Amazon.com has announced the winner of its "Your Amazon Ad Contest" its first national competition for the best customer-created television commercial.

Angela Kohler, of Los Angles, was voted the winner by the company as well as Amazon customers. Kohler will receive $20,000 in Amazon gift cards along with a trip for two to the 15th Annual Gen Art Film Festival in New York City next April where her commercial will be screened.

"We were extremely pleased with the level of creativity of all of our customers in this competition, but especially so with Angela Kohler’s ‘Kindlicious,’" said Steve Shure, vice president of global marketing.

"We anticipated great submissions because we know our customers to be very creative and passionate. Kohler’s entry was an example of how our customers tend to exceed even our highest expectations."

Kohler has been a photographer for the past eight years. The "Kindlicious" video is a stop-motion animation and film production. Kohler and her boyfriend Ithyle Griffiths teamed up with friends Sharon Williams, Rachel DeSimone and Annie Little. They spent seven hours moving the scene to compile 300 frames. After it was finished, Griffiths wrote the music and Little wrote the lyrics.

Runners-up in order of customer ranking are as follows:

Second Place - Gary E. Irwin, Philadelphia, Pa., for "Wish List"
Third Place - Dian Sananikone, Marietta, Ga., for "Proceed to a Better Life"
Fourth Place - David Keenan, Hacienda Heights, Calif., for "Not Available"
Fifth Place - Andy Basore, Brooklyn, N.Y., for "Paper Amazon"

    That was a very cool commercial! And the fact that the song was written for the video really sends it home. The tune sorta reminds me of a lighter Dresdon Dolls. Clearly, they deserved the first place.

    I am a single mom and lost my job about 6 months ago due to a down sizing. I was desperately trying to find work and accidently ran across free paid surveys. I thought why not try it well to my suprise I made almost $2000 dollars last month doing surveys from home and I didnt have to spend a dime up front.

    This has saved my house from bankruptcy and I wanted to share this story so that others with the same plight might do the same thing.You can work from home and make a living it does take a while to get up to $2000 a month. I made about $500 my first month and this is month 3.

    This is a free paid survey opportunity with no money or credit card needed.I have detailed exactly how I did this on my webpage here http://www.surveymoney.x10hosting.com you may have to copy and paste that but check it out I detail exactly how to this for free.
