A new contest has been unveiled for the Watchmen movie where fans can create a “Veidt Enterprises” commercial to appear in the film itself.
Snyder posted the information about the contest to YouTube, along with “Veidt” logos and other assorted product photos and video downloads for assets to be used in the commercial.
In the contest, fans will create advertisements for billionaire Adrian Veidt, aka Ozymandias, whose massive commercial empire becomes apparent through advertisements which appear all over the pages of the original comic series.
The contest ends on June 2, 2008. The 40 finalists will win signed posters from Zack Snyder. The top five finalists from user votes will win High-Definition Canon Vixia HG10 camcorders. Up to 20 of Zack’s favorite finalists will win $1000.00, and have a chance to be included in the Watchmen feature film itself.
Head on over to www.youtube.com/watchmenmovie to watch Zack’s video introduction, get more contest details, and to start download all of the assets you’ll need to make your commercial.
