Brewers fans asked to show creativity in new interactive contest
By / MLB.com
Fans interested in submitting an entry for the Brewers "Create a Commercial" contest are reminded that this Friday is the deadline date.
The Milwaukee Brewers are giving aspiring marketing professionals a chance to show what they have with a new creative contest where fans can "Create a Commercial." Funny, touching, serious - it doesn't matter as long as it is awesome. Fans are invited to create and submit a storyboard with their idea at Brewers.com/commercial. Entries may also be supplemented with a YouTube clip (up to 30 seconds in length) or Instagram video (up to 15 seconds in length) to further illustrate their ideas.
One winner will get the chance to direct and/or star in a spot that will play in Miller Park, on FOX Sports Wisconsin during a Brewers broadcast, and online. The winner will also receive a Brewers prize package including game tickets and a Brewers director's chair.
An internal Brewers committee will review the entries and judge them from March 3 - 7. Then, from March 10 - 23, fans will be able to vote on the finalists at Brewers.com/commercial. The spot will be produced at the beginning of the season. An air date is to be determined based on production schedules.
Entry form templates, complete details and official rules can be found at Brewers.com/commercial. The winning commercial will be produced by the Madison-based production company, Provideo.
