music video contest

for Dayton, Ohio bands/artists!

Entry submission period: June 10th, 2020 – July 17th, 2020

Contest: FREE Music Video Production!

ruef Design, a Dayton, OH-area digital marketing agency, is offering to produce, film, and edit a music video for a local artist for FREE. That’s right, absolutely free.

Dayton is full of talent. As a creative agency, we know it first-hand: We are made up of passionate artists and designers and musicians, and we want to help promote local art and music! We think now more than ever we need positivity and creativity to thrive.

We want to extend our video production services to one local musician/group who has recorded music recently and wants to make a music video for the next hit single from Dayton!

While we specialize in technical communications and marketing for business-to-business buyers in manufacturing, engineering, and industrial spaces, we have created music videos for high-profile artists and bands in Dayton.

We want to use our talents to help share your talent.
