Bridging Online and Offline Marketing With StickerYou

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… In an age where digital advertising is becoming increasingly important, Toronto-based startup StickerYou aims to bridge on- and offline marketing with a new service that lets anyone turn their website into a “sticker selling machine.” StickerYou lets you upload your own artwork in order to make custom stickers. You can select the images, size, and the die-cut you want for your stickers. For fans of stickers, that’s an exciting enough proposition right there.The company has just released a beta version of its Sticker Maker, which allows you to market your stickers on its website or on your own site via a widget. As with the other sticker-making services the company provides, StickerYou handles all the printing and distribution. Users can also use this to generate revenue from their artwork or logos, earning royalties on the sales of stickers they help initiate. The startup has already landed a number of major licensing deals, including one with Sony Pictures for stickers coinciding with the recent release of the Green Hornet film. But according to Joseph Puopolo, StickerYou’s VP of Marketing, the service isn’t geared to just large businesses but to anyone with a brand, logo, artwork or website. “We wanted to make it easier for sites that have unique content to have their own Sticker Maker by using our automated integration process. This will enable any brand or site’s profile to sign up for free and quickly allow their fans to express themselves uniquely via stickers.” Tags:#biz#Reviews audrey watterscenter_img 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Jury of global experts at Pune International Film Festival

first_imgThe 16th edition of the Pune International Film Festival (PIFF), to be held from January 11 to January 18, will feature a jury of global cinema experts, including Italian filmmaker Maurizio Nichetti and Polish screenwriter-director Joanna Kos-Krauze.Fourteen films have been shortlisted for the PIFF competition, while nearly 200 films will be screened at the festival. A highlight this year will be the Kapoor family handing over 23 original negatives of films produced under the R.K. Studio banner to the National Film Archive of India (NFAI) on opening day of the festival, NFAI director Prakash Magdum said at a press conference on Thursday evening.“Actor Randhir Kapoor will hand over this rich trove to be deposited in the NFAI vaults. The 23 films include blockbusters like Awaara, Sangam, Bobby and Ram Teri Ganga Maili,” Dr. Magdum said. He said these are the original negatives, the best source and ideal format for long-term preservation of films. “We are thankful to the Kapoor family for entrusting NFAI with this prestigious collection so that it can be preserved for future generations.” The NFAI had been in talks with the Kapoor family for over a month. Randhir Kapoor is said to have visited the NFAI last month to inspect the vaults and storage facilities. Tribute to Raj Kapoorfire in September last year gutted Stage 1 of R.K. Studios in Mumbai, resulting in loss of priceless memorabilia and artefacts. The film negatives, stored in another building, were not damaged.PIFF will also feature a pavilion dedicated to Raj Kapoor, where five of his works — Aag, Mera Naam Joker, Shree 420, Sangam and Bobby — will be screened, said Dr. Magdum. “There will be a discussion on these films with director Subash Ghai, and actor Rishi Kapoor is expected to attend,” he said.Filmmaker Jabbar Patel, who is the festival director, said Bobby was chosen as it went with this edition’s theme of ‘Youth’. Dr. Patel said noted filmmakers and scriptwriters like Sri Lankan filmmaker Vimukthi Jayasundara, scriptwriter Kamlesh Pandey, Mexican director Rodrigo Pla, Canadian director Mathieu Denis and Iranian actress Gelareh Abbasi would be part of the jury along with Mr. Nichetti and Ms. Kos-Krauze. In memoriam“We are also organising homage screenings in memory of actors and filmmakers who passed away recently. These include tributes to director Kundan Shah and actors Vinod Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Reema Lagoo and Shyama. There is also a section titled ‘Women’s Empowerment’, which will feature films like Bimal Roy’s Parineeta and Satyajit Ray’s Teen Kanya,” said Dr. Patel.In addition, seven Marathi films, including four unreleased ones, have been shortlisted for the PIFF competition. Since 2002 the eight-day festival has been organised by the Pune Film Foundation in collaboration with the Maharashtra government.last_img read more

