Little Rock, AR -- Alltel, America's largest wireless network, and Atom Entertainment Inc., the broadband entertainment leader, today announced a new contest on the AtomFilms' Web site (www.atomfilms.com) calling on consumers to submit original short films. The contest invites wireless phone users to submit video clips, filmed on their wireless handset, featuring their circle of friends and family.
The contest's "Are you Circle Worthy" theme is tied to the recent launch of Alltel's exclusive "My Circle" calling feature. "My Circle" enables Alltel Wireless customers to receive free unlimited calls to and from their "My Circle" numbers any time of day. Customers on select rate plans can choose any combination of wireless, home and office numbers located anywhere in the U.S., regardless of local phone company or wireless carrier.
Entries to the contest will be accepted at http://alltel.atomfilms.com until 11:59 p.m. PST on July 10. Ten entries will be selected on the basis of best interpretation of the "Are you Circle Worthy?" theme, artistic technique and production quality. All 10 finalists will win $1,000 and have their short films posted on AtomFilms. Between August 15 and August 28 consumers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite of the 10 chosen finalists. The Grand Prize winner will be announced on September 19, winning a Grand Prize of $5,000. Complete contest rules and details of film submission, can be found at http://alltel.atomfilms.com .
