Oink Ink Radio Announces Deadline For ?Dead Radio ContestEighth Annual Dead Radio contest entry deadline is May 15, 2005 (April 12, 2005)
Its that time of year again? Oink Ink Radio, a bicoastal agency specializing in the creation and production of award winning radio commercials, announced today the call for entries in its ?Eighth Annual Dead Radio Contest.
Frustrated copywriters across America are invited to submit their best radio scripts that suffered heart-wrenching deaths on clients conference tables. The winning script will be produced or resuscitated by Oink Ink free of charge. And its lucky creator will receive an all-expense-paid trip for two to Oink Inks production studios in New York City or Santa Monica, CA, to attend the recording session.
?Every copywriter weve ever worked with has a drawer or computer full of great radio scripts that never got off the ground, said Oink Ink Radio president Dan Price. ?Well heres the perfect opportunity to dust them off.
The contest, in its eighth successful year running, has brought back to life the best-of-the-best dead scripts year after year, and its paid off. Numerous winning spots that were initially rejected by the agencys clients were, after being produced, reconsidered and eventually aired. Two such spots went on, in fact, to achieve Mercury Finalist status as well as winners of National Addys and one Gold Winner at the London International Advertising Awards.
Last years Dead Radio winner was Greg Christiansen, hailing from Young & Rubicam/Chicago. His spot entitled ?Testing was designed for the Miller Brewing Company promoting their new Fridge Pack. ?I knew it was a great spot for the product. When the client didnt select it I assumed it wasnt going to go anywhere, but then to have Oink Ink choose to produce it was a great feeling. Now, rather than having the script thrown into a drawer, its on my reel.
All contestants submitting scripts will receive a copy of the winning entry. The deadline for entries is May 15, 2005.
Oink Inks East Coast office is located at 38 Greene Street in Manhattans SoHo district. Its West Coast office is located at 1119 Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica, CA.
