Points & Prizes
All of our CreativesMX events are full-featured days designed to provide you with challenging activities, networking opportunities, skill advancement, engagement, fun and prizes. One way we accomplish this is by awarding points throughout the event to participants. Points can be earned by attending sessions, participating in discussions, activities or challenges, and showing enthusiasm. At today’s event, you’ll receive points for every session you attend. At the end of the day, prizes will be awarded based upon point totals. In addition to attending any of the 3 listed sessions, you can also earn extra points by participating in the challenges listed below.
Warren Street Social Media Challenge: 12:15pm – 3:00pm
Objective: Use your social media networks on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (any or all) to collect social media likes and earn points towards today’s prizes.
How: Visit Hudson’s beautiful Warren Street and post to your social media networks about your experience at CreativesMX TryOut Event. Make sure to hashtag #creativesmx so we can track your progress. We strongly encourage you to visit our Neighborhood Ambassador Mile Marker participating businesses, which can be found in your printed program, and show your support by tagging them in your posts.
Points are awarded as follows:
- Most posting across all networks
- Visits to participating Neighborhood Ambassador Mile Markers
- Hashtagging #creativesmx, tagging @creativesmx1, and tagging a Neighborhood Ambassador sponsor
- Additional points are awarded for the individuals who achieve the most interaction from their networks (likes/comments)
- Finding a local business that is creative in nature, and tagging them as well to let them know we are an exciting community of local creatives.
You’ll be on your own to roam around and promote yourself, local businesses, and CreativesMX. Be sure to get back to Space 428 by 3:30pm so you can attend the afternoon session.

Take our Persona Online Workshop
Starting today, we are beginning registration for an exciting, free online workshop. During this workshop, you participate at your own speed over the course of a few months. The purpose of the workshop is to help you learn how to use personas as a powerful tool to understand your target audience and show you how you can better communicate with them. People who have attended this workshop in person rave about how valuable it is in learning how to promote yourself to a wider audience, and we think you’ll agree.
What is a Persona?
A persona is a fictitious, specific and concrete representation of target users. Personas act as stand-ins for real users and help guide decision-making about functionality, design and ultimately, marketing. As a design tool, they are a powerful way to communicate behaviors, goals, wants, needs and frustrations.
How Does It Work?
Sign up today and in the next few weeks we will provide you with more specific details on the workshop. Don’t worry, if you change your mind later you can opt out of the workshop, but we think you’re going to like it. Plus, just signing up will earn you 5 points today. If you decide to complete the workshop, you’ll be in a position to earn even more prizes and opportunities.
