Contest Created by Director Brett Ratner Gives Ten, Hard Working Americans the Chance to Win $100,000
(New York, NY – July 19, 2010) — Mitchum, the hardest working antiperspirant/deodorant, today announced the top ten finalists for Mitchum’s “Hardest Working Person in America” (HWPIA) campaign. Mitchum’s “Hardest Working” campaign, created by director Brett Ratner, founder of the creative content company Brett Ratner Brands (BRB), launched in May 2010 and was designed to find, highlight and reward the hardest working man or woman in the country.
“I spent the last week watching videos of extremely hard working Americans. I’m overwhelmed by the dedication and drive of the people who created their own creative and inspiring films and participated in the contest,” said Brett Ratner. “Albert Maysles’ portrayal of earnest people at the start of the contest inspired hundreds of submissions from across the country. So much hard work went into each video and we had a difficult time narrowing the field down to ten compelling finalists.”
The finalists selected include a man who is cleaning up the nation’s rivers; a U.S. Air Force Fighter pilot; an 88-year-old working mom; an elementary school custodial worker; the founder of First Response Team of America; a man helping young campers build character, respect and leadership; a blacksmith; an actor, trash-hauler, artist, silkscreener and landscaper; a construction worker and dad who moonlights as a college student; and an Army drill sergeant.
“Mitchum challenged regular people to create reality films telling their true stories of hard work, and the public responded in a strong way,” said Alan T. Ennis, CEO of Revlon, Mitchum’s parent company. “Mitchum is a brand that prides itself on working hard and these finalists has proven they do just that. Not only are they finalists, they are true Mitchum brand ambassadors. Through this contest, Mitchum and the public have the power to make a difference in someone’s life.”
Beginning today, the public can log on to mitchumhardestworking.com and vote for the “Hardest Working Person in America.” The grand prize winner of the contest will receive a $100,000 cash prize and be the subject of a short film by legendary documentarian Albert Maysles and co-filmmaker Bradley Kaplan, with a first-place winner also receiving a $20,000 cash prize. The In addition, Mitchum will also present an “Audience Award” winner with a $5,000 prize and a “golden” Mitchum trophy for the video which received the most votes in the first round of the contest.
