Chiquita Brands Launches Chiquita^TM Banana Sticker Design Contest
CINCINNATI -- June 22, 2010
If you ever wanted to get your artwork in the hands of millions, here’s your chance to personalize the famous blue Chiquita sticker that has adorned countless numbers of the world’s bananas for nearly 50 years. Beginning June 21, 2010, Chiquita Brands is inviting consumers to visit www.EatAChiquita.com^TM and put their own spin on the company’s iconic brand image as part of the Chiquita Banana Sticker Design Contest. Eighteen participants will be awarded the ultimate satisfaction and recognition of personalizing an old classic, and having their winning design featured on millions of Chiquita® bananas nationwide.
Chiquita has taken a rather unique approach when it comes to their beloved logo – one that is collaborative and more accessible to fans than ever. “We created the Chiquita Banana Sticker Design Contest to encourage consumers to interact with the Chiquita brand and make the brand their own,” said Judy Chen, Corporate Marketing Group Leader at Chiquita. For the first time ever, Chiquita is giving consumers the opportunity to create their own sticker design based on the iconic blue Chiquita sticker or vote for their favorite design by visiting the Silver Addy Award-winning www.EatAChiquita.com website. “It’s a fun way for consumers to engage with the brand through self-expression.”
