Part of the fun of the prompt challenge is the random nature of it. You send in a prompt, and you have no idea who is going to get that prompt, and even when you do know, you don’t know what they will make of it. Give a dozen creatives the same prompt, and you’ll get a dozen wildly different things back. We could have done that – a single prompt a week. But we didn’t. We made it into a bit of a game, a bit of accountability (you don’t want to let your challenger down), and a lot of fun.
