DreamUp Asks: How Does Your Day Change In Space?

Announcing our first media contest with prizes from BioWare’s Mass Effect™ Andromeda

Our everyday life on Earth is not so simple off the planet’s surface. Want to take a shower while orbiting Earth? Your water is a floating sphere. Want to send your friend a text from Mars? No matter how good your cell signal is, it’s not getting there any faster than three minutes. Living in space requires more than rockets and spacesuits; even the most basic tasks require additional thought and that’s where you come in.

DreamUp is excited to host our first multimedia DreamUp Asks contest! We want you to reimagine your own everyday activities as if you were in space. It is likely that even the smallest, most mundane task could be radically different on a space station in orbit, on an outpost on a moon or distant planet, or in a spacecraft speeding away from the comfort and conveniences of Earth. Ultimately, the familiarity of these seemingly trivial routines and tasks can make a huge impact on our well-being when in such a distant and isolated environment.

We are looking for essays, videos (files or YouTube), works of art, or whatever other type of expression you prefer to describe a normal activity for you in space and how we can try to adapt.

We will feature top entries on our blog and social media outlets where your response could inspire others to rethink how they could help move humanity toward living in space. In addition, DreamUp is excited to offer assorted prizes generously donated by our friends at BioWare who are also celebrating space exploration with the launch of their new game, Mass Effect™ Andromeda. You could win any of the following:

PC copy of Mass Effect: Andromeda (10 available)
Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda Book (4 available)
Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda Limited Edition Book (1 available)
Mass Effect: Andromeda Collector’s Edition Diecast NOMAD ND1 – (game not included, 2 available)

Deadline: May 31 by 11:59 pm EDT

Please address all questions and submissions to brittany@dreamup.org. This contest is open to all entrants ages 18 and older.
