Winnipeg resident winner of Global Hyundai Contest

Picks-up a 2012 Hyundai Veloster as grand prize

WINNIPEG, Jan. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Winnipegger Randy Granger took top prize in the YouTube & Hyundai Present Musical Shorts contest that saw entries developed in all areas of the globe. Granger picked-up the grand prize - a 2012 Hyundai Veloster 3-door coupe - today from Winnipeg Hyundai.

Granger, who doesn't drive, decided to enter the contest to help his mother replace a car that had broken down.

"Winnipeg is home to many creative, talented people and Mr. Granger's winning entry is more proof of that," said Guy Bordian, General Manager at Winnipeg Hyundai. "What's most touching, though, is that Mr. Granger was motivated to win the contest so he could help his family. He clearly found the inspiration he needed to achieve his goal."

Hosted online last year, the Hyundai contest asked registered YouTube users to submit a one minute and 20 second video set to an excerpt from the Mason Bates music track "Mothership". The visuals were up to the creativity of those that chose to enter the contest, provided they were an original.

A judging panel then identified 16 finalists based on the submissions' creativity, originality and how well the video exemplified the music composition. The 16 finalists were then voted on by the YouTube community. Granger's video "Let It Flow Like Domino" garnered the most votes, beating entries from countries such as the US, Russia, Australia and Brazil.
