AFE, FMRF Launch Second Video Contest
The second annual #FlowerLoveVideoContest kicked off on Oct. 1, 2018.
Sponsored by Floral Marketing Research Fund (FMRF) and American Floral Endowment (AFE), the contest aims to inspire creative videos from anyone and everyone who loves flowers, and promotes the use and giving of fresh flowers.
Submissions should be 30 to 60 second videos that may be skits, animation, surprise moments, musicals, testimonials or other types of videos, as long as they feature and promote fresh flowers.
The top 10 video finalists chosen by a selection committee will be eligible for the $4,000 grand prize and two honorable mentions of $500 each.
The contest website goes live Oct. 1 and the submissions will begin to be accepted the same day. The deadline for submissions will be Dec. 2.
Finalists will be announced and public voting will begin on Dec. 12. The official winners will be announced in late January.
The winners and the entire video gallery will be published online as part of a new video library after the contest ends.
They will also be used as a part of Flower Marketing Monday. Every Monday, one of the videos is shared on social media and made available for floral industry members to download, personalize and use on their social media or web pages to help promote flowers.
Beginning October 1, to submit your video entry you may visit contest.fmrf.org or upload your video with the hashtag #FlowerLoveVideoContest on Twitter and Instagram. No entry will be collected if submitted prior to the launch date.
