Desperados have challenged 3 teams of creative mavericks to take on challenges in their cities, judged by Desperados and the four industry mentors.

The creative teams from Bristol, London and Manchester have been set the tasks to bravely overcome perceived limitations and conventions and get their cities (and eventually the whole of the UK) to sit up and take notice.

During the extent of the competition each team will face multiple challenges to prove they’re the most able to complete these and take over their city!


Each team (London, Manchester & Bristol) was challenged by the mentors to make people aware of who they are ahead of the Desperados Red Party, taking place this Thursday 27th August, in each city.

As well as creating a name and giving themselves a visual ID, the teams most important challenge was to create a stunt their city had never seen before and get everyone talking!
