“Music, like all creative expression, is constantly evolving and being pushed by the artists. The EleUke is a perfect instrument for experimental musicians. With the ability to amplify and run the uke through effects pedals, manipulating the sound of the uke is only limited by the player’s imagination. This contest is intended to reward the electric ukulele community for their creativity and innovation. I'm excited to see what people come up with. The ukulele community is a diverse group of fun people,” says Cory Kerr, Director of Marketing. He goes on to say, "If I owned a music store, I'd have a few of these on the wall and use this contest to move some product. We expect that consumers will be looking to purchase EleUkes for this contest."

There are eight cash prize categories in this contest. Each video will be judged based its creativity and entertainment value. These videos can be shot in a bedroom or on a roller coaster. The sky is the limit. Play with your friends, or yourself. Most importantly, have fun.
