Share Article

Brickfish(TM), the online content marketing platform, today announced the launch of the "Songs from the Heart - War" campaign, the first in a series of political song competitions beginning August 1. The contest, located at http://www.brickfish.com/politics/warsongs, invites both aspiring vocalists and impassioned activists to put their views about war to music - whether it's a political parody, anti-war rap or a patriotic polka.

'The Songs from the Heart - War' campaign is sure to bring about some intense performances laced with a bevy of different emotions. Enabling people to share their views and opinions directly - and then providing the ability to share this content across the Internet - creates a whole new venue for debate and dramatically increases awareness on this and other critical political issues.

    "Songs from the Heart - War" is an inaugural campaign in the Brickfish Politics Category sponsored by an anonymous war veteran who wants the public to tune in to the topic of war. Songs must be submitted in either audio or video format and feature original music and lyrics in any genre. Three winners will be selected to win $500 each. Winners will include Brickfish Choice, highest vote-score, and most virally distributed song.

According to Brickfish CEO Shahi Ghanem, the Brickfish platform creates an ideal arena to increase awareness on political issues and for audience members to take a more vocal stance on important topics. Previously offered as a platform for brand marketing to consumers, the Company recently expanded its offering to the political landscape because its ability to propel messages virally across the Internet quickly and effectively translated perfectly to the grassroots efforts of candidates and advocates. Brickfish campaigns collect entries in the form of photos, audio, video and blogs, known as User Generated Content. The Brickfish platform then allows users to review and comment on entries and to share their favorites through email, Instant Messaging and hundreds of Internet sites.

"War is one of the hardest hitting political topics in the world today," said Ghanem. "'The Songs from the Heart - War' campaign is sure to bring about some intense performances laced with a bevy of different emotions. Enabling people to share their views and opinions directly - and then providing the ability to share this content across the Internet - creates a whole new venue for debate and dramatically increases awareness on this and other critical political issues."

The "Songs from the Heart - War" contest ends September 15. For more information about Brickfish, visit http://www.Brickfish.com.
