"By leveraging our relationship with The Celebrity Apprentice, NASCAR, and now Brickfish, we are encouraging consumers to experience Kodak's inkjet value proposition first hand," said Jeff Hayzlett, chief business development officer and vice president of Kodak. "The show and online contest allows us to reach current and potential customers with the 'no compromise' message - encouraging consumers to take a stand against high priced ink."
Kodak will select the winners (based on 50 percent creativity and 50 percent content) for four of the five categories: most artistic photo, best friends & family photo, wackiest photo and most interesting video moment. The most viral entry winner will be determined by the highest viral score. Each of the five category winners will receive a KODAK EASYSHARE 5300 All-in-One Printer autographed by Donald Trump. In addition, Kodak will select the grand prize winner, who will receive a trip to the NASCAR(R) Sprint Cup Series(TM) race at Chicagoland Speedway(R) on July 12, 2008, and a KODAK EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One Printer autographed by Donald Trump.
