The first deadline for submissions to 'Show Your Best', to be in with a chance of winning a trip to the London 2012 Olympic Games has been set for Thursday March 1, 2012.
Show Your Best to the World is the International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s latest promotional campaign inviting people around the world to demonstrate their best.
Entrants will be given the chance to be part of a global Olympic TV spot and to win a trip to the London 2012 Olympic Games as a special guest of the IOC, as well as a host of other prizes.
To be eligible for the first trip giveaway, videos entries must be submitted to the websites by the end of the day on March 1st.
The IOC is working with Olympic broadcast partners worldwide to promote the initiative through a broadcast spot depicting some of the greatest Olympic moments of all time.
Complementing these iconic performances is footage of people doing their best – whatever that may be. Throughout the spot, a yellow line symbolises the threshold of achievement we set for ourselves, be that pole vaulting higher than anyone has before, or climbing a rope for the first time.
To view the spot: https://showyourbest.olympic.org/en#!/video/tvc_longformat
In the run-up to the London 2012 Olympic Games, a second TV spot will be drawn from among the video entries, chosen by a panel including Olympic athletes. This spot, made up of user-generated content, will be aired in the weeks before and during the Games, and will also be shown on the big screens at the London 2012 Olympic venues.
The digital component, www.olympic.org/showyourbest, is the hub of the campaign, where people can watch videos from all over the world, vote on their favourites or submit their own videos. At the heart of the experience is the video montage creator that allows people to upload and incorporate their videos into some of the greatest Olympic moments of all time before sharing it with their friends.
