Kingston Digital, Inc., the flash memory products affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, today announced it's hosting a How Can a Kingston SSDNow Drive Change Your Life? video contest. The event, open to U.S. residents only, is asking entrants to creatively demonstrate in video format how using a solid state drive can benefit and change your daily life. Creativity is the key here and a total of $16,000US will be awarded to the winners.
According to Kingston's SSD business manager, Ariel Perez:
"Kingston encourages people to create videos based on real-life daily use of an SSD or something out of their imagination, We’ve heard from customers who praise the durability of the drive as they take their laptop to remote places. Other people have told us the speed and overall system responsiveness from the performance boost of the SSD has made their older PC feel like new again. Whatever it may be, Kingston might take one of the winning ideas from our video contest and create an entire marketing campaign around it."
Judging will be based on creativity as well as the video’s concept and how it is brought to life on screen. Video entries should be posted to a video hosting site such as YouTube or Vimeo and the link can be submitted through the Kingston video contest site. First place gets $7,500 and second place $5,000 with a total of 13 winners being chosen. The contest begins July 19, 2010 and continues through September 20, 2010. Good luck everyone and get those creative juices flowing and show us what you've got.
