And since MYX® always wants to engage its core audience with everything it does, why not involve them and their creativity in our first major campaign of the year which is our billboard launch in the Bay Area?
Redwood City, CA (Vocus) February 27, 2010
MYX®, the only music entertainment and lifestyle channel in the nation catering to Asian American youth, rings in the Chinese New Year with a fun contest for camera bugs with an eagle’s eye and a wicked sense of humor.
MYX® recently launched an outdoor campaign in over 40 locations and on over 100 buses plying strategic routes in the San Francisco Bay Area to announce its carriage on Comcast’s Digital Preferred Tier on Channel 368. To celebrate the launch and in keeping with the excitement for the Lunar New Year, the channel kicks off its MYX® Billboard Photo-BOMB Contest from March 1-12, 2010.
“I think all of us have ‘photobombed’ in our lives. We love hopping in a photo right before it is taken,'' said MYX® Channel Head Miguel Santos with a laugh. ''And since MYX® always wants to engage its core audience with everything it does, why not involve them and their creativity in our first major campaign of the year which is our billboard launch in the Bay Area?”
The contest idea is simple: Open to all ages 12 and up, contestants need to find a MYX® billboard or bus ad, take a picture of themselves in front of it, and then send the picture -- including the location where it was sighted -- to any of the following MYX® accounts: myx.tv on the web, myxtv on Twitter, and facebook.com/myxtv on Facebook. MYX® will select randomly one winner every weekday within the 12-day duration of the campaign. Daily prizes include giveaways from renowned apparel brand Johnny Cupcakes and the Bay Area-based Upper Playground. A surprise grand prize awaits the last winner on March 12.
“We hope that this contest also brings MYX® to more people,'' said Santos. ''We want them to discover what MYX® has in store for them: relevant programming to the fast-growing Asian American youth population, shows that address the cultural reality that many of them want to reconnect to their roots, and a venue for independent American and Asian American music scene artists to showcase their world-class work.”
MYX® recently drew a lot of attention to the two new programs it launched early this year: Vinyl Addiction, which takes the audience to an up-close look at the Vinyl Toy Revolution, and Visual Crunch which goes behind the scenes of groundbreaking, creative music videos produced at impossibly low budgets -- veritable video miracles at this age.
