Make Your Declaration - "I Am An Elvis Fan"
May 01, 2012
Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., along with partners Sony Music/Legacy Recordings, Fan Mosaics and ShopElvis.com, have announced a 35th anniversary promotion that gives you, the Elvis fans around the world, an opportunity to declare your “fanship” in three different ways, all originating from Elvis.com/ElvisFan
By visiting the “I am an Elvis Fan” promotion website, you can vote for your favorite Elvis songs for a new Elvis CD, upload your image into an Elvis Presley mosaic print, and order the commemorative “I am an Elvis fan” t-shirt. In addition, you will also be able to connect with other Elvis fans across the globe through social networks, which will offer unique stickers, engaging apps, and new ways for you to declare your loyalty to the king.
First, you can be part of the creation of a new CD by voting on your favorite Elvis songs May 1 through May 12. The CD, scheduled for release on July 31 by Legacy Recordings, will be titled, “I AM AN ELVIS FAN: A Collection of Elvis Songs Chosen by the Fans.” If you pre-order during the voting period at IAmAnElvisFan.com
, your name will appear in a limited-edition version of the CD (while space is available). The release will be available at ElvisTheMusic.com
and other retail outlets.
Second, you can upload your own personal photo through June 1 to be included in the officially-licensed photo mosaic of the king that will also appear on the CD cover art. The Elvis photo mosaic will be designed by Fan Mosaics and will feature a classic image of Elvis made up of thousands of his fans’ images. Once the upload period ends and the mosaic has been created, you will be able to see yourself in the larger picture of Elvis. A commemorative print of the image will be available for purchase at FanMosaics.com/Elvis
and at Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis during Elvis Week 2012.
Finally, you can purchase an “I am an Elvis Fan” t-shirt on ShopElvis.com
. The t-shirt is branded with the graphics from the promotion and you are encouraged to wear it to the Elvis Week 2012 kick-off event in Memphis on August 10, 2012, at AutoZone Park. If you aren’t able to be in Memphis for the event, you can still participate by uploading an image of yourself wearing the t-shirt in your hometown via Instagram and tagging it #ElvisFan. All of these images will be featured in an Instagram online gallery on Elvis.com/ElvisFan
later this summer.
You can celebrate the kick-off of the promotion by sharing the “I am an Elvis fan” online video which is now live on Elvis’ YouTube channe
l with the launch of the promotion. Featuring the hit song “The Wonder of You,” which has become a fan anthem, the video includes footage captured of Elvis with his passionate fans through the years.
In addition, fans will gain exclusive content and opportunities to promote themselves and their love of Elvis using the vast array of social media. New surprises throughout the summer are sure to spark excitement and flood the Web with fan-generated buzz.
