Ask Any Diver Campaign Relies on Video Submissions from PADI Members

askdiver_eheader_prosite-E

The new Ask Any Diver acquisition campaign features stories from real divers sharing how they overcame their personal obstacles or preconceived notions of
scuba diving on the way to certification.

The initial portion of the campaign features print and online pieces highlighting an individual diver’s story and points potential customers to PADI
Dive Centers or Resorts or padi.com for more information. Later pieces will showcase videos featuring multiple divers relating their stories.

Do you have a diver with an inspirational story, such as one that conquered a fear of water or overcame a disability and transformed their life through
diving? This is a great chance to promote your divers and your dive center or resort – make your student i.e. wear your dive center or resort T-Shirt
if she/he wants. There’s also a chance that you’ll be featured in a global advertising campaign.

Have your diver submit two high-resolution headshot photographs and a video for consideration. Your divers should describe the obstacles they overcame and
tell how scuba diving changed their lives. Videos may be up to five minutes and in one of the following formats: .H264, .mov, .mp4, .wmv or Prores422lt.
Unfortunately, .flv or .avi files cannot be accepted.

Upload videos here.

Please note: Submitting a video does not guarantee the diver will be featured.

We are looking forward to receiving all the material.
