    Yahoo contest for free ads

    Not sure if anyone has caught this, but Yahoo is having a contest running until May 20, 2005 where you can win 10 million free ads across their network. (http://thinkbig.yahoo.com)

    Yeah I heard about this. You basically have to pitch them your business plan in 500 words or less. I'm sure plenty of professional writers and companies with cool unique ideas will be entering this so chances for a small guy to win are probably slim, but worth a try

    I agree with GeorgeB. to a point. It's likely that plenty of companies will get their copywriters to pitch something for them. But why would Yahoo want to let, say IBM or GM, get free advertising? I would think that Yahoo would have much more to gain by trying to pitch to small to medium sized businesses. Plus they're using Richard Branson, who isn't quite the stereotypical businessman, but rather the out-of-the-box, gimmicky creative thinker type of person, so I take that as a sign...
    At any rate, I would say that it doesn't hurt to try.
