December 2009
Contest: The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
Deadline: January 2nd - extended

The Details:

Christmas? Already? It really snuck up on us this year!

So, with that in mind, this months contest is based around the spirit of family and giving that we share at Christmas time

We want you to make a loving, family video to a Christmas song. You can use canon families, like Claire and Aaron, or make an AU family, for example, where Charlie and Hurley are brothers. Or, you could even make an ensemble video with all our losties celebrating the holiday. They can be any sort of "family" you desire Kate and Juliet with their children perhaps? We just want to feel the family love!

You can set it off-island or on-island or both, use characters from any season/flashback/flashforward, no matter how small their role, and you can use footage of the losties in their other projects if you wish

And as for the Christmas song, you can use an old Christmas Carol, or a cover if you like, or even a modern song! Happy or angsty, as long as it's directly about Christmas it's in! This list from good ol' wiki might be able to help you out.

We will be using a Claiming System this month, TWO vidders per song, so make sure to let us know which song you'll be using!

Have fun and Merry Christmas!
