Any chance they will extend the deadline? I just found out we will be getting 4G coverage in my area right about the time the contest ends. Looks like there aren’t a lot of entries right now.

Hi Geotony,

No there’s probably no chance that the contest will be extended. If you check out the brief we also accept 3G submissions in this first round.

Thanks!

Any idea when they will announce who the top 10 are and send out phones?

We will be notifying the top ten and over-nighting the phones (already activated) on Monday the 22nd. This is why it’s important to have your address filled out. It’s cool, no one can see it except the people that are sending you your phones.

We’re looking to have the re-shoots with the new phones resubmitted on the 28th.

It’s all in the brief.

Thanks,
Manny

Hey all, I need to address something really quick. Ok we all enjoyed the robot video. It was pretty funny. But we had to remove it because it was a bit too out there for the client. For those of you who didn’t get to see it….you missed out.

Thanks,
Manny

Yes,

We’ll post and notify the top ten via email!

This should be within the next few hours because we’re mailing out the phones today.

There are still 8 of you that haven’t filled out your address/phone number in your profile or provided it to us via email. We’ll need that to send out the phones to the top ten today!

If we haven’t gotten an e-mail yet should we assume we aren’t a finalist?

Hi there!

The finalists are posted on the blog and have been emailed.

See them here

Thanks to all who participated. We really appreciated all the entries and the time put into each video. The client literally spent 4 hours discussing the videos.

Thanks again,
Manny

Will the commercials air on TV?

Hey Marc,

It is up to the client’s discretion how they will use the videos. So we’re not sure if they will be aired on television.

Thanks,
Manny

Hey ejwill,

You are absolutely right. We are making amends as we speak. Voting will continue and is still open.

Thanks.
