Audi fans have a chance to win an Audi R8 for a day by creating and posting an original music video.
Audi brought back the innovative #WantAnR8 Twitter challenge once again this year. Join us at Audi Santa Barbara as we take a look at this exciting one of a kind social media challenge. The contest was celebrated as one of the most successful Twitter campaigns in recent years and came back again with a new twist.
What It’s All About
The Audi #WantAnR8 contest gave Audi fans the chance to win their own R8 driving experience. This time, participants were challenged to prove their love for the Audi R8 by taking their own virtual turn on the Sonoma Raceway. They could then create a video featuring original Audi R8 footage and music from recording artists from around the world. The contest runs from Oct 23rd through Sunday, Nov 10th with winners announced after the close.
To participate in the contest, fans were able to visit the #WantAnR8 Tumblr page to access Audi R8 video footage and the WeVideo editor to create their own lap at the Sonoma Raceway. Multiple interfaces are available depending on the user’s skill preference and include options such as camera angles, video filters, and more to customize their experience. The piece is then placed to music that participants choose from a selection of artists. The videos are then posted to YouTube and Twitter under the hashtag #WantAnR8 for a chance to win.
The overall winners will be selected by the previous years’ winners. The winner will have the option to choose from two amazing prizes include a day with the 2014 R8 in their hometown or a weekend trip to the Audi sportscar experience in Sonoma, California.
Share the Experience
We are anxious to see what our customers here at Santa Barbara Auto Group can come up with, so go ahead and join in the fun! Videos can be searched and reviewed on Twitter and YouTube under the hashtag #WantAnR8.
This innovative social media experience began just two years ago in 2011 when a D.C. Audi fan tweeted Audi of America about how much she wanted an Audi R8. She used the now iconic #WantAnR8 hashtag in her tweet and the Audi brand took notice. She was given a brand new Audi R8 to use for the day. This launched the idea for a brand-sponsored official contest to engage Audi fans across the country from California to Virginia. The contest continues through this year, giving fans the chance to win the use of a brand new Audi R8 for a day.
