Buzz Away Extreme's 2011 video contest challenges filmmakers to use mosquito slapping rhythms to create a cool dance video.

A video contest that makes mosquitoes fun? You bet!

Are you itchin’ to dance? Quantum Health, makers of the nation’s leading natural mosquito repellent, Buzz Away Extreme, is pleased to announce its second annual video contest. This year’s video contest takes its inspiration from America’s favorite pastime, dancing. To find out more, go to

This year’s entrants are being asked to create dance moves composed entirely of mosquito slapping rhythms and offers two prizes; $1,000 for the best overall video and $250 for the most viewed video. Entries are due by July 5, 2011.

“A slap dance uses body percussion,” explained Quantum Health CEO David Shaw. “The idea is to slap, slide, whack or shuffle the mosquitoes off your body in a sound-making rhythmic fashion. And while you're doing that, you can stomp your feet, click your tongue, clap your hands or even crack your knuckles. Entrants can use music or let the rhythms they create become the music.”

The contestants can go solo, dance in a group or use animation. The key is to match the sound of mosquitoes buzzing and landing with the rhythmic sounds of the body percussion.

Last year’s video contest was all about making films that were funny or off-beat. Over 40 people entered. The top ten, including the grand prize winner, “Mosquito Apocalypse’ can be seen at

"Summer is fun, but mosquitoes aren't. Our contests offer people a cool way to have some fun with mosquitoes and Buzz Away Extreme offers a natural way to keep them away," Shaw added.