India’s golden shooting spree

first_imgOmkar, Vijay bag gold; Gagan and Imran join the party too It appears India’s record of 16 shooting gold at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games will obliterated soon. On Friday, Omkar Singh and Vijay Kumar clinched gold in 10m air pistol and 25m rapid fire pistol events respectively. This was Omkar’s third gold of the Delhi games; for Vijay, it was his second.Another gold came through the men’s 50m rifle 3 position pair of Gagan Narang and Imran Hassan Khan. In the men’s trap pairs, Manavjit Singh Sandhu and Mansher Singh combined to shoot an unprecedented 197 birds, only for Australia to pip them to the gold by one bird.Add to this a bronze won by Gurpreet Singh in rapid fire, and India’s tally after Day 4 of the nine- day shooting event stands at 10 gold, seven silver and a bronze.Narang, who is targeting six gold medals, won his third in as many events, thanks to an outstanding 397/ 400 in the prone round. He then shot identical 385s in the standing and kneeling rounds, while Khan shot 395, 381 and 382 to help India break the 16- year- old Games record of 2,300 points with 2,325.In the meantime, Vijay had broken his own record of 581 by shooting 583 in qualification for rapid fire. Gurpreet shot 569 to lie third, heading into the final. Vijay then shot an excellent 204.5 to beat his final record from Melbourne as well, setting 787.5 as the new benchmark.Despite one off- target shot, Malaysia’s Amir Hasan held on for silver, ahead of a surging Gurpreet.advertisementNavy’s Omkar equalled Samaresh Jung’s qualification record of 584 in 10m air pistol to be four points clear of Singapore’s Bin Gai and then shot 97.8 in the final to finish with three gold and a silver in his four events. Gurpreet finished fifth.There was disappointment for India in women’s trap pairs as they could only finish fifth. Australia won the gold, England got the silver and Canada took bronze.But the real battle of the day was in the men’s trap pairs where Australia’s Michael Diamond and Adam Vella, touted as the best trap team in the world, took on India’s vastly experienced Manavjit and Mansher.Mansher shot a brilliant 99 while Manavjit, who had shot 23 in his first round, went perfect over the next three series to finish with 98 and help India get to 197, a Games record.Vella also finished with 98, but two- time Olympic champion Diamond made it a perfect 100/ 100 to help Australia edge ahead.After the match, Mansher paid rich tribute to Diamond’s performance.”It had to be someone like Michael to beat us because nobody else in the world manages to do what he does regularly. This is what happens in shooting – you do so well and yet lose because somebody else has had a stellar day,” Mansher told Mail Today. The shooter, backed by the National Sports Development Fund, defended his teammate Manavjit, saying his was no mean score either.”Yes he did shoot 23 in the first round but then again, he shot 75 straight thereafter. It was a heavy load to carry and he did magnificently,” Mansher said.last_img read more

10 months agoUEFA chief warns Man City risk ‘heaviest punishment’ and Champions League ban

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say UEFA chief warns Man City risk ‘heaviest punishment’ and Champions League banby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City have been warned they risk a Champions League ban by a UEFA official.UEFA’S chief financial investigator has confirmed that City could indeed be banned from the Champions League if they are found guilty of a further breach of Financial Fair Play regulations.Yves Leterme, the head of Uefa’s independent Club Financial Control Body (CFCB), has told a Belgian publication that City may now face “the heaviest punishment”.The Daily Mail says it is claimed the Abu Dhabi United Group, the holding company which owns City, directly paid £59.5m of Etihad’s annual sponsorship, with only £8m coming from the airline.UEFA and the Premier League are investigating the claims and in an interview with Sport and Strategy Leterme has said: “If it is true what has been written, there might be a serious problem. This can lead to the heaviest punishment: exclusion from the Uefa competitions.”If the information is correct, this possibly goes against truthful reporting. The financial fair play rules are based on a system of declaration, three months after the clubs have closed their accounts, they have to deposit their figures. Then we do random checks on the truthfulness of those figures. The accounts are examined and approved internally and externally.” last_img read more
