"Viral videos featuring weird and funny scenarios about mosquitoes. Fantastic!" David Shaw, CEO, Quantum Health
Eugene, OR (PRWEB) October 18, 2010
Quantum Health, the sponsors of the Buzz Away Extreme Video Challenge, announced the ten finalists who will compete for the $1,000 Grand Prize as well as the $250 winner for ‘most viewed’ video. Buzz Away Extreme is the leading all-natural insect repellent.
The Grand Prize winner will be chosen by voters who make their way to the contest’s web site at: http://www.quantumhealth.com/videocontest/vote. Votes must be cast by midnight October 31st.
The ‘Most Viewed’ prize of $250 was awarded to Theresa Golb for her piece entitled “Fifty’s Buzz Away Commercial”. Her video is also in the running for the Grand Prize. Theresa is 19 and lives near Chicago, where she is a Communications major with plans to be a writer/director.
The ten finalists were chosen by a panel of judges including advertising, film, music and performing arts professionals.
Unlike most contests sponsored by product makers, the entrants were not required to show or use the product. “Showing Buzz Away was optional,” explained company CEO, David Shaw. “We wanted entrants to feel free from commercial constraints to foster more creativity,” Shaw added.
About thirty people submitted videos from ages 13 and up. Storylines ranged from apocalyptic science fiction mosquito dominated worlds, to super hero Mosquito Man to clever animation and spoofy commercials.
Buzz Away Extreme is an all-natural, highly effective, chemical-free way to repel mosquitoes, ticks, flies, gnats and no see ums. Independent clinical and field testing show that Buzz Away Extreme can last for 4 hours and more, and is as effective as many traditional, chemical based formulas. Years of customer satisfaction have made Buzz Away Extreme America's leading natural mosquito repellent.
