Chiquita announces ‘Fuel the fun’ competition winners
Fourteen fabulous designs have been chosen amongst the twenty winning entries of Chiquita’s fun-packed worldwide competition, which invited their consumers to produce creative artwork to be applied on its iconic Blue Sticker. The selected designs will appear on millions of Chiquita bananas across the world between February and March 2020.
The ‘Fuel the Fun’ promotion ran from the beginning of the school year in 2019, in USA, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Belgium and the Netherlands, with exciting prizes, such as iPads Pro and Apple pencils. During this promotion, consumers had the opportunity to create designs and upload them onto Chiquita’s ‘Fuel the Fun’ website. Chiquita received almost 500 entries!
The winners are:
- Regina R., Alexandria H. and Aviva M. from the United States
- Karolien S., Tim de L. and Jenny C. from the Netherlands
- Valérie G., Elodie D., Caroline C. from Belgium
- Valentina A., Mariangela R., Carlo Andrea S. from Italy
- Maria S., Charalambos D., Maria T. from Greece
- Mara G., Alexandra U. and Sonja M. from Germany
- Martina K. and Simone H. from Austria
Chiquita fuels the fun because its delicious bananas contain a wide range of essential vitamins and minerals, so they are a fantastic source of natural energy and the tastiest way to unleash the potential of every creative mind, whatever the age. A Chiquita banana provides an instant and sustained boost of energy thanks to its healthy natural sugars and soluble fiber. This wonder fruit is also packed with potassium, which research has found can help the learning process by increasing alertness. Tasty and fun – no wonder everybody and particularly kids love them! There’s no better treat to pack in a snack box for school.
The chosen designs will become an important part of the long and fascinating history of Chiquita’s world-renowned Blue Sticker, alongside globally-famous versions such as the company’s annual Pink Sticker campaign to support breast cancer awareness and research; the fitness stickers, and the limited edition Ricardo Cavolo stickers. The winning designs will also feature in Chiquita’s sales material and will be brought to life on Chiquita’s website.
You can collect all 14 stickers featuring the artwork designed by Chiquita’s talented consumers in stores across Europe and North America starting this February. Don’t forget to keep collecting till you have everyone!
