Two contests that started on December 12th, 2012, for purses of $15,000, will have winners announced on January 12th, 2013. Nearly a month ago, Hisense launched two contests to determine both an Audio Logo and a Music Jingle for their brand for the New Year. In an effort to find a sound that was both distinct and resonated with the Hisense community, Hisense hosted two contests with purses of $15,000 each.
The first contest was looking for a voice to be the Audio Logo of Hisense. The Audio Logo was a submission for a one second sound clip of the word, “Hisense”. To qualify, participants were invited to upload their submissions to the Hisense contest website at sound.hisense.com. After entries were uploaded to the website, they could then be voted on by the community. To encourage participation and reward contestants, starting on the 25th, Hisense began a giveaway of an iPod Shuffle to the first submission for each contest category starting at 12 AM US Central Standard Time. This giveaway was known as “The First Voice of the Day”.
The second $15,000 contest was for a three to five second Music Jingle. The Music Jingle semifinalists were also advanced similar to the Audio Logo entries, through popular vote. A giveaway was also started with this contest, known as “The Time is Now” which gave away a free 16 GB USB flash drive for all entries during the time of 8:00 PM US CST to 8:15 PM US CST.
The quarterfinals ran from the 2nd of January to the 6th. During this time the entries were listened and evaluated by a panel of professional judges. The panel of judges included Chinese rock stars, professional commercial music jingle writers, entertainment personalities, and Hisense executives. Now, with the quarterfinals over, the finals have begun.
The finals will end on January 11th. The top 20 entries that have received the most votes and have been passed by the panel of judges await more popular votes. The entry with the popular vote in both categories will be declared the winner of their respective contests.
