Kik users love to express themselves! Using stickers is a fun way to add visual flair to conversations with friends. We’re running a special contest to celebrate these friendships as part of International Friendship Day on August 7th.

Create a new sticker design and see your artwork become an exclusive sticker pack available to all Kik users. Our creative team will collaborate with the winner, turning the design into a pack of stickers. 

There will be 3 winners chosen, 1st prize will receive a MacBook Air + prize money, and the most shared design will also receive $250! 

Share your design with #KikStickerContest

Suggested Theme & Style Guidelines

We want to celebrate amazing friendships, whether they’re online or offline. As an artist, how do you share love with your friends and family? Submit your sketches, drawings, and doodles of a sticker that shows what friendship means to you. Make it as crazy and fun as you want! Stickers express emotions or reactions in ways that words just can’t.

Don’t limit yourself! Your sticker can be anything: from a human (like your best friend), to an animal (sloths anyone?). Heck, you can even draw a dinosaur or object (what says friendship more than pizza)!

Our panel of judges will select First, Second and Third prize winners with a special extra prize for the most shared design. We’ll assess the designs based on creativity, fit with the theme of ‘friendship’ and suitability to be turned into a pack of ~12 stickers.
