June 2013
Contest: Play Ball
Deadline: July 4th - extended!

Summer is just about here, time to get outside, get in shape, and be athletic! So for this contest, the theme is sports!

Sports can make us cheer, laugh, and cry, which is why there are so many great movies & tv shows about them! We would like to see vids about any sport you would like - or multiple sports! You can make a vid about a movie based on a true story, such as Miracle, about the 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team. Or you could make a vid featuring all your favorite movies about basketball. Gymnastics, baseball, figure-skating, etc, it's up to you to choose what sport (or sports) you want to vid.

If you're not sure about what qualifies as a sports movie, here's a list on Wiki:

We look forward to seeing your athletic side! Have fun!!!

The Rules

Specific Contest Rules
Make a video about a sports-themed movie or tv show.
Footage from actual athletic events is not allowed.
Multi-fandoms are allowed.
Canon only. No AUs or OCs.
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 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!

I actually really like this. I've actually been having a lot of ideas. I love inspirational sports movies.

Does it just have to be about ONE sport or can it be about multiple?

Could I possibly get a few days extension? The video I was going to make for the contest, I lost my vidding muse on it, and I have another idea, but it'll take me a few days to get it all together.

Sure, Tammy, the new deadline is now the 4th. If you need any more extra time, just post here and we can add a couple more days.
