NIGHTWISH: Videocontest – we have a winner!  - 2012-04-19

2012-04-19 - Two month ago, Nuclear Blast Records started a videocontest for the second NIGHTWISH single „The Crow, The Owl And The Dove“ - out of their top seller „Imaginaerum“.
About 200 creative fans uploaded their unique creations up on YouTube – and the results were simply unbelievable! The band members, their management and label were totally flashed by the different clips, the great ideas and the amazing results any participant showed. Tuomas Holopainen comments: „We were overwhelmed about the effort people had put into making these videos, wow! This truly caught us by surprise. Wonderful job everyone!“
It wasn’t easy tho choose a winner, as everyone would have deserved a price!
Anyway, the whole band, members of their Management KingFoo and their label Nuclear Blast have decided. The winner is Pedro José Antunes Hipólito Calvo from Portugal!
His beautiful clip simply touched our heart. „The winner has a beautiful thought behind the video and is truly sympathetic and touching in its naivety“, says Tuomas Holopainen.
Pedro will receive a special award, free access to any NIGHTWISH concerts on this tour, a meet and greet with the band and lots of merchandise items.
The 2nd price goes to: Daniel McCarthy from England
The 3rd price goes to: Wolfgang Stefan Jungwirth from Austria
And since we were all so impressed, Nuclear Blast decided to also add more prices for a 4th and 5th place:
The 4th price goes to: Jennifer Klug from Canada
The 5th price goes to: Elizabeth Cooper from Australia
