THE 30-SECOND COMMERCIAL COMPETITION
many times have you said, while watching a TV commercial, "I could do
so much better than that." Well, now is your chance to prove it and win
$500.00 while doing it, and perhaps sell your concept to a third party
Starting today we are accepting 30-second commercials to compete under the following guidelines for each competition:
Commercial must represent a REAL product or type of business, but you
must CHANGE THE NAME of the product or business. No commercial using
the actual, trademarked name of products or businesses will be
accepted. (For example, instead of "Coca Cola," call the product "Lola
Cola" or something of that nature).
The reason behind this requirement is that the winning AND runners-up
will be played permanently on a special section of WRPN.tv while we
send invitations to national and local companies and products to visit
and view. If they desire more information on having the commercial
produced for their own brand or business because they love your
concept, all your contact info will be displayed along with the
commercial you produced.
- Accepted commercials will be judged on concept and originality (60%) and production values (40%)
It's very likely that if a product or business is interested in your
commercial concept, they will want a more experienced company to
produce it, however, if you submit a commercial with excellent
production values, it will be up to you to talk them into letting you
produce it. WE don't require or expect a percentage or fee from your
concept sale, we just promote the site and lure the potential buyers.
To submit for the competition, you must send us an email describing the
type of commercial you will be submitting. A $35.00 submission fee (per
commercial) must be sent via PayPal ONLY, including the submission
number we will send you AFTER we receive your initial email. Send Email
Submissions will be reviewed and an email will be sent confirming
whether or not it is accepted. And while most competitions keep your
entire submission fee whether you're accepted or not (a practice we do
not deem as fair), we will instead issue a refund of $25.00 via PayPal
if you are not accepted (this is the submission fee less a $10
In the event not enough submissions are received or accepted for
competition, the full refund of $35 will be sent to you via PayPal.
-Winner's and runner's-up will have free placement of their ad during WRPN.tv's 2013 TCM Fest celebrity interviews
SUBMISSION FORMATS FOR BOTH COMPETITIONS:
VIMEO, YOUTUBE or FACEBOOK embeding code NOT AVAILABLE to the general
public. (If a submission is found to be available to the general
public, it will be disqualified).
we will send you a DROPBOX invitation for you to send the commercial
using the exact same compression guidelines required by VIMEO.
TO THE TALENT APPEARING IN EITHER OF THE COMMERCIAL COMPETITIONS:
the commercial you appeared in won or not, you may be selected for an
AWARD for best performance (on camera and voice over talent). No Fee,
