Adobe and Pointroll contest to create video ad for EPIX
Adobe and Pointroll partnered on a contest to create an innovative video ad for the newly launched premium television channel EPIX. Agencies can submit their creative ideas through the contest website “Give Ideas Life” until November 23, 2009. Submissions will be judged by a panel of industry leaders, and the winning campaign will be unveiled December 21, 2009. To get the right recognition for your work, the winning ad campaign will be displayed in Time Square.
As inspiration for what is possible today with video ads, look at Pointroll’s Paramount video ad example on their website. Yes, that’s a fullscreen Flash HD video ad ;-).
If you are part of the selected agencies, go ahead and let your creative juices flow!
