AtomFilm Contest On Alltel

AtomFilms (my favorite online short film service) has teamed up with Alltel to run a contest. The contest involves users submitting an original short video clip filmed on their mobile handsets, and the Are you Circle Worthy theme is tied to the recent launch of Alltel’s “My Circle” feature, which allows their customers to select certain numbers for unlimited free calls.
It’s a double boost for Alltel, as it will also encourage users to play with their handsets and learn how to use the video feature properly, probably leading to increased data usage. AtomFilms will benefit from the extra clips and the branding exposure. “Entries to the contest will be accepted at http://alltel.atomfilms.com until 11:59 p.m. PST on July 10. Ten entries will be selected on the basis of best interpretation of the “Are you Circle Worthy” theme, artistic technique and production quality. All 10 finalists will win $1,000 and have their short films posted on AtomFilms. Between August 15 and August 28 consumers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite of the 10 chosen finalists. The Grand Prize winner will be announced on September 19, winning a Grand Prize of $5,000.”
