    August 2013
    Contest: The Greatest Adventure
    Deadline: August 31st

    French author Andre Gide said, "You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore."

    Bilbo Baggins is forced to be brave when he accompanies the dwarves in pursuit of the dragon Smaug's treasure. Willow Ufgood reluctantly leaves behind his wife and children to return the human baby Elora Danan to her people. Even twenty year-old Charlie Matheson summons up the courage to leave home as she searches for her brother in a post-apocalyptic United States.

    The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
    Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
    The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
    The mold of your life is in your hands to break.


    So, this month, we want you to showcase your favorite "greatest adventure," whether it's from a TV show or movie. Show us how the character's life goes from ordinary to extraordinary as they summon up the courage to lose sight of their own shore, and break the mold of their life. Don't forget to show us the journey, the friendships, the triumphs, and the dangers, too!


    The Rules

    Specific Contest Rules
    Showcase your favorite "greatest adventure" in TV or movies
    No multi-fandom.
    Canon only. No AUs or OCs.
    Running time should be under three minutes. We suggest three to five minutes.
    The more creative, the better. Don't be afraid to take risks.
    When entering your video on the Submit page, you MUST enter "August 2013 contest submission" exactly in your vid's description.

    General Contest Rules:
    Contest submissions should be entered through the Submit page.
    All regular submissions Rules apply.
    Only one entry per vidder.
    Videos already submitted and RELEVANT can be submitted again, but we would rather see something fresh. (Please contact a CM if you wish to enter a previously-submitted video)
    Please do not use Rapidshare, Yousendit, Mediafire, or Sendspace as your only hosting place as the links tend to expire quickly.
    If you're using Youtube as your primary link, please also provide us with an alternative link. Far too often, YT is either disabled or muted by the time the contest is ready to be judged. Mediafire and zshare are just a couple of the sites out there that can be used as reliable backup links. We do realise that there have been a lot of issues with file-sharing websites recently but if you can find anywhere that you're comfortable uploading to and that is easily accessible, that would be great!
    Keep in mind that however you choose to host your video, it must be available to be watched at least until after the deadline has passed. If we can not access your video at the time of judgment it will not be considered.
    Have fun!
