Brickfish™, the leader in social media advertising, has teamed up with Family Circle magazine and eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace, to launch the “Family Circle-eBay Mother-Daughter Wardrobe Challenge.” Launching in the September 2008 issue of Family Circle to the magazine’s 21 million monthly readers, the contest asks mother-daughter teams to submit blogs or videos online at http://www.Brickfish.com/familycircle with descriptions about how they share clothing and the obstacles sharing a wardrobe presents. The grand prize-winning team, chosen by eBay Style Director Constance White and Family Circle editors, will receive $3,000 ($1,500 for mother, $1,500 for daughter) in a PayPal account to purchase a new shareable wardrobe on eBay. The winners will also receive a trip to New York City, where they’ll get professional hair and makeup styling in preparation for a photo shoot to appear in an upcoming issue of Family Circle. See http://www.Brickfish.com/familycircle for complete rules.

We are confident the fun and inspiring entries in this campaign will generate increased awareness for both eBay and Family Circle as premier destinations for today's woman.

"At Family Circle, we recognize that the bond between a mother and a daughter is unlike any other relationship, and we wanted to create a fun campaign celebrating that unique closeness," said Linda Moran Evans, beauty and fashion director at Family Circle. "We expect to see both humorous and endearing entries conveying the experience of sharing wardrobes. Whether it's one or two favorite pieces or an entire closet that the two of you swap, we want to hear about it."

In addition to the grand prize winner, eBay and Family Circle will also give away prizes for most viral and highest scoring entries. The most viral winners, chosen from the top 100 entries that were shared the most times across the Internet, will receive $1,000 ($500 for mother, $500 for daughter) in a PayPal account to buy fashionable new wardrobes on eBay. Additionally, one of the top 100 highest scoring entries, based on user feedback, will also win $1,000 ($500 for mother, $500 for daughter) in a PayPal account.

"Mothers and daughters have always known that borrowing each other's clothes is a great way to expand their wardrobes," said Constance White, eBay Style Director. "I'm looking forward to using my expertise to provide solutions to the grand prize-winning team and help them choose a new shareable wardrobe from the huge selection of clothing, shoes and accessory items available on eBay."

Brands and agencies use the Brickfish platform to launch online advertising and marketing campaigns targeted at the social networking audience.

This powerful viral marketing vehicle generates extensive brand awareness and online and offline calls-to-action from lead generation to sales.

"We're honored that two great brands will engage our audience with a campaign celebrating the special nature of the mother-daughter relationship. Women everywhere will get the chance to share their memorable experiences with thousands of others across hundreds of social networks," said Brickfish CEO Brian Dunn. "We are confident the fun and inspiring entries in this campaign will generate increased awareness for both eBay and Family Circle as premier destinations for today's woman."
