Facebook 50K competition

24 Dec

Holy potatoes. Facebook tells us that there are 50,000 of you out there that like us. 50,000 that listen to our stories,...

Posted by Animal on Monday, 9 November 2015

That’s how it all began. Now we’ve reached the 50K milestone, and we're stoked. Super amped because Animal is not just about making great products. We design these products with a purpose: for you. To make sure that no matter what adventure you embark on, we can provide you with the warmth, the comfort and the style you need.

It's about us, as a community of British wanderers, action-sport lovers, weekend warriors, sticking together for the things we love and our freedom to partake. It's about sharing experiences, exchanging stories and inspiring one another with our words and our actions.

50,000 is a big number, but it's only just the beginning. There are millions of us out there who root for the same thing, and that's our love for the outdoors and pushing ourselves to the limit.



We ran a quick 'out-of-nowhere' competition in spring, giving away a GoPro camera and a flat peak Animal cap, and we challenged the winner to send us a little drawing to celebrate her victory. She came back with this: Walter, the victory penguin.

We loved it, so here's the deal:

We listened to your cries, sifted out the boring and decided that Joe Pearler’s suggestion of a “masterclass with Blake Samson for my kids” was a mighty fine prize to celebrate our recent milestone.

To make this fair for everyone, we’ll word it this way: “a day-long masterclass with an Animal team rider of your choice, for yourselves and your family.

And what do you need to do to win this you ask? We would like you to draw us a picture of fictional vigilante, Bartholomew Dawn; the surfing unicorn.

Points for creativity, fun and storytelling.

Now the ball is in your court, and we're looking forward to seeing your masterpieces. Bring it on.
