The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod launches “The POSITIVELY DIFFERENT Video Contest”

90 days…$900 prizes…9 winners…all to celebrate 90 years!

Do you love Cape Cod? Are you a budding director or just a video tinkerer? Could you use an additional $900?

If you answered “yes, yes and yes”, you’ll want to be part of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod’s “POSITIVELY DIFFERENT Home Video Contest”. In celebration of the bank’s milestone 90th anniversary, the bank is launching a new home video contest this week, which will run for ninety days.

Entrants are invited to submit ninety-second, creative videos showcasing what they think makes the Cape “positively different”. Be creative, have fun and spotlight what makes the Cape special to YOU! Videos will be judged by a panel of local filmmakers and industry professionals, who will narrow the field to twenty finalists. The nine winners will then be chosen based on community voting. Each of the nine winners will receive $900! Entries will be accepted through December 31, 2011.

Videos can be uploaded at www.mycapecodcontest.com and will be viewable on the bank’s website and on YouTube. Rules, regulations, and more details can also be found on the site.

“We’re a community bank that has been fortunate to be part of the fabric of Cape Cod for nine decades,” said John Fulone, Chief Marketing Office of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. “We treasure being a part of this very special place and know that our customers do, as well. We’re not just celebrating our anniversary, we’re celebrating Cape Cod and all of those unique little things that make it special…and positively different! And we can’t wait to see the creativity and unique perspectives of Cape Codders through their videos.”

The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod kicked off its 90th Anniversary Celebrations last month with the unveiling of a new name, new tagline, new logo and a series of special events to mark the anniversary. Significant renovation plans were also unveiled for the bank’s East Dennis and Yarmouth Port branches, which will be complete by next summer.
