The Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC) has announced a new contest with a $10,000 cash prize and the chance for international exposure for a budding television commercial producer.
EPIC’s “Fuel the Change” video contest is looking for “a 27 second video promoting the advantages of ethanol. How is ethanol a part of your life? How do you see ethanol making a difference in the environment? Or, describe your burning desire to drive Americans to use ethanol.” While it is ideally about consumers educating other consumers, nothing in the contest rules prohibits farmers from entering, as long as they are not working for, or related to employees of, EPIC or its affiliated members and agencies.
The grand prize is $10,000 and the opportunity to have the video aired during ABC-TV coverage of the 2008 Indianapolis 500 on May 25. There are also a number of other prizes up for grabs, including a $5,000 “People’s Choice” and three $1,250 “Sponsor’s Choice” awards.
