UO and Squarespace Want You
One winner will be awarded $20,000 to help launch his or her business.
Squarespace and Urban Outfitters are pleased to announce that they will be giving $20,000 in start-up funds to one independent designer or entrepreneur through the UO & Squarespace Dreamers + Doers Start-Up Contest. The contest will support an emerging artist, designer or tech innovator looking to turn their dream into a reality. «We’re excited for the opportunity to collaborate with Squarespace on this initiative and support young, rule-breaking, creative entrepreneurs — their self-starting mentality is the cornerstone of the Dreamers + Doers concept and of the Urban Outfitters brand,» said Rachel Albright, Urban Outfitters Director of Content + Curation.
The Dreamers + Doers contest asks contestants to create a Squarespace Cover Page for their business and/or portfolio and include a sample of their work. One winner will be selected from a panel of Squarespace and Urban Outfitters judges and will be awarded $20,000 to help launch his or her business, an exclusive feature and coverage on the Urban Outfitters’ website, a two-year subscription to Squarespace, and a mentorship session with a Squarespace pro. The winner will also receive a round-trip ticket to New York City and the opportunity to participate in an Innovation Panel at the 2015 Northside Festival.
The contest is open to all U.S. residents ages 18 and up and will run for two weeks from April 6 to April 20. One winner will be announced on May 4. Individuals can enter their site, product, or service, at dreamersanddoers.urbanoutfitters.com.
