The competition asks entrants to try and create their own slogans or phrases using over 9,500 available IATA codes, as seen in the campaign which we previously featured, in an effort to win a £2,000 Expedia holiday. Entries are made through an app on their page, where you can also view entries by others. The competition will run for four weeks, with a winner chosen at random.
The original campaign was the idea of copywriter Jon Morgan and art director Mike Watson at Ogilvy & Mather.
It is a clever way to build on what must have been a successful campaign for the company and, in turn, will increase their visibility on Facebook as people need to 'like' their page before being able to enter.

YAP is an annual competition that supports and promotes young and emerging architects in collaboration with MAXXI Architettura, MoMA/MoMA PS1 of New York, Constructo of Santiago and, for the first time, Istanbul Modern, Turkey.
The winning design, called "He" is intended to attract and impress viewers, with its massive scale and innovative ideas.
The project will see the MAXXI facade transformed with a giant yellow prism-shaped balloon, which will provide shelter from the sun during the daytime and light the area in the evening throughout the summer.
As well as providing shade "He" will also drip water, creating a refreshing curtain for the public trying to escape the heat, whilst in the evening it will drench the area with a warm yellow glow as it rises up to the height of the museum, acting as a lantern in the sky.
Being installed on the 20th June 2013 for the duration of the summer, "He" will then be deflated, with it's Helium being collected and used for scientific and medical research, whilst the balloon itself will be recycled.

To celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of AWN Pugin, a master in the use of colour, pattern and ornament and who was an ardent campaigner for the Gothic style, CAMAC Design partnered with the Fashion & Textile Museum to organise a wallpaper design competition.
Best known for his interior designs of the Palace of Westminster, Pugin was one of the first to promote the idea of 'honesty' and 'propriety' in ornament and design, enlisting ornament as a moral influence in society.
CAMAC Design has partnered with the Fashion & Textile Museum in London's Bermondsey Village, which was founded by iconic British designer Zandra Rhodes. The museum showcases a selection of designs from entries to the 4th Annual Student Wallpaper Design Competition during its current exhibition Pop! Design, Culture, Fashion.
A second display of students' work is also on show at Ramsgate Library in Kent until 20th August. Ramsgate is where Pugin designed and built The Grange, his family home, and also nearby St Augustine's church.
The full exhibition will be held in London from 14th - 20th September, forming part of the 10th London Design Festival. Set up to build links between new designers entering the creative industries and the professionals already in it, CAMAC Design is a new company founded by Caroline McNamara, an experienced event and exhibition organiser, and Vice Chair of TEXERE, Textile Education and Research in Europe.

The Rencontres d’Arles festival has announced the shortlist for the fourth Prix Pictet with the subject of Power. There are 12 shortlisted photographers from ten countries that present a wide range of unique perspectives.
These vary from the veteran lenses of Joel Sternfeld, whose images capture “moments of horror” on the faces of attendees to the 11 United Nations Conference on Climate Change as they hear about ecological collapse, to Robert Adams – the oldest nominee – whose documentations of deforestation in the American Northwest are as terrible as they are moving.
See more of these fantastic images here.

LOFT requires the design of a vertical farm with residential use. As advanced as it sounds, the benefits of such a structure range from the continuous supply of agricultural products to the reduction of cultivated land, generating its own energy and contributing to the ecosystem's balance. The new tower would be inserted in the City's skyline, an extremely strategic site for public transportation and a strong demand for housing. The competition represents a chance to build a real vertical city, which may well include a plaza, shopping areas, and restaurants. Early registration begins in May 2011 and the winners will be announced in September, after the summer.
