Mega Brands conducts Mega Bloks Halo contest
Montreal-based toy company Mega Brands has begun a contest promotion tied to the tenth anniversary of the video game franchise Halo. Consumers can enter by creating a stop-motion animated video featuring Mega Bloks Halo toys and submitting it online at <http://halotoymation.megabloks.com> before Sept. 25. Public voting will determine 10 finalists, with the winner being selected by a judging panel. The winner and runners-up will win prizes including video production hardware and software as well as Mega Bloks collectors items. "Mega Brands and Microsoft have shared a highly successful partnership building an incredible fan base around the toy franchise over the past three years," said Andrew Sparkes, vice-president of boys brand management at Mega Brands. "This contest is such a great opportunity because it really allows us to see the love for our product shine through the creativity of our fans in their own productions."
