New York, NY (PRWEB) April 23, 2012
Eyefly.com, the online portal founded by Bluefly, Inc. for fashionable prescription eyeglasses starting at $99, has launched a new campaign targeting college fashionphiles. Leveraging Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest to spread the word, the brand has reached out to college campuses across the country to submit videos and images reflecting their visionary eyewear style. The winning photograph will be rewarded with a $500 splurge, while the victorious video will win a $2,000 spree.
“When you think about the fact that Facebook and Apple were founded by college students, it’s clear that campuses incubate so much talent,” Eyefly CEO, Joseph Park, began. “Add to that the incredible style movements happening among students across the country. With Eyefly laser-focused on eyewear, it just made sense to tap the universities for a visionary perspective on what’s next in style.”
The contest, which began March 19th, ends May 2nd. Contestants may submit their photos and videos directly on the Eyefly Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/Eyefly
