VIDEO Competition RULES & ELIGIBILITY

Entry Fees

The fee to enter the VIDEO Competition is $20.  For each entry you submit, a $20 entry fee must be paid or the entry will be automatically disqualified. (VOID where prohibited by law). You may be asking why is there is an entry fee? Two reasons. One: to encourage only serious submissions and two: because it takes time and effort and woman power to accept, reply to and coordinate an effort of this size.  WE would love to do it for FREE and in the future should we get major sponsorships, we will definitely consider it.

For now we have kept the entry fee low in order to encourage individuals and businesses of all sizes to enter and to keep it affordable.

All Entries Must:
• Meet all eligibility and deadline requirements
• Conform to defined submission requirements
• Include entry fee
• Conform to all copyright laws
• Be submitted digitally (via email)
Deadline for submission October 5, 2009
