About this Challenge

This debate has been going on for too long—let’s get to the bottom of it: Name the most iconic duo. Whether you think the title belongs to Spongebob and Patrick, Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen, or pineapple and pizza, we want you to make a case for the duo that you think deserves the ultimate iconic duo title. Enter this week's Challenge with the pair of your choosing and state your case for why they were meant to be.

    How Challenges Are Judged

    How Challenges Are Judged

    There’s no one right way to tell a story. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to see what yours looks like. Challenges are meant to inspire this creativity, and we want to see you tell a story that’s unique and authentic to you—but there are just a few things we look for across the board to be sure we’re judging every entry consistently and fairly.
