It needs to be awesome
So what is an awesome idea? Something that makes everyone enthusiastic. Something that makes you spontaneously clap your hands when you hear it. It is an idea that, if shared with a random person on the streets, will make them smile.
It needs to be "Rotterdams"
It is for our city. It needs to speak to the people that live here. To big ones, or small ones. They need to be able to see it, or interact with it. Inside or out. It has to be the talk of the town or the street or the neighbourhoud or the square.
Realize it with the €1.000
Think big, but make the idea you want to pitch small.
