SECAUCUS, NJ (August 10, 2009) – To inspire existing community members and engage new ones on its growing social networking site,, Panasonic announced today the End of Summer Celebration, a month-long weekly giveaway, ending Labor Day, marking memorable summer moments through online photo and video sharing. First-time users are automatically entered into the sweepstakes by visiting, joining the community, and submitting their favorite summer photos or videos that meet the weekly theme. Entrants can also include a caption that provides viewers with helpful information about the content’s subject. The photos and videos uploaded to the site will spark ideas for summer weddings, vacations and foods, while giving members the chance to win their choice of either the critically acclaimed LUMIX DMC-GH1 digital camera or a 50-inch VIERA G10 Series Plasma TV.

Each photo or video submission will help build an engaging and interactive community resource for ideas and conversations about four common summer themes:

(Week 1) Weddings: Between the creative cakes, colorful flowers, beautiful dresses, and exotic venues, weddings can be a work of art. Submit your favorite photos or videos from your own big day or someone else’s to inspire brides and grooms to be. Don’t forget to include an informational caption so other couples can benefit from your experience.

(Week 2) Great American Roadtrip: With wallets feeling tight all around, many people traded flights to far off-places for an old-fashioned Route-66 road trip this summer. Share favorite U.S. landscape shots you took while on the road and tell us where to go for that picture-perfect view. Also during this week, look for a Webinar on ideas for capturing great landscape photos.

(Week 3) Vacations for Two: From a quiet beach to a cabana hideaway, we want to know the coziest places you’ve vacationed this summer – just the two of you. Share a photo or video to fill us in on some insider secrets or travel tips so others can enjoy a getaway of their own.

(Week 4) Food Creations: There’s nothing better than a delicious barbecue or afternoon picnic under the summer sun. Show us the gourmet treats you’ve been enjoying that will make us want to light up the grill or get back into the kitchen! If you’d like to share family secrets, include your recipe as a blog post or cite your favorite cookbook in the caption of the photo or video so we can taste your creations. is a social networking site designed to demystify High Definition and “unconfuse” the consumer.
