The “open source” copywriting site AdCandy, which launched in June, is turning its attention to Coca-Cola. In an unsolicited bid to provide new ideas for the mega-brand, which has reportedly been gathering ideas from several agencies this summer, AdCandy is running a contest with cash prizes to entice would-be copywriters to submit ideas to help Coke. Of course, Coke is already doing quite well on its own — see its new Coca-Cola M5 initiative, for example. At any rate, if you think you can help Coke come up with a new concept, slogan, product idea, or just about anything else, head on over to AdCandy and give it your best shot.
