A website has been created for the contest (www.esazatem.am), where the contestants are to upload their photos and videos. At the same time, all the photos must also be uploaded by the contestants on the official Facebook page of Ameriabank. All the photos and videos will undergo primary selection and experts will check their compliance with the general rules of the contest.
The contestants obtaining the biggest number of Likes on Facebook and votes of Ameriabank's employees will become winners. The authors of the best 3 photos and the best 3 videos will be awarded prizes, which will be as unexpected as the potential participants' materials are wanted to be. Moreover, the Bank will be committed to the contest slogan during the award ceremony. The participants will be free to choose their prizes.
The contest is aimed not only at popularizing but also at understanding the needs of the potential customers. The Bank expects the key participants to be people at the age ranging from 17 to 35, who strive for freedom in all spheres of life.
