CBS Radio partners with 1-800 Flowers


1-800-FLOWERS.COM and CBS RIOT, a cross-platform division of CBS Corp.  bridging its local radio, internet, outdoor and television sales operations, announced a call for entries for the "Fields of the World" contest where consumers will determine the country of origin for the next addition to 1-800-FLOWERS.COM "Fields of the World" bouquet collection. 

Consumers can upload their favorite photos from their travels around the world to the contest's website, and submit a short story explaining the inspiration behind it.

All contest entrants will receive a voucher for 15% off their next purchase at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, but only 10 finalists will compete for the grand prize.  Each finalist's photo will be featured on a CBS outdoor billboard in the finalist's respective hometowns.  Then, starting October 8th the 10 finalists will be posted on the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM website so the public can vote on grand prize winner. The winner will then have their photo featured on a CBS Outdoor billboard in Times Square.  In addition, this winner will be flown to NYC for the unveiling of their billboard and attend a flower design class with expert floral designer Jane Packer, where they will learn how to bring their design to life.  The grand-prize winner will be selected 11/1.
