Coronavirus in Oklahoma: Hideaway Pizza launches home film contest
In light of the coronavirus pandemic and the public health advice for families and children to stay at home, Hideaway Pizza is launching its inaugural Home Film Festival.
Fans of pizza and films are invited to write a script, grab a cell phone and get filming. Contestants should include Hideaway Pizza somehow in their video, such as using their stash of Hideaway cups, a T-shirt or a pizza box.
Hideaway Pizza will be awarding free pizza for a year and other prizes to those who enter by posting their creative videos to social media and tagging the company, according to a news release.
“We know there are plenty of people out there in need of things to keep them occupied at this time. We wanted to give them some fun things to do that they can do alone or with the others they are staying at home with so no one goes too stir crazy,” Janie Harris, marketing director, in a statement.
“We have other fun ideas we are rolling out on social media this week as well, just so people, especially with children at home, can stay busy and have fun at the same time,” Harris added.
“We are all in this together, and our guests need to know we are here for them in whatever way we can be, whether that is providing carryout service at our restaurants or giving them something entertaining and family friendly to do.”
Judging will be done by a panel of certified Pizza Experts, cinephiles and creative professionals and based on creativity and clarity of audio, message or story.
Known for having a large variety of specialty pizzas like the ATW (Around the World), The Boz and the Big Country, Hideaway Pizza was founded in Stillwater, in 1957 near the Oklahoma State University campus.
