Yahoo! India makes an ‘Uncannies’ launch for advertising folks

Yahoo! India has taken an initiative to bring creative minds of the advertising industry together and share their best works. Uncannies, as the initiative is called, is open to creative agencies and individuals from print, television, radio, outdoor and the online medium. The participants can post their best work to an online portal (www.uncannies.com), which will be judged by a panel of experts from the advertising fraternity.

“An excellent creative speaks for itself. Uncannies from Yahoo! India brings together all creative minds of the industry to share their best advertising work. It’s also a great platform to discover fresh ideas and showcase top talent in advertising,” said Nitin Mathur, Director, Marketing, Yahoo! India.

To take part in this contest, participants must submit their individual entries directly onto the contest website www.uncannies.com. Entries close on February 28, 2009. All shortlisted participants would be notified via email when their entry gets featured on the site for voting. Entries can be at an individual or agency level, with a maximum of 200 entries per person.

All participant entries would be judged by an independent panel of experts from the advertising industry. Users would also get a chance to rate the shortlisted creative for the entire contest duration. However, the expert panel’s decision would be final. Top three winners would walk away with an Apple iPhone each, while the next top 100 participants would get interesting Yahoo! merchandise as consolation prizes.
