Video contests that use online voting to determine the winner always suck. A lot of contestants flat-out cheat which means the best videos rarely win. But the folks at Friskies have succeeded in making the voting phase of their cat-themed video contest suck a whole lot less. The sponsor is donating one can of cat food for every vote that is cast! Here’s how it works:
With your support, The Friskies 2014 will generate a donation of thousands of cans of Friskies® to 10 partner animal-rescue organizations around the country.
The best thing about it? It couldn’t be easier! Here are the details: Every time you vote for a video, we donate 1 can of Friskies®, up to 250,000 cans.
It really is THAT simple. With your participation in The Friskies 2014 we are hoping to provide a lot of food for a lot of hungry cats out there! So sit back and relax, watch some videos… then when the time comes get to voting!
I think that’s totally brilliant. Yeah sure, a lot of contestants will try and cheat but the sponsor has given “the public” a great incentive to vote for their favorite entry. So the real, un-biased votes should negate any cheating that happens. And best of all, lots of hungry little kitties will get some tasty num-nums! So do something good for our feline friends and go vote for your favorite Friskies finalist.
Oh wait, scratch that; it looks like you can vote for EVERY video in the contest! You don’t even need to register before you vote. There are 12 finalists so if you go vote for all of them you’ll essentially be donating a dozen cans of cat food in about 6 seconds. That’s awesome. Head here to vote right MEOW (heh): : https://www.thefriskies.com
