The contest was part of a larger integrated marketing campaign for Jones Soda and the FIAT brand to celebrate the companies’ new products, Natural Jones Soda and the all-electric Fiat 500e, which both launched exclusively in California this summer (2013). The 21-week photo contest required contestants to submit photos of the Fiat 500 model with the goal to raise awareness of each of FIAT’s and Jones’ new product lines. During the course of the contest, over 10,000 entries were submitted from throughout the United States and Canada. The winner was chosen by a panel of judges at Jones Soda and the FIAT brand. “Not only were we overwhelmed at the number of entries and buzz the photo contest generated,” stated Jones Soda CEO Jennifer Cue, “but also with the way the two brands connected with our fan bases. Whether we were working together to do corporate test drives throughout California, appearing at the Vans US Open of Surf or being able to provide new Fiat 500e owners a Limited Edition case of FIAT-branded Natural Jones Soda, we could not have been more thrilled at the response that we’ve received from this collaboration.”
