Hey Scorsese! I got your video contest right here!

For the first time in the history of ARGFest-o-Con, we are hosting a video contest. Here are the details, for all of those aspiring filmmakers out there:

Concept: Create a video based on an alternate reality game. Really.

(1) The video should be no more than six minutes in length. Any more and it’d be a stretch to get in.
(2) The content should be related to alternate reality gaming. This includes (but is not limited to) a depiction of an in-game development, a re-imagining of an existing video from an ARG, or a summary of a live event. Please, no documentaries. Mockumentaries are cool, though.
(3) Keep it clean — we will be featuring the videos on our web site and through our YouTube channel, and we have a few kids who may or may not want to watch.
(4) Nothing illegal in the video, please.
(5) Keep it creative! The more awesome your video, the better your chances of being shown at ARGFest!

We (the judges) will be selecting the top four entries and showing them live during the Saturday conferences at ARGFest-o-Con 2009. Before the last presentation, we will be asking those in attendance to submit a paper ballot to vote for their favorite.

The People’s Choice winner (as voted on by those in attendance) will win an ARGFest-o-Con 2009 T-Shirt and their choice of some classic ARG swag (donated by ARGNet)
The Golden ARGie award (as selected by the directing committee) will be awarded a plaque and a selection of ARG swag (donated by ARGNet)

Deadline for entries: July 10th, 2009.

How to submit (do one of these, not all three):
(a) Upload your video to one of many free video streaming services (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) and point us to the link.
(b) Contact us to gain access to a special FTP upload area.
(c) Send a copy of the video on CD, DVD or flash drive to:
