and is it a contest?

Amit Pattnaik

Yes, Ritika, it's a video blogging contest. You will have to buy the new Colgate pack and ask your kid to cut out the figures given inside the coverpack. While he would be playing with them, you will have to take a video and also have to write a blogpost about it.

 

Yes it is a contest and time deadline is that all entries before that time will be eligible. Then closed.

After you have finished writing your post, you may submit it on the contest page here by clicking on the "Submit your Entry" button. The last date of submission is July 31st (and that too before 10:39 a.m.). Smile

Hahaa previously brands were at least sending free samples and now they want us to buy too! I would take my kid to the beach and let him have fun with sand castles than buying Colgate packets and manipulate the little mind in such silly ways.... [Sigh]

If they're getting a coverage out of it, its not free. Not even close. Its ROI, even if the person doesn't win. 

Nandini Deka

they didn't force you, right? ...taking part is one's own prerogative I suppose. how manipulating minds et all comes in the picture?

@The Sorcerer: Right... right... right dude!

 

@Nandini Deka: Neither did I request my fellow bloggers to boycott this contest, right? I just expressed my opinion (which is of course against this campaign) as I found it not so favorable for the trend-setting of blogosphere.

 

@Rio De La Sciocco: Hi5 Dada...

 

 

 

Nandini Deka

OK..so had they sent free samples...then wouldn't it have been the alleged manipulating the little mind in silly ways too? Or it would have been fine then. ( curious)

Cheers dada, again crossed burdwan some days ago.

Slightly modifying Anunoy's comments, to make a video of their product, wouldnt u send the product first ?

Making a purchase mandatory is quite against the rules set by any contest of IB. Hope admins look into it.

 

Anunoy Samanta
from Bardhaman

Look Karthik, "Making a purchase mandatory is quite against the rules set by any contest of IB" is not technically right because every contest has its set of T&Cs which one accepts while submitting his post for the same. So, it's not violation of any rule as such, but, more like setting unfavorable trends for bloggers in blogosphere... and there lies my agony. [Sigh... I'm talking too much of trends of late!]

Story bhi aur video bhi, keval story chahiye to bolo.

Judging by the requirements over here, sponsors are expecting professional looking video testimonial/ad potentially for free. YZaDEKQ.png 

 

Lets think about  it: Has to be in landscape (okay, fair enough), video output should be well lit (err...okay), video output is to be stable, not shaky (not sure how that would be possible since most people will be using the camera on their mobile phones), proper grammar (okay...), dead air should be edited out (wut?). and the other two points. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Assuming they want in such a level of professional exposure, monetary compensation should be there for those who fulfill all the above mentions. Also, will these videos (irrespective of the winners or not) be used in advertisements? I am all up for vlogging, but not everyone can have brightly lit indoor setups or no shaky videos. The sponsors have to be realistic and Indiblogger should ease up on the rules for the benefit of long term to encourage more and more people to be vloggers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some of these rules should be relaxed. That too the sponsors expect people to buy the stuff. Its not healthy to see a particular blog post to look like an artificially scripted videos and even embedding the ad playlist. I know nobody is forcing, but how would one expect to encourage vloggers when such rules are there to prevent the general blogging public from participating. 

Nandini Deka

Yea even those shud be compensated who want to take part but cannot because they can't produce a kid at such short noticeFoot in mouth

These video rules are a copy paste from the colgate's valentine happy hour. :P There were many videos which didn't follow the rules but still got the vouchers...

Nandhini Chandrasekaran

That was close-up HH Tongue out

Nandhini Chandrasekaran

Assuming there wouldn't be more than 100 entries, (all) contestants will be compensated with a lego set. Yet, it would have been better if they had sent at least a 50 g product for registered members like the pasta one. May be instead of the lego set, to avoid the mandatory purchase thing.

Topic seems interesting.. no doubt about that.. buying toothpaste isn't an issue either... nor making the video...but, the problem is I am 22 and I'm not yet married... Kids to door ki baat... :( 

Anunoy Samanta

If everything else interest you, use a kid from your neighborhood... If you don't win any GV, you can gift him/her the lego set later... sounds okeish?

There isn't any age limit and honestly there isn't any technical limit on being labelled as 'kids'. Infront of our parents and old people, we'll always be kids. 

Nandini Deka

Thanks so can I make the video staring me as the kid? I have no issue buying toothpaste as I use it anyways.

champati manikanta

That's a nice idea.....Laughing

But if you want to play the role of kid, the post should come up from your parents, not you ' my dear friends
The Sorcerer

now, we can always say that the kid is independent and self-sustainable. The first living thing that crawled out of this planet's mud didn't exactly have parents too.

But TS the first child didn't brush as well if i am right
If i make the video with me as child and parent as well what chances do i have to win

The Close Up Happy Hour video had been lucky for me. I think I am going to try this one too.

But about the packs, do we need to buy all 3 or any one? Can somebody from Colgate please clarify? Renie, please help! Foot in mouth

PS: Indistatus shows that 5 people have already posted. So guys, what have you done? 1 pack or all 3?

The statement given means three packs. Rest wait for clarification to come up from colgate.
