By now, most of you guys are probably putting the finishing touches on your Crash the Super Bowl entries. But it’s never too early to start planning your next contest entry! So you might want to check out Zenni.com’s humongous new video contest before your creative juices dry up. The company is paying out $45,000 in prizes and if they really, really like your video, it might just wind up on TV. The rules say that videos must be exactly 28 seconds long but I talked to a rep from Zenni and longer videos are ok. In fact, they are also looking for viral-style videos that they can use online. But still, shorter is apparently better in this contest.
Here’s a quick synopsis from the contest page:
Twenty grand. When’s the last time you saw THAT much money? Yeah, a long time. Probably like never.
But if you wear Zenni glasses you might.
We need your brain, at least the creative part. And in return you may just win $20,000.
It’s easy. Smack us with a video, any length (but you score points if it’s short), that says something outrageous about you and your Zenni glasses.
Let your inner Fellini run wild. Surprise us with a zany Zenni story. Or create something touching, you know, with little kids or puppies (please, no cat videos). We’re looking for videos so good they might even go viral (saving us big bucks on an ad campaign).
This is a truly insane chance to make some serious scratch. We know, because our boss said “you guys in marketing are insane if you think I’ll do this.” But, after a couple of drinks…
Like I said, there’s some big money at stake here. The grand prize is $20,000 and first place is $10,000. Two second place winners will get $5,000 each and finally five third place winners will each receive $1,000. And here’s the best news of all: THERE’S NO VOTING IN THIS CONTEST! That’s right, none of the prize money will go to vote swappers or cheaters or Internet celebrities. If you wanna win some of Zenni’s cash all you gotta do is make a kick-ass video. The deadline for entries is December 22nd. So I suggest you go shoot a submission once Thanksgiving is over and out of the way. It will give you something to do while you’re waiting to hear if you made the Crash the Super Bowl finals! For more details, head here: http://zenniopticalvideocontest.com
