Although user generated content contests are becoming increasingly common, Doritos is offering one of the biggest prizes for that kind of competition in Australia.

The finalists process is relatively complicated. At the end of the competition, Doritos’ panel of judges will select nine finalists from all of the video entries. A tenth will be selected from all of the weekly “wildcard winners” based on the number of votes from the public on YouTube. This list will then be culled to three finalists and put to a public vote which concludes in September.

The campaign, fronted by Nova presenter Merrick Watts, is being run by Clemenger BBDO Sydney.

The two videos above are the first of the weekly wildcard winners.
