Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Congratulations to Future First Studio‘s Daniel Moran, Dinesh Boaz, Valentina Elegante and Danny Potts who were this week announced by OUTFRONT Media Inc. (NYSE:OUT) as the winners of the 2020 OUTFRAME competition.

The winning submission ‘Selfless Love’ includes an aerial shot of Madison Square Park, in the heart of New York City, with the words “out of love” superimposed. In the artists’ own words, “Selfless love is an action – a choice to put someone or something before your own needs. Our work shows just that – individuals coming together and protesting, for what they believe in.”

OUTFRAME was created to celebrate the artists of adland and showcase their non-commercial art while building excitement for designing for out of home. Professional artists, freelancers, and other passionate individuals across the country participated in this year’s competition and submitted a creation based on their interpretation of the theme ‘out of love.’ 

The ‘Selfless Love’ artwork will be displayed on digital billboards across the country beginning today. OUTFRONT is also donating a month of media support for a charity of the Future First Studio’s choosing. 

Peter Tunney, OUTFRAME’s lead judge on the winning artwork said “I love the use of their environment to capture the overall theme and execution,” said The image is well made and relates to the statement. The fluidity of life is directly represented by not only the swirling colors on the side but also the people intermixing and mingling on/in the word ‘LOVE’.
