[via press release from ABC]

VIEWERS AT HOME CAN WIN THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME THIS SEASON ON ABC'S "AMERICA'S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS"

AFHV 15th Season Premiere Is Sunday, September 26 on the ABC Television Network

"America's Funniest Home Videos" will begin its 15th season on the ABC Television Network with an all-new prize giveaway, joining with Walt Disney Parks & Resorts to give viewers at home a chance to win an unforgettable trip to one of Disney's magical resorts, a cruise aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship, and the opportunity to compete for the vacation of a lifetime-an around-the-world trip to visit all 11 Disney theme parks across the globe!

Three times a year, "America's Funniest Home Videos" awards $100,000 cash prizes for the best video submission. For each of the shows awarding $100,000 prizes to video contestants, viewers at home will be asked to vote for the winner via abc.com. One lucky viewer will randomly be selected in each of the three shows to win a vacation prize for their family. In November, viewers will have the chance to win a Magical Gatherings Vacation for eight people to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. In February, viewers will have the chance to win a four-night magical cruise vacation on the Disney Wonder to the Bahamas, including a stop at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. And in early May, viewers will have a chance to win a vacation to The Disneyland Resort in California, where it all began, to kick off the "Happiest Celebration on Earth"-a yearlong global blow-out celebrating a half-century of theme park magic.

When AFHV has its season finale in May, 2005, the three $100,000 prize winners will return to the show to compete for the grand prize: The trip of a lifetime to all 11 Disney theme parks around the world, including Disneyland Paris, the Tokyo Disney Resort and the newest Disney theme park in Hong Kong -- opening in late 2005 -- Hong Kong Disneyland. Voting will again take place via abc.com, and again, one lucky viewer at home will win the identical dream trip.

In its 15 seasons to date, "America's Funniest Home Videos" has given away over $7 million in prize money and evaluated more than half a million videotapes from home viewers. Viewers wishing to submit home videos to "America's Funniest Home Videos" should visit ABC's website at www.abc.com for details.

Vin Di Bona is executive producer, with Todd Thicke and Terry Moore serving as co-executive producers. "America's Funniest Home Videos," which premiered on January 14, 1990, is from Vin Di Bona Productions.
