500,000 hits in 50 days for www.fiat500.com
The new interactive multimedia platform created for the New Fiat 500 has reached the milestone of 500,000 hits and 5,000,000 page views after just 50 days on line. Developed and produced in close cooperation by the creative team of Leo Burnett and Arc Torino, the site targets fans of the legendary Fiat and, through its Concept Lab, has received more than 50,000 configurations, ideas for accessories and personalisations for the new model. And today some new initiatives have joined the site to enhance the “500 wants you” project.
First, “500 ciak you”, a competition for young videomakers, has begun. Participants are invited to shoot a video of up to 90 seconds that tells the story of the 500 in a personal style, with irony, optimism and light-heartedness. The video may be shot with any kind of videocamera, cell phone or other instrument, or made as a computer animation. Prizes include, 4 Samsung Ego-cam VP-X 220L videocameras of a total value of 3,000 euros.
The second initiative is “500 faces”, a game that invites visitors to interpret a detail of the 500 with a facial expression of their own choosing. Users can choose images proposed by the Fiat brand or submit, along with their interpretation, a different photo of the car that has inspired them. The most amusing photo will be chosen every 50 days. All shots chosen will go to make up an exclusive morphing screensaver.
Finally, “500 wants a mascot” has also begun. This is a competition designed to produce a mascot for the New 500. Participants can draw their inspiration from the spirit of the project “500 wants you” and try to imagine what the new car should look like. First prize is a gold ingot worth 3,000 euros.
Initiatives open to everybody, in short, in full respect for the 500 philosophy: “a car created for people, from people’s ideas”.
