherings, school, holidays and travel right through to purchasing decisions and lifestyles, has a soundtrack!

So, how do you advertise the power of sound, audio, music on the moving image with GAS Music.

Don't judge a book by the cover, but do judge a person/brand on their record collection / choice of music!

An example of how important music and sound is to film is the brilliant GAS parody of the Elton John John Lewis advert below.

About GAS Music:

We love music, we're efficient, flexible, cost effective - producing bespoke and production / library music for TV, film, advertising, gaming and B2B our musical arrangements covering full orchestral to sound design. With the added benefit of a record label we're also a functioning studio so we can mix and master (on-line, tv ) and set and certificate to broadcast levels (R128), Voice Overs, ADR, dubbing, foley - we can compose to edit and also edit picture which helps demos, supply chain and saves time and money.

One Minute Brief of the Day: Create Tribute Posters #InMemoryOfIsabella @LyttleFight

We are very sad to be running today’s brief but feel that, together, we can create a beautiful tribute to someone who has inspired many of us as we followed her story.

We received the sad news last week that Isabella Lyttle has passed away on Sunday 28th April. Having got to know Isabella and her family, we were of course very upset and we want to do something to celebrate what a fighter she was and how she has been so inspirational to us all.

That’s why we want the OMBLES to create positive tribute posters to Isabella. These could feature at an event in her memory in the future.

We’d like you to tweet your posters to @OneMinuteBriefs and @LyttleFight with the hashtag #InMemoryOfIsabella

We first heard of Isabella’s story when Louise Chorley got in touch for us to run a One Minute Brief to raise awareness and donations. With over £100k to raise it was going to be difficult but we did what we could. Together with the family, we developed a script for a film based on one of the ideas by @ZedTrafficker that at only 10 years old, Isabella shouldn’t know the ‘C’ word. A film was then made and edited by Trunk and sent out via the charity Facebook feed. Within hours it had 1 million views and hit 10 million views on Unilad, as well as featuring on The Hook, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail and BBC National News. We ran further One Minute Briefs campaigns and asked for people to send in their own videos to ‘the C-word’ and nominate others to do the same. This helped make the campaign go even more viral and has helped the family to raise more than £100,000 towards getting Isabella the life-saving treatment in America she needed.

Unfortunately, despite having the funds to do so, Isabella never became well enough to be able to receive the treatment as here health deteriorated. The family received the bad news that the cancer had spread and they were told to go and make some memories. They headed straight to Disneyland Paris for an amazing trip but upon their return Isabella’s health took a turn for the worse and she passed away peacefully on Sunday 28th April.

I was very sad to hear the news. Isabella was inspirational to myself and lots of our followers. When directing the film, I had to make her shout the word ‘Cancer’ over and over, which is difficult enough itself but her performance was unlike anything I have ever seen. She was battling to save her own life and I will never forget the moment of the final scene in the film which was so real and powerful. I am proud to have seen how the OMB community tried to help Isabella and she has touched all of our hearts.

About the game:

Film fans are going crazy over this movie quiz!

Movie fans...there's really no excuse not to get full marks on this quiz!

Caesars Entertainment has created a say-what-you see game in which players have to find and guess the names of 50 movies which all feature a casino in them!

So if you think you know your James Bond from your Rusty Ryan, you can have a go at playing here.

Don’t worry if you’re not into movies - even if you only dabble in the odd film here and there, you can still do well. All you have to do is say what you see and, odds are you may guess the film correctly!

There are also some great prizes up for grabs for those who complete the challenge!

One Minute Brief of the Day: Advertise 70-year old rap duo @PeteandBas

We’re very excited to collaborate on today’s brief with two guys we are huge fans of!! We’ve got some great prizes to be won too! Can’t wait to see what the OMBLES come up with for this!

Brief:

Advertise 70-year old rap duo @PeteandBas

Tweet your posters to @OneMinuteBriefs and @PeteandBas with the hashtag #DentsInAPeugeot

Prizes:

  • Signed Pete and Bas T-shirt

  • Signed #DentsInAPeugeot CD or free download.

  • Chance to be an extra in their next music video.

  • Free tickets to the next ‘live’ show.

  • Meet and Greet with Pete and Bas

About Pete and Bas:

70 year old rap artists Pete & Bas are two of the most elusive figures in music. Debuting their first single in January 2018, they have already amassed a cult underground following. Now only 5 songs down, the duo are selling out shows all across the UK and are rumoured to have collaborations with huge UK artists on the way. Pete & Bas are nothing like any other music act worldwide, a quick look at their instagram https://www.instagram.com/pete_and_bas/?hl=en will shed a bit of light on the two. They also had an interesting interview with Noisey in which they drove around delivering mysterious packages while vaguely answering questions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtEG5zyldRY&t=11s but still very little is known of the two. So we’re looking to the OMBLES to help tell the world about Pete and Bas in their typical style using their amazing instinctive ideas.

Having featured in GrimeReportTv's The Five Pound Munch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vkTxhOoAsg&t=347s, and being co-signed by artists such as Dave, Giggs, Octavian and more, the duo seem to be rolling into the UK music scene very quickly. Their latest music video is currently trending on youtube music and is being described as their best work yet with artists such as Mike skinner from the streets saying "It keeps getting better".

