"Kia will show you the power to surprise with dynamic and exciting experiences that go beyond your expectations." -Kia brand slogan
Currently the largest generation in America, millennials are influencing culture and innovating change. They are active participants in what’s going on in the world and they’re open-minded, confident, receptive to new ideas, and self-expressive.
With an eye toward the future and a commitment to their spirited customers, Kia has built a global brand focused on these same qualities. That’s why we’re inviting all the digitally savvy and incomparably creative members of Generation-Y to show us why they love Kia.
Make us laugh, cry, say ‘wow,’ but most importantly make it something dynamic that surprises and goes beyond expectations.
Kia of Tallahassee is working in partnership with the Council on Culture & Arts (COCA), the area's local arts agency, on this video contest. COCA will assist with the management and promotion of this contest, its applicants, and the submitted and selected winning videos.
