The Green Party catches on!

[From t2 creative technology solutions]

This is a follow up to my previous blog regarding Irish politicians utilising the internet. Here is a nice and simple example of how it’s done. It’s nothing too cutting edge or demanding. It doesn’t take a whole pile of organisation, doesn’t cost a pile and will bring their message to a new audience. It’s a video competiton. A viral one. Sounds infectious….ahem…sorry.

“The Green Party has launched a competition for filmmakers and animators, who are asked to submit short viral videos promoting green messages. First prize is €1,000 and the winner will be selected by delegates at the Party’s Convention in March 2009″.

How easy is that? For a measly €1,000 they get lots o’ advertising, people promoting their message and many more people soaking up their greenie vibes through these youtube videos. The 2 videos with the largest number of views will be shortlisted and the winner will be decided at the Green Convention in March.

Easy Peasy.
