DDB Oslo is of the belief that great ideas can be pitched in 10 seconds or less, which is why they have launched a contest that asks students to submit their entry on Snapchat. Instead of a lengthy list of achievements, “The Snapchat Pitch” challenges entrants to condense their idea into something much more punchy – which could result in a dream job.

The process is straightforward: Create a 10 second pitch in the style you think will work best. Connect with DDB_OSLO on Snapchat. Submit your idea and hope for the best! The creatives at DDB have pledged to watch every single pitch, and if you happen to impress them, they’ll even fly you out to Oslo for an interview.

Winners of the contest will be announced on April 3rd, which leaves plenty of time to come up with the perfect idea.
