Are You the Kikkoman? Show us how!

Enter Kikkoman's third annual video contest and you could win some serious cash while having a great time. This year, we're putting out a casting call to find the person who best represents "The Kikkoman"! It could be a man, it could be a woman...it could be you.

Just shoot a 60-second video that shows us how Kikkoman products make your life better and why you are, without a doubt, "The Kikkoman"! Then, submit it to www.kikkomanusa.com/homecooks/giveaway/videocontest and you could end up with a cool $5,000 or other cash prizes of $1,000 or $500.

So, what's it all about? Well, it's not a cooking or recipe contest, unless you want it to be. Just address any one or all of the topics below to convince us how YOU would make the best Kikkoman. Think America's Funniest Home Videos meets America's Got Talent and show us:

  1. Why are you the Kikkoman?
  2. Are you a better cook because of Kikkoman products?
  3. How do Kikkoman products enhance your cooking and your life?
  4. How has Kikkoman made a difference in your life?

If you're looking for some inspiration, check out the above video featuring some of last year's finalists from our "How do you Ponzu?" contest, and "Kikkin' it with Kikkoman" contest. Who knew that just a dash of Kikkoman Soy Sauce could turn a little sedan into an SUV, or ignite some wild passions?

You'll see. Just about anything goes...

Entries will be judged based on the following criteria:

  1. Overall creativity (40%)
  2. Best use of the Kikkoman product (30%)
  3. Concept and adherence to "Contest Topics" or "humor" (30%)


From Kikkoman Soy Sauce, Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce and Kikkoman Stir-Fry Sauces to Kikkoman Panko Bread Crumbs or Kikkoman Pearl® Organic Soymilk, you've got a terrific cast of characters to work with. And if you really want to maximize the possibilities, be sure to visit the product section of our website here. Whether you decide to taste, cook, animate, or give Kikkoman products an entirely different kind of role in your video, it's all about fun. So what are you waiting for? It's time for lights, camera, action!

The contest starts July 1, 2011 and runs through August 31, 2011. Click here for the Official Contest Rules and kikk your summer up a notch by showing us how YOU are the Kikkoman!
