RESTON, VA., October 1, 2009 — Calling all budding filmmakers, established cinematographers or anyone with a video camera and a desire to win some cold, hard cash!
To celebrate another year as the internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phones, Wirefly (www.wirefly.com) today announces the Wirefly Video Challenge (www.wireflycontest.com/wirefly-commercial/).
The contest, co-sponsored by wireless manufacturer LG, invites anyone and everyone to write, film and star in a short video that communicates to the world what makes Wirefly America’s trusted source for cell phones.
