... it will produce an extreme sensation! And yes, that is exactly what Closeup Fire-Freeze does to your mouth when you are using it ;) So anyway, it's Thursday, which means... Winner's Announcement Day! We're happy to announce the best creators of Closeup Fire-Freeze contest that ended awhile ago. All of you have done such a great job. Well done! Here's some feedback from the judges: "The eYeka contest for Closeup Fire Freeze has resulted in some good creative content (created through engaging youth in co-creation of content for Closeup), showing how the combination of blazing warmth and cooling sensations from Closeup Fire Freeze delivers impactful cooling freshness in different manners. There have been some interesting thoughts on how the cooling and warming sensations work, and in other cases there has been a different take on the ultimate cooling that the product delivers. "   And here are the winners! *drum rolls*: First Prize of EUR 10,000 goes to Mike_Galeck (Spain) with Firefreeze Closeup "Feel the Power" "The music is fast beat while the guy is brushing his teeth and the ice frosting in the room makes viewers wonder what's going to happen next. The entry was able to effectively tell the story without the use of spoken words. Also, there is an element of drama in this film and the use of the "cat" to show surprise is a good visual tactic."
I knew eYeka because I had a conversation with someone and recommended that I should try to make a commercial. I participate in contests in general because I saw it as an opportunity to make money by doing what I love. I saw this contest on November 5 at night, and ended on November 7, the day of my birthday. I had a hunch and decided to participate in the end. I was so surprised when I found out I won! I was glad to win but did not expect to get the first prize. We are proud, and this has motivated me a lot for the next challenges. My creation process usually starts by reading the brief thoroughly, and then I will think about situations in my life where I can add my personal touch in it. There's no free lunch in life. You have to be consistent and struggle to get what you want, and moments like these are what make it worth the sacrifice. I usually work alone, but in this case, I got some help from my girlfriend, with whom I share this success. I love Nika :D This award has changed my year, and has motivated me to keep on improving. My congratulations to the other winners, hope to see you again :D
Second Prize of EUR 6,000 goes to rom1s (France) with CLOSE UP FIRE FREEZE "This is a witty film, demonstrating cooling icy sensation in the mouth (through the use of ice) and warming using the hair dryer."
I have known Eyeka on the web and it's my third contest. I participated to a Wonderbox contest and I won a box. I participate in contests when I have an idea after reading the brief. 
When I found out I won, I was abroad for my work and I thought it was a very good news to begin the year. I get inspiration from movies, commercials and videos on web. The prize is going to allow me to make other videos and to organize a big party with my actors!
Third Prize of EUR 2,000 goes to final3 (China) with Enjoy "This video is simple yet effective in showing the warming and cooling sensation in a surprisingly interesting manner."
Actually I had some other interesting ideas for this contest, but I was too busy with my work at that time. When I've finished my own work, there was only 2 days left for the contest. I really wanted to participate, so I decided to make a simple animation. I came up with this idea when I was brushing my teeth and I feel really lucky that I won the 3rd prize. Thank you very much, eYeka.
Congratulation, guys!! Closeup was really happy to see all of your submissions! And thank you everyone for taking a part in this creative challenge! :D We apologize as we are unable to show the winning entries as of now due to the confidential nature of this contest (New promotional videos that have not been broadcasted by Closeup yet). Thanks for your understanding :)
