ANIME NETWORK LAUNCHES "DEMAND YOUR ANIME" SWEEPSTAKES AT ANIME EXPO
A 2004 HONDA CIVIC Si IS GRAND PRIZE; WEEKLY PRIZES UNTIL DECEMBER 4,
2003 END OF SWEEPSTAKES
Anime Network, the first cable channel in North America dedicated to
anime (Japanese animation), today announced the launch of the "DEMAND
YOUR ANIME" sweepstakes. The sweepstakes gives those who sign up to
contact their cable providers and Demand Their Anime the chance to win loads
of cool prizes, with the grand prize a 2004 Honda Civic Si.
Participants need only to visit the Anime Network website
(www.theanimenetwork.com) and sign up to Demand Their Anime! At
Anime Expo (going on right now in Anaheim, California), networked
terminals and hard-copy entry forms are available at the A.D. Vision, Inc.
booth (Anime Expo #607); entries will be collected through December 4,
2003, with prize drawings afterward, and all winners announced on
December 18, 2003. Anime Expo attendees will have the chance to check out the
grand prize as well: a gleaming new Civic Si is also attending Anime
Expo. The sweepstakes bandwagon (and the sporty three-door) will also be
attending San Diego Comic-Con, Otakon and other select conventions
around the country, with ample opportunities to register to win!
This Contest actually happened before there was even a forum. I noticed these stickers on some older ADV DVD's I got a while back for entering to win a 2004 Honda Civic Si and have been curious ever since. I believe the winner was the one who pushed the button during the VOD launch event in 2004. I'm guessing those pictures from the 2004 site are of that ,but the wayback archive can't access them. I think almost all of the people who would know are gone from The Anime Network staff.
