Black Forest Gummies has launched the “Black Forest Across America” social media campaign on its Facebook page to encourage fans to share a photo with their friends and family of a place they travel to or where they eat their Black Forest Gummies.

Inspired by the many places people travel with snacks, “Black Forest Across America” emphasizes how Black Forest products are the perfect snack on the go. After uploading a photo of where they eat their gummies, fans are encouraged to share their photo with friends and family across social media. Fans can enter the contest on the Black Forest Gummies Facebook page for a chance to win a $1,000 airline gift card.

“We want to remind people that Black Forest Gummies are a great travel companion,” said Linda Severin, VP of Marketing for Ferrara Candy Company. “'Black Forest Across America' gives us that opportunity and gives fans a chance to show us all the fun places they go.”

Black Forest turned to Brickfish, a leader in digital, social and mobile solutions, to build a social media campaign to drive engagement and build brand awareness and advocacy.

“Many people enjoy sharing their travel photos with friends and family on social media,” said Michael Mullarkey, CEO and President of Brickfish. “This campaign gives fans the opportunity to do just that, and we're excited to see the photos fans will share with Black Forest."

At the conclusion of the campaign, the top 25 eligible entries with the highest score will be judged on creativity and relevance. The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 airline gift card, and the runner-up will receive a Canon PowerShot Digital Camera. Each week of the campaign, one additional winner will be selected based on score, creativity and relevance and will receive a $25 iTunes gift card. All winners will also receive Black Forest Gummies along with their prize. The Black Forest Across America campaign concludes on June 24, 2013.
