So turn on your creative minds, unlock your creativity, because all you need is an idea!




Apart from being awarded the winner of this years DCC Students, live at an event in Stockholm, you are also competing for a grand total of 1 000 000 SEK, in mediavalue to be used towards producing your idea for the Swedish Olympic Committee to be published within Oceans Digital Out Of Home network.

The Award show will take place on the 8th of November at SPACE Arena and deadline for entry is the 12th of October at 11.59 pm.


In 2010, Ocean Outdoor UK organized the first Digital Creative Competition to encourage and accelerate new opportunities in screen advertising.

Thirteen editions later, the technology has transformed outdoor advertising from static to subtle motion, full motion, interactive, streaming, augmented reality and 3D simulations. Ocean continuously invests in new innovative opportunities and products liked ARDOOH, AI Photo Booth and DeepScreen ALIVE® to enable brands to have better contact with their target groups. With the right support technology and insights, the possibilities for brands, agencies and the general public are endless.


Develop your concept based on the above summary. Keep it relevant to the brand, purpose and medium.

In addition to your pictures, we also want a short explanation of your idea in a maximum of 500 words. In this we want to read how you see your idea live, on which screens, how it fits with the brand, who you want to reach with it, etc.


To keep the participation process as simple as possible, we ask you to make a number (max. 5) visualizations of your concept. We have a good dose of templates and other assets for you that you can use for visualization. The clearer the better, but remember that we do not need “final artwork” yet.

To make it even easier, you can also draw your idea on paper or sticky notes. Take pictures of it and send it in.


Submit your idea using our Entry form.

When we have received your work in good order, you will receive a confirmation via e-mail and you will participate in the competition.

Make sure you have read the terms and conditions. By submitting your work, you accept the terms.


Entries will be judged by a jury of 12 senior advertising, PR and Out Of Home experts.

1 st Prize is a sum of 1 000 000 SEK that is fully usable on any of the digital screens within Ocean Outdoor Sweden’s network packages, including DeepScreen™ *

*The cost of the DeepScreen™ license will be deducted from the total value.



We are looking for creative concepts that take full advantage of the opportunities and push the boundaries within Digital Out Of Home.

We are open to all ideas and want to ensure that participation is easy and accessible to all.

Whether your idea has been developed in / on a post-it note, After Effects or Photoshop, it doesn’t matter. Everything is allowed as long as the idea is ready and it meets a number of selection criterias. For example, the idea must be original, and it must not yet have run on another media platform. In addition, all ideas must follow the rules of the Swedish Advertising Code.

The evolution of the medium facilitates use of both full motion imagery and integrated technology, to deliver emotionally engaging campaigns.

It has also taken a fundamental leap forward in its fame, its power and its potential for brands. From being an effective OOH communication platform providing huge success for brands, it is now a platform that delivers this as well as extensive amplification across social media, meaning the point of influence for brand messaging is not just people in front of the screen, but extends to global eyeballs.


If you struggle to visualize your idea, no problem.

We have both a Campaign Preview Tool where an idea can be tested and various templates where ideas can come to life. As stated, it is also possible to make a sketch on paper.

Do you need some inspiration to explore DOOH’s possibilities? Plan a brainstorm with one of our account managers or someone from our content team. In the end, Ocean helps visualize the ideas the jury has chosen as a challenger.





If you have any questions or need more information, please contact us and we will be happy to help you!

It is possible to plan a brainstorm or a meeting to explore the possibilities together with our team members.