As for what we do know about the pair, Bas is 72 years old and Pete is 68. They have been rapping for about a year now and although the stories as to how they started are debated online, they have said in previous interviews that the two met in a corner shop as Bas was teaching piano. According to Pete he was called to the shop for a health inspection and ended up talking to Bas about music and this somehow lead to their new career. Check out their latest track #DentsInAPeugeot here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RauxLMFafGI

One Minute Brief of the Day: Advertise the benefits of #SocialMediaMarketing for Businesses and SMEs with @socialink_co

Today we’ve got a fun brief with our friends at Social INK. To coincide with the launch of their new website (https://www.socialink.co/) they would like the OMBLES to do what they do best, and advertise how businesses and SMEs can greatly benefit from social media marketing. There’s a great prize to be won too!

Prize: £100 Cash Prize for the Winner!!

Tweet your entries to @OneMinuteBriefs and @socialink_co and include the hashtags #SMM and #SocialMediaMarketing. Make sure you follow @socialink_co on Twitter and check out our Facebook page where we will be posting and sharing some of our favourite concepts.

Please include the Social INK logo and website in your designs.

Brief:

Social media is often an afterthought for businesses because they don’t fully understand its power and potential as a marketing tool. Most people are ‘on’ social media and ‘use’ social media in a personal capacity, and therefore see it as more of a pastime or something to flick through when bored. What they don’t realise is that a lot of the content they consume, like and share, is on their feed thanks to effective social media marketing.

We want you to help us spread the word about the benefits of social media marketing for businesses and SMEs. for platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook & LinkedIn.

Social media gives brands the power to target content, and particularly ads, to a very specific audience, allowing them to measure and track what works. And at a fraction of the cost of more traditional methods. Data is more immediate and useful in terms of ROI.

If you’d like some inspiration, Social INK’s CEO, Chris hosted a live video AMA with One Minute Briefs’ Nick, back in October, where they discussed creativity and social media - https://www.facebook.com/socialink.co/videos/286148748906240/

Today we’ve got a great brief with our friends at @YoungLifeWriter. They are launching their new project #YoungLifeWriters with an all-new Twitter feed. That’s why we have teamed up to spread the message to our talented creative audience and beyond. Please give them a follow too!!

Prize: £100 Cash Prize for the Winner!!

Tweet your posters to @OneMinuteBriefs, @YoungLifeWriter and @TeamHighSheriff with the hashtag #YoungLifeWriters

Please tag in people between 16-25 who would you think would like to feature/get involved in this great initiative. They can send their submissions to: entrieslifewriting@outlook.com

This is the perfect opportunity for young copywriters out there to have their work published for a great cause!!

About the Project:

Exciting opportunity for aspiring young authors!

The Haven Greenfield is launching the #YoungLifeWriters project and collaborating with Creative Locations Publishing based in Saddleworth and Sacred Stories Publishing based in USA to create a compilation book featuring the short stories and poetry of aspiring young life writers aged 16 to 25 from the Greater Manchester area and looking to expand this into other areas of the UK as the project expands.

Are you a young life writer with a story to tell?

Maybe you have something that you feel needs to be shared, discussed or could create positive change for your community? 

Could it inspire and unite people? Do you want to share your story of the challenges you have faced?

If your story is a reflection of a personal experience, we would love to hear from you. It can be in the form of a short story or poem.

Our vision for this project is to offer 16 to 25 year olds the opportunity to share their voices through writing. Sharing our stories is a powerful way to inspire and create positive change for ourselves and others. We hope to engage our audience of readers with messages and life experiences written from the hearts of our young people. 

We are now open for entries and the final closing date is midnight of 19th March 2019 

It is free to enter and all manuscripts will be read by a panel made up of representatives of The Haven Greenfield and Creative Locations Publishing and shortlisted before selections will be made and the authors offered the chance to feature in the compilation book to be published and marketed world-wide by Sacred Stories Publishing in paperback and e-book formats.

This project is being supported by the current High Sheriff of Greater Manchester, Dr Robina Shah and more information about her work can be found on the Team High Sheriff website.

Our belief:

We are doing this project because we feel that writing can be a powerful means of self-exploration which is often overlooked. It can be a way a young person can understand themselves, their lives and empower others to believe in themselves too.

Our aim is to really find out what young people have to say and for us to listen. The short stories and poems will be published in a book and promoted and distributed globally. Proceeds will go into a project of their choice. 

Send your submissions to: entrieslifewriting@outlook.com

Example poem: Written by Young Life Writer - Emma Sykes

I sit here in silence

With no thoughts in my head

Seeing a poem

Which only lays dead

Because of the fear,

The struggle, the pain,

To allow anyone

To even know my name.

And the persona I choose

Lies close to my heart

As a way to protect

The fire destined to start

The fire that burns

Every bridge in my soul Sealing the approval

Of my ultimate goal.

Freedom to ride

On the waves painted black

With choices so endless

You never look back

I see the elements

As they live within me

And the ‘Mother’ as she returns

And continues to be

My greatest teacher,

In times such as these

When life becomes

A little more than a breeze.

But to all my Mothers,

As we continue to grow

I ask for your guidance

In this world down below

To ignite the flames,

The passion, the power,

To rise within me,

The Great Purple Flower.
