Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) March 28, 2009
Everyone wants to be chauffeured, stay at four-star hotels, and walk the red carpet at a prestigious awards show, but only a select few ever get to live the movie star lifestyle. For one weekend, Zip.ca will give Kristina Maguire the opportunity to do just that when she attends the 29th annual Genie Awards in Ottawa on April 4th.
As the winner of Zip.ca's Party Like a (Canadian) Movie Star contest, Kristina and her guest will receive round-trip airfare from Edmonton to Ottawa where they will enjoy two nights accommodation at a four-star hotel, chauffeur service to Genies events such as the Genie's cocktail party, the awards ceremony, and the Genies dinner & after party where they will rub elbows with the best and brightest in the Canadian film industry.
Zip.ca's Party Like a (Canadian) Movie Star contest ran from March 5th to the 19th. Kristina's name was drawn from over 3,600 eligible entries from across Canada to win a trip for two to Ottawa for the 29th Annual Genie Awards on April 4th.
As a proud sponsor of the Genie Awards, Zip.ca was host to the online streaming and postal distribution of nominated films during the voting process.
"This is our second year partnering with the Genie's, and with the awards being held in our own backyard, we wanted to share our excitement with our members. This is the first time we have done a contest like this and the response has been phenomenal, showing the excitement and support Canadians have towards the Genie awards, and the home grown film industry. We are very happy to be able to play a part in supporting and recognizing Canadian achievement in the entertainment industry and have plans to do more to encourage Canadian creativity in the coming months." - Zip.ca CEO Curt Millar
