Denver, CO, February 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, the fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, announced today their new “Show Me Your Love” contest in celebration of this year’s Valentine’s Day. Outskirts Press is offering its authors an opportunity to win a free Apple iPad 2 by recording a video segment showing or explaining how much they love being a published writer.
Publishing can change a person's life! Now, Outskirts Press authors can grab their video cameras or video-enabled smartphones and expand on their artistic creativity this Valentine’s Day by recording a 1-3 minute video showing their love for or their publisher, Outskirts Press. Jerry Maguire may have said “Show me the money,” but Outskirts Press is saying “Show me the love” this Valentine’s Day and will be rewarding one lucky self-publishing videographer a free Apple iPad 2.
“Get out your cameras and start filming,” encourages Outskirts Press Manager of Author Support Elise L. Connors. “Our contest is open to all 8,000+ of our published authors who want to share their love of writing, being published, and Outskirts Press. We receive written and audio testimonials all the time from our many satisfied authors. Now here's one more medium to share the love and be in the running for a free iPad!"
Authors who record a brief video – between 1 - 3 minutes in length – that creatively shows why they love publishing with Outskirts Press will be eligible for finalist consideration. All video files should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and shared on Facebook or uploaded to YouTube by midnight on February 24th.
Among all the entries received, Outskirts Press will choose three finalists at its own discretion and based in part on the number of comments/likes received on social media channels for the shared videos. Those three finalists will be showcased in a blog post at http://www.selfpublishingnews.com in which everyone will be invited to vote for the winner in a public poll.
Authors who submit a video should make sure all their family and friends press the “Thumbs Up” button on Facebook and/or YouTube and vote for their videos if they are selected for the final poll.
“We at Outskirts Press have truly been lavished with love from our authors over the years,” added Ms. Connors, “and thought that in celebration of this Valentine’s Day, we would put together a fun, easy contest for any author to enter and give a little bit of that love back by making one author our 2012 Valentine with a free Apple iPad 2.”
