MTV, Creative Review to launch global competition on Aids impact

The winning idea will be funded by MTV and produced under the supervision of MTV Networks International senior VP creative Cristian Jofre . The spot will air across MTV?s 44 channels worldwide from 1 December 2005 - World Aids Day.



The winning entry will also be streamed on the Staying Alive website ?, which is available in 10 languages. In addition, MTV will offer the spot rights-free, at no cost to all broadcasters worldwide to get critical HIV prevention messages out to the widest audience possible.

Creative Review will highlight the partnership in several issues over the coming months with a follow up profile of the winning creator/producer in December. The winning spot will also be included on a special Creative Review DVD in January.
