    It's time for 3reef's 'Get the Word Out' 2011 contest!! We are dusting off a classic for a big, big, BIG contest. We have a ENTIRE BOX OF ORPHEK LED LAMPS to give away. PR-25s and ML7s - the latest and greatest from 3reef sponsor Orphek USA. It's all going out the door! The winner doesn't get 1 lamp - but 4! 2nd and 3rd place get a few Orpheks too! We are nuts!! You get it all!

    The Concept:

    It is time to get the word out on 3reef and we need your help! So we are asking that you come up with a clever way of promoting 3reef in your neighborhood, ie - banners, flyers, promotional events, etc..
    (That are legal and effective :) )

    There are two ways to play:

    1) Upload a video to YouTube and post it in a new thread on the contest board.

    2) Take photos of your 3reef promotion and post them in a new thread on the contest board.



    DEADLINE - ALL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY JUNE [STRIKE]6th[/STRIKE] EXTENDED TO JUNE 20th!

    The winners will be decided by a 3reef member vote.







    The skinny:
    1) The event must publicly promote 3Reef.com
    2) Judgment will be made on creativity and public reactions
    3) Videos / photos / event should not involve anything illegal whatsoever
    4) Videos / photos / event should not paint 3reef in a negative way to the general public
    5) Videos / photos / event should not contain copyrighted material
    6) Videos / photos / event cannot be digitally created.


    NEW - For you old-timers - we've made it a bit easier by allowing photos of your promotion. That said, those that take the time and effort to make a video may have a greater impact than those that just submit photos.



    A previous video winner!




    My example :)



    See all old videos here




    To embed the video:
    [​IMG] <-- THIS IS THE BUTTON! :) Found above the text box when you are typing a new post.

    Then put the ID of your video in between the tags like this:

    Code:
    [ youtube ]iW7dtZIwISA[/ youtube ]
    (I added the spaces around the word 'youtube' for demo'ing. )


    Your Video will be voted on by visitors and members of 3reef.com.
    8) 8)

    (voting date to follow)


    DEADLINE - ALL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY JUNE 6th!

    Where does one shop to find a clownfish hat like that? Both videos got the word out, while being very humorous. :D

    I bet it is going to be a challenge trying to compete with something like that. I think you have to be willing to embarrass yourself a bit. lol. I might give it a try...

    I'm afraid I'm too lazy and un-inventive for this type of deal--even when cool, free stuff is proffered.... Good luck to the others.
