TikTok For Business launches SWAG U challenge

What is it?

TikTok For Business is on a mission to collaborate with future design leaders in KSA and UAE. We’re all about empowering our community and giving them the tools to express themselves and their out of this world ideas!

That’s where the TikTok For Business SWAG U challenge comes in; a competition for anyone in the KSA and the UAE to design our next batch of awesome SWAG. Entrants will be asked to submit 1 super inspirational and impactful theme and show 3 adaptations of this theme in the form of:

(a) a desktop item

(b) a wearable item

(c) a no-rules bonus item – up to their imagination!

1st, 2nd and 3rd place Winners will receive a trophy, while all qualifying participants will receive a digital certificate of participation. The winners will also receive a limited edition SWAG U Box, adapted from their ideas, which will be produced for TikTok For Business clients following in the weeks after the Live announcement.

How does your adtech look for 2022? No matter what stage your planning is at, our final Online Briefing of the year has you covered. Join us on November 29 for Adtech Playbook – A Roadmap to Superior Performance. Find out more here.


Judges include TikTok superstars Annie Arsane, Youssef Gadallah and Maha Moussa from the Global Business Solutions team based in Dubai.

We’re excited to create new and innovative brand experiences in a socially distanced world and teaching aspiring creators and enthusiasts to think like business strategists and not just artists because they are the future design leaders of the region. Everyone loves packages and with most people continuing to work remotely in some capacity or the other SWAG is a unique way to connect with partners and collaborators outside traditional offices and in-person meetings.
