The “Counselors to America’s Small Business” SCORE has partnered with Brother International Corporation, a leading provider of office technology products, to launch “BizClips: The Small Business Productivity Makeover Video Contest.” All qualifying small businesses across the U.S. are invited to make a short video telling how their company can benefit from a productivity makeover and SCORE advice.
- $2,500 in Brother™ products and services;
- A professional promotional video; and
- A trip to Washington, D.C. and national media exposure through the 2014 SCORE Awards.
The new contest was launched as a part of SCORE’s 50th anniversary celebrating the 10 million small businesses the nonprofit has assisted since 1964.
“This is a chance for small businesses to showcase themselves in front of a national audience. Not only is it a chance for the winner to become more productive through the makeover, but SCORE wants to help all small businesses access resources and information to help them be more successful” said Ken Yancey, SCORE CEO. “We’re pleased and honored to have Brother International Corporation as a sponsor of the BizClips Contest.”
All videos must be 30-60 seconds long and submitted by midnight on February 25, 2014. The public will be able to vote on their favorite businesses during a public voting round in April 2014. SCORE and the small business contestants will also actively promote voting on all eligible videos during that time. Later, a panel of small business experts will select the grand prize winner, and the top 25 finalists will be awarded a Brother P-Touch® prize.
“Brother is excited to be part of this celebration of SCORE’s great work. We encourage small businesses all across America to enter,” said John Wandishin, Vice President of Marketing for Brother International Corporation. “We welcome the opportunity, through our support of SCORE, to help small businesses grow.”
