Myrtle Beach, S.C. (PRWEB) October 30, 2009
A contest to find the next musical jingle for Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C. was announced Saturday afternoon during the first day of the Holiday Harvest Festival at Broadway at the Beach. Broadway at the Beach organizers decided to hold the jingle contest so that everyone who has enjoyed Broadway at the Beach over the years can have a chance to be a part of the area's premier attraction. And, the community atmosphere surrounding Holiday Harvest was the perfect place to make that announcement.
The contest runs through November 22nd and is open to anyone interested in participating. It is being presented by QRockRadio.com, a live radio station broadcasting 24 hours daily from Broadway at the Beach. Jingle writers can submit their work by going to http://www.broadwayatthebeach.com where they will find a link to upload their mp3 file for consideration. Jingles will then be placed on the Web site where people can listen to them and vote on their favorite. The jingle that receives the most votes will be awarded the "people's choice award." The top 25 entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will narrow them down to 10 and then choose the grand prize winner. The grand prize winner of the jingle contest will have his/her jingle professionally produced and receive $1000 in prize money. The "people's choice" winner will win a $300 Broadway at the Beach gift card.
"Broadway at the Beach is the center of entertainment in this area, thanks to the tremendous community support we've received over the years," said Alicia Harper, marketing director for Burroughs & Chapin Company, Inc. which owns and operates Broadway at the Beach. "The Holiday Harvest is another great opportunity for community outreach and the perfect venue to make the announcement about our jingle contest."
Holiday Harvest is a 15-day festival featuring a Farmers Market and activities like a massive Pumpkin Pyramid (made up of more than 3,000 pumpkins). An intriguing Hay Maze constructed on site and an impressive collection of antique tractors that once worked the fields of South Carolina farms are also on display. Numerous booths offer fall/winter food specialities. Hay rides and sleigh rides are available, and pumpkin decorating, face painting and a pumpkin pie eating contest add to the atmosphere of fun.
