It's been a little over a week since we launched the TV for All contest, and we have already received over 25 submissions! You can check out current entries under the "Gallery" tab on the contest home page.

As you may recall, Google TV Ads' TV for All contest is everyone's chance to advertise on television. You can enter your small business' commercial in the contest for the opportunity to win $25,000 worth of free national advertising on cable channels such as CNBC, Hallmark, and Bravo using Google TV Ads.

Our panel of celebrity judges will review all entries and select finalists by mid October. The YouTube community will then vote for three winners, each of whom will receive $25,000 in free national TV advertising through Google TV Ads. The contest submission deadline is October 5, and winners will be announced on October 30.

We are excited to have assembled a distinguished group of judges including top entrepreneurs, creative agencies, and television luminaries. Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com, and Steve Hafner, CEO of Kayak will give an internet tycoon's perspective, while Jon Bond, partner at kirshenbaum bond + partners, and Neal Arthur, Head of Strategic Planning at Wieden + Kennedy will provide an expert creative eye. Noted television journalists and authors Daisy Whitney and Shelly Palmer round out our powerhouse panel.

Full guidelines, contest rules and tips and tricks are available on the TV for All YouTube contest brand channel at www.youtube.com/tvforallcontest. Check out our submissions so far, and be sure to enter today!
