Launches “Wanna Be A Hollywood Diva” Contest Around The World
Hollywood, FL, September 27, 2004 - Concord Camera Corp. (“Concord”), a leader in award-winning, high-quality, affordably-priced digital cameras, today unveiled the limited DVx “Diva Edition”, a 6-in-1 multi-multimedia digital video camera bejeweled with glamorous Swarovski crystals. The DVx takes digital photos, video clips, is a MP3 player, voice recorder and has a nifty little flashlight for night time shots – all in a tiny 3 ounce pocket-sized device. This limited edition of the ultra compact DVx will be awarded as part of Concord’s “Wanna-be a Hollywood Diva” promotion, where contestants can enter to win a trip to Hollywood, Swarovski crystallized faceplates for the DVx, as well as hundreds of other camera prizes. The “Wanna-be a Hollywood Diva” Contest is open to anyone 18 years or older, and no purchase is necessary to enter to win. Concord will be on “Diva Patrol” starting November 2004 through February 14th 2005. The grand prize winner will be crowned the “Ultimate Hollywood Diva Wanna-Be” on Sunday, March 27th, coinciding with when the real Hollywood divas will be walking the red carpet for the years biggest awards ceremony – the “Oscars”.
Ultra slim and stylish with dimensions of only 4.1” x 0.6” x 2.4” (62 x 16 x 103 mm), the DVx will be available in two cool colors - white and charcoal gray. One of the first digital video cameras with a removable face plate, the DVx enables the user to custom decorate the face plate if they so desire, as is the current fashion craze in cell phones that typically have this feature.
As seen in TV shows and movies like “Sex and the City” and “Legally Blonde,” crystallized electronics are the hottest “Bling-Bling” craze among young Hollywood movie stars today. The DVx digital video camera is cool enough for a movie star and is the must-have gadget of the season for everyone.
