Homewood Suites contest returns to find new faces for high-profile campaign

After the success of the Homewood Suites by Hilton Simple Moments contest last year, totaling 1,225 entries featuring photos of valued guests and their families, the international brand of upscale, extended stay hotels will invite participants to upload favorite videos too.

The Simple Moments contest allows guests and non-guests to upload photos and videos from their favorite family moments to the homewoodmoments.com site until July 18, 2008. A panel of judges will select the 20-30 entries most representative of a Homewood Suites ‘Simple Moment’ and then the top entries will be narrowed to ten finalists. On August 5, the photos and videos will be published on the Homewood Suites Simple Moments site where the general public will have until August 31 to vote on three winning photos to be the new faces for a fall advertising campaign. Winners will be announced in October and Homewood Suites will invite the three winning families to see their photos or videos live on jumbo-sized video billboards in Times Square during an all-expense paid weekend trip to New York City.

"This contest not only allows our guests to share their family experiences, but it also represents the core attributes of Homewood Suites," said Bill Duncan, vice president of brand marketing. "At Homewood, guests are treated like family, get to know other guests like family, and truly relish the simple moments they share while staying with us."
