Topshop’s style challenges will include activities such as snap a photo of your favourite ‘back to college’ outfit at Topshop, or tell SCVNGR which item you think most represents the brands trends. Rewards include a 20% discount instore and entry into a competition to win a £500 shopping spree. New challenges and rewards will be launched on 6th October.

NEWGEN designers it supports via Topshop was one of the first brands to launch its own blog, and its popular Facebook and Twitter pages have the most followers of all its high street competitors. Recent campaigns have included the use of QR codes and photo sharing app Instagram, both helping to further enrich the customer’s instore experience bringing their on and off-line worlds closer together. Autumn 2011 will see the launch of a number of new and exciting initiatives including a new iPhone and iPad app, a shopable mobile website and the launch of Topshop Tumblr.

Mary Homer, Managing Director of Topshop, comments: “We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to engage our customers. Following the popularity of SCVNGR in the US we wanted to offer our student customers the ability to interact with our brand, on and off-line in a more fun and engaging way.”

Seth Priebatsch, CEO of SCVNGR, comments: “Topshop has established a fun, unique and popular brand identity over the years and SCVNGR’s game engine enables Topshop to convey this image through custom scripted challenges whilst inviting consumers to browse its collections. We are thrilled to be launching with such an iconic company as our first challenges and rewards retail brand campaign outside of North America.”
