June 2012
Contest: Have We Met?
Deadline: July 3rd - extended!

Every show has a star or two, characters that everyone knows all about & loves (or hates!). Then there are the others, who are not as famous but are still part of what makes the show or movie great. That is who we want to see videos about this month, the lesser-known characters!

However, you are not limited to using a minor character in a major show, like Nikki from Lost. You may choose a main character from a show that is not well-known, such as Toby from The Listener. It's up to you to decide who counts as a lesser-known character. Just keep in mind what we are looking for, so if you submit a Vampire Diaries video about Damon, it's not likely that your video would place.


The Rules

Specific Contest Rules:
- Make a video featuring a character that is not well-known.
- Canon only. No AU's, OC's, or crossovers.
- Running time should be under five minutes. We suggest the 3 - 5 minute range.
- The more creative, the better. Don't be afraid to take risks.
- When entering your video on the Submit page, you MUST enter "June 2012 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 or Yousendit as your only hosting place.
- 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!

If it's okay to submit a vid that is slightly AU, I'd like to submit my Bela Talbot [SPN] vid called "Cheap and Evil Girl" into this contest.

Thanks, mods!

Edited To Add: I just submitted this vid, but I actually placed a "warning" when there really isn't one. Can a mod remove it or should I resubmit?

Hi!

I went ahead and removed the warning for you. We'll get back to you on the contest portion of your question.

PsychoCynic, since the rules state "no AUs" and your Bela vid is slightly AU-ish, it doesn't qualify for this contest. If you have another non-AU vid that meets the rules and you would like to submit, just let us know.

I see. Thanks for the info, Julia.

I do have another vid, entitled "A Beautiful Lie". This is a vid about the main character of the show, Ringer. However, I personally feel that Ringer was not a very well-known show.

If I'm mistaken, then I'd like to submit "in all this turmoil", a character study about Rose from The Vampire Diaries.

I hope that's clear. I appreciate all your help, Julia and fellow mods.

Hi!

My personal suggestion would be to go with the Rose vid, if your'e okay with that. I think of the two she is definitely the lesser known.

Let me know if you're okay with that one and I'll go ahead and set that up for you.

The video I want to submit is only about 20 seconds long. Is that too short?

Hi Julia. Sorry for the long delay in replying.

I would really appreciate it if you submitted the Rose/TVD vid into the contest.

Thanks so much!

Hi ya'll

I'm trying to submit a new video but it keeps saying I have special characters in the description field, only there isn't any. I'm only using punctuation and not even exclamation points or question marks. Does anyone know what's the go with that?

Thanks

Hi!

If you don't mind, could you send me a PM with the exact info you are entering? I can take a look and see if I can tell what the site is having a problem with.
