Small businesses often think that television advertising is too costly and cumbersome for them to use. They assume they need a fancy, expensive commercial to use in their TV campaign. But Google TV Ads changes all of that -- we make it easy and affordable for you to make a TV ad, plan a campaign, and reach your customers through the power of television.

We're excited to announce the Google TV Ads' TV for All contest, everyone's chance to advertise on television. 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!

We're launching the contest today in collaboration with our partner SpotMixer, a self-service video creation service which allows consumers to easily produce professional-quality videos. All you need to do is this:

1. Create a thirty or sixty second commercial for your small business -- you can make an ad on your own or use the free Spotmixer tool (it's easy!).

2. Upload your ad to the TV for All YouTube contest brand channel.

3. Vote! Once your submission is up on, our panel of celebrity judges will select the 10 finalists and the YouTube community will choose 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.

Full guidelines, contest rules and tips and tricks are available on the TV for All YouTube contest brand channel at Enter today!
