Turn on Canada with the Canada Media Fund - Enter for a Chance to Win a VIP
Weekend at the Prix Gémeaux

TORONTO, Aug. 10 /CNW/ - The Canada Media Fund (CMF) today announced a contest for a chance to win a VIP weekend for two to Montréal, including transportation, two nights' accommodation, and tickets to the 2010 Prix Gémeaux gala. Visitors to the contest website, href="http://www.turnoncanada.ca/">www.turnoncanada.ca, will make the connection between the Gémeaux-nominated shows they love to watch and the funding agency that supports their creation.

In one game, hints related to a television program are provided and players must select the correct show from a list of CMF-funded shows. In another game, players will test their memory as they locate pairs of matching images of CMF-funded shows and matching icons for a variety of media platforms supported by the CMF.

Contest entrants will also learn that the CMF:

  • champions the creation of Canadian television and digital media content with $351 million in funding this year;
  • funds the production of their favourite drama, documentary, kids, and variety and performing arts shows;
  • ensures they can interact with their favourite shows on TV, online, and on the go;
  • supports the future of content and content delivery in Canada by funding experimental projects;
  • supported the production of 81 shows that are nominated for Prix Gémeaux awards this year; and
  • was created by Canada's cable and satellite service distributors and the Government of Canada.
