Sideshow Fans, Get Your Cameras Rolling For A Chance to Win a Trip To The 2009 San Diego Comic-Con International!
Thousand Oaks, California (March, 2009) -Sideshow Collectibles is a global leader in the manufacturing of licensed and proprietary figure collectibles and will hold its annual video contest for the best fan-made commercial with an incredible grand prize—a trip for two to the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con International. Participants will submit a 60-second commercial to Sideshow featuring the slogan ‘Collect Like You Give A Damn’ for their chance at one of the top three places or a special award voted on by the collecting community: Fan Favorite. Each award has a unique prize opportunity. The winner of the First Place grand prize will select either the Comic-Con trip, inclusive of airfare and hotel accommodations, and of course, passes to the event. If the winner is unable to attend the Con, an alternate prize is available which is valued at over $2,500. The Second Place and Third Place winners will be awarded valuable Sideshow Gift Certificates valued at $1,500 and $750 respectively. The collector community will also be invited to cast their votes for their favorite commercial in the Fan Favorite category, an honor that awards the winner the choice of one of three extremely rare Artist Proof collectibles.
After the success of the 2008 “Figure it out!” Commercial Contest, Sideshow CEO Greg Anzalone is looking forward to what the fans will create for this year’s competition. “Our collectors are very talented, and we enjoy seeing their creative skills. It’s also a fun and exciting way for us to see how the collectors view our products and how they share the Sideshow message,” said Anzalone. The ‘Collect Like You Give A Damn’ Commercial Contest began on Tuesday, March 17, and participants will have until midnight on Sunday, May 31, to submit their commercials.
