Tell Nissan Canada What Innovation Means To You

nissanNissan Canada wants to know in 140 characters or less what innovation means to you. With the Nissan Innovation Contest the car maker is open to creative and interesting ideas that can shift the Nissan brand into the next level.  With technology being the key to all Nissan vehicles, they want to reach out to those with the same passions as them.  Here is a brief summary of contest:
Contest Phase 1 – Fans will be asked to create a post in 140 characters or less and post it on the contest page.

Contest Phase 2 – We will then select and ask those who created attention grabbing posts to then create a brief video that embodies their post. The videos will be reviewed and the top 5 will be flown to Toronto to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges.Nissan Innovation

Contest Phase 3 – The finalists’ videos will be judged by the community and a panel of industry experts and a winner will be selected. That winner will receive a Nissan vehicle of their choice (not including the GT-R or NV) and have their idea brought to life in a Nissan commercial.

This is the perfect opportunity to bring your vision of the perfect vehicle to life. The possibilities are relatively endless, though with the cold Canadian climate you may have to wait on creating Nissan’s first aquatic vehicle.
