Suwanee, GA (PRWEB) January 04, 2013
Hisense, the global manufacturer and innovator of home appliances and consumer electronics, is pleased to announce that submissions to the two $15,000 contests and the daily giveaways have closed. Hisense, wanting to grow global awareness and brand recognition, launched two crowd-sourced projects for an Audio Logo and a Music Jingle. Both contests carried with them a $15,000 prize purse.
The contests started on December 12th, 2012, and continued to January 2nd, 2013, which ended the preliminary contests. During that time people were invited to upload either a one second Audio Logo or a three to five second Music Jingle. Concurrent with the $15,000 contests, Hisense also gave away prizes depending on the time of day a submission was made. At 12 AM US Central Standard Time, two submissions for the Audio Jingle, dubbed “The First Voice of the Day” received an iPod Nano. At 8:00 PM US CST to 8:15 PM US CST, the giveaway was known as “The Time is Now” for all submissions for the Musical Jingle received a 2 GB USB flash drive.
Now that the preliminary contest has ended the quarterfinals are beginning. From January 3rd to the 5th, a professional panel of judges will select 20 of the most popular submissions for the Audio Logo and 10 Music Jingle submissions. Of these submissions winners will be selected using two criteria: 1) popular vote from the preliminary contest; and 2) the panels’ selections. Winners will be announced on the 12th of January, 2013.
