Red Bull's Flug Tag is back on the 7th June 2008, and they have kindly given E4 an offcial entry birth. The idea is to make your own flying machine, and well basically fly into the seprentine.

 Now E4 want their own fans to represent them at the Flugtag. One lucky team consisting of four fans will be E4's offcial team at the big day. They will design, build and pilot the craft 

All you have to do is get creative with your flying machine, make sure it fits the E4 brand and can fly a bit!

 As well as representing E4, you will be in with the chance of winning some cracking prizes...

1st Prize: Flying Lessons or some trips in aerobatic planes, or just take the money and run, to the tune of £5,000

2nd Prize: A day to remember in an  aircraft of your choice, or just take £2,000 

3rd Prize: Tandem parchute from 15,000 feet, or £1,000

black-on-blue-hand_1This in from Emma Carter about the latest project from our pals at Good Pilot, Chris Aldhous and Pete Hodgson, who we previously worked with on the HyPe Gallery, and who ditched the big corporate ad world soon after to focus on projects they believed in, including this provocatively-titled youth campaign for Action Aid.

Bollocks To Poverty, the youth arm of international charity Action Aid, are looking to recruit a 'Tour Ambassador'. It's a once of a lifetime opportunity for any music lovers to be the official "Bollocks To Poverty' representative at Reading and Freeze Festivals - hanging out backstage and interviewing top bands.

In a novel recruitment strategy, there will be no interview, assesment or tests but candidates simply have to put on a Bollocks To Poverty themed event (anything from a private screening to a gig to a bake off), and upload images, video and copy about it to the offical Bollocks To Poverty site. All the events will be judged by a celebrity judging panel which includes Watford punks, Gallows, and the winner gets the job.

More information is on the Bollocks To Poverty official site here.

There is exciting news on the cards for all Skins fans out there. Series II is coming to E4 in February 2008 and E4 have just announced a very special competition for fans to get busy with...The Skins II Creative Challenge.

In the build up to series 1, fans were set some challenges on E4.com and they were overwhelmed by the response -mainly because of all the other weird, wacky and wonderful Skins stuff fans created which had nothing to do with the 4 challenges! From fansites to animations to comic books - it was great.
