We were delighted to be appointed by the National Lottery to produce the National Lottery Week exhibition in the Houses of Parliament towards the end of last year.
The aim was to highlight the work and funds provided by the National Lottery for small, medium and large projects across the country and to encourage others to apply for National Lottery Funding in their area.
Once the tender landed on our desks, we called the team together and pitched our ideas settling on the concept of an interactive quiz machine to accompany the exhibition itself… (Of course, there were some competitive team members eager to try this out!)
Working closely with the National Lottery and their partners, we designed and created the main exhibition accompanied by individual pods for Sport England, UK Sport, Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and the British Film Institute.
And onto the quiz itself, targeted at visiting MPs and Peers in the HoP and starting with the question ‘What has the National Lottery ever done for you? We set a timer along with questions on National Lottery funding in their chosen area. Followed with a ‘pick your subject’ section, players could choose between Film, Art, Heritage, Sport and Community and then added to a leaderboard! (Suffice to say, we got a tad competitive in the Glasgows office whilst testing it out…)
#NatLotteryWeek… we created and monitored the hashtag during Lottery week, which on one evening trended in the UK. A great achievement! We also provided pre-determined tweets for the National Lottery and its partners to post during the exhibition along with providing ‘live’ images throughout.
