Best trip: Trip to NYC for the Anchorman 2 premiere in the 'I Am Ron Burgundy' Video Contest. Do you have many leather-bound books and an apartment that smells of rich mahogany? More importantly, do you have a pitch-perfect impression of the world’s greatest newsman? Do your best Ron Burgundy and you could become an Anchorman on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Anchorman 2’. Nine Finalists will be chosen through live events across the country, and one Finalist will be chosen through a national search using Instagram. All 10 Finalists will receive a PS3 and 1 year of EPIX, but only one Ron can reign supreme and earn that trip to New York City. Open to US residents, 18 and older. Due November 30th.
OVC’s Pick of the Week: Our overall favorite contest this week is the Sydney 2014: Lipton Video Contest, brought to you by MOFILM. Lipton wants you to create a film which celebrates tea drinkers and their outlook on life. Why do I like this contest? Well, I’m a BIG tea drinker, so that’s reason enough! OK, OK, well it’s also great because, like ALL MOFILM contests, 5 Winners will be awarded cash prizes. Plus, the top video will earn a trip for 2 to Sydney, Australia and $8,000. Open worldwide, 16 and older. Pitch to earn up to a $2,000 production budget by November 25th, otherwise final video are due January 20th, 2014.
