CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Panraven ( http://www.panraven.com http://www.redjumpsuit.com http://www.myspace.com/redjumpsuit http://www.panraven.com/partner/redjumpsuit/ ), the pioneer of online storytelling, today launched the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus "Who's Your Guardian Angel?" story contest. Using the Panraven service, fans can easily mix their videos, photos, and text with photos of the band and exclusive footage from the "Your Guardian Angel" video shoot. All fan stories can be instantly embedded onto users' Facebook profiles and MySpace pages and shared with friends. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus will judge all entries fitting the "Who's Your Guardian Angel?" theme and award the authors of the two best entries a Flip Video Ultra Series camcorder, a professionally printed hardcover version of their story signed by all band members and exposure of their stories on the band's website ( ) and MySpace page ( ).

"Over the years, music fans have attended concerts, clipped magazine articles, created artwork, produced their own videos, and taken photos with their friends enjoying their favorite music together. Panraven is the perfect platform to unite all of these memories, share them with friends, and preserve them both online and in print," said Jon Michaeli, VP of Consumer Marketing at Panraven. "With this contest, we're also taking fan-to-band interaction to a new level. Using Panraven, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus fans can blend their content into a special storyboard, created by the band, to tell personalized stories about their own guardian angels. At the same time, bands and labels have the potential to generate new revenue streams, in the form of printed merchandise, digital downloads and ticket sales."

Panraven's collaboration features also make it ideal for combining user-generated and professionally produced digital content. Panraven rounds out its service with other social media tools, which allow members to display stories outside Panraven, on popular sites including Facebook and MySpace.
