Photobucket Announces Mandy Moore Video Mash-Up Winner
Senior at Vintage High School in Napa, CA Wins a Private Mandy Moore Performance for Classmates
Photobucket, the world’s largest personal media site, is pleased to announce the winning entry into the Mandy Moore Extraordinary Video Remix competition. With over 20% of the more than 2,500 votes cast, Vintage High School in Napa, CA was the clear winner.
Mandy herself called the creator of the remix to offer her congratulations on the winning submission, which can be viewed here. During the month of April, Photobucket users and Mandy Moore fans were invited to create video mash-ups from their own personal content (photographs, graphics, artwork, video) and branded Mandy Moore images, video and music assets provided by the artist. Thousands of remixes have been created using Photobucket’s new web-based remix service, Adobe Premiere Express, which is available free of charge to all Photobucket users.
Invited seniors will enjoy a live, acoustic performance by Mandy Moore on campus this Thursday, May 24, 2007.
“This is the perfect example of the appeal that remixes hold for both brands and users,” said Alex Welch, CEO at Photobucket. “The students at Vintage High School were able to exhibit their creativity and originality and Mandy Moore was able to engage with her fans in a memorable, personal, interactive way. We look forward to creating future branded mash-up content for our users.”
“Seeing the way this record was interpreted by the students at Vintage High School was such a great experience,” said Mandy Moore. “These students are truly extraordinary, both in their creativity and dedication to their school.”
“I have never won a contest like this before and I am very excited that my video was chosen,” said Nikelle Riggs, Vintage High School Senior and creator of the winning mash-up. “I had a lot of fun making it, and I’m very glad that Mandy Moore liked it!”
