The Two Birds 2020 Sponsorship Programme

Become a 2020 Sponsored Skater!

It’s that time of year again where we invite applications for our annual sponsorship programme. 

The programme is open to all figure skaters regardless of age, gender, ability, discipline or location to apply for sponsorship and we hope to be able to showcase a broad cross section of our skating community during the year ahead. 

This year, for the first time ever, we’re also opening up applications to synchro teams which is very exciting!

The deadline for applications this year is Saturday 29th February at 6pm.

 

To learn more about the details of the program, including the different categories available… and some hints and tips on how to make your application stand out watch my introductory video. 

The application process is very easy – simply make a short (up to 3 mins) video introducing yourself and highlighting some of your skating. 

Think of it as a mini vlog as you’ll be making these regularly if you’re one of the chosen skaters for 2020. 

Our top tips for your video’s are to make them fun and creative, speak clearly and not too fast (avoid noisy backgrounds if possible) and to get someone to hold the phone/camera for you OR put it on a stand so that the video isn’t shaky.

We’re looking for skaters who have a story to tell or a journey to share as well as skaters who fit with our core brand values – inspiring, resilient, determined, confident. 

In return you will receive a platform to share your journey as well as around £350 worth of Two Birds London products throughout the year.  You’ll also have our support every step of the way, we’ll be cheering you on at competitions (in person or from afar), supporting you when things are tough and shouting your achievements from the rooftops.

If you think this is you, we’d love to hear from you.  Good luck!
