In the past, we learned that pop culture is your forte, as shown through your total domination of our ModMobile Guess the Reference Contest. We also know you’re an educated wordsmith – you’ve proven it time and time again in our Name It and Win It Contests.
Now, it’s time to show us just how clever, cute, and innovative you are with the first-ever ModCloth Video Contest! We’re asking that you, our witty customers, create a Style Short that incorporates the ModCloth brand in a unique and personal way. Starting today, you have three weeks to create your savvy Style Short, which can be no longer than two minutes. In those two minutes, use your abundance of creativity to promote your love of ModCloth! Oh, and one more thing – we’re asking that you use stock or original music in your video, so that you have even more opportunities to get really creative. Find a cool soundtrack to your Style Short on Jamendo, opsound, or Audiofarm, or any other royalty-free music website you may come across. We also recommend the following video editing resources: YouTube Video Editor, JayCut, and Windows Movie Maker.
For inspiration, check out Emily Kathryn’s fan video from 2008. Emily’s video is just one type of example of how to approach making a ModCloth Style Stort!
The grand prize winner will receive a $500 gift certificate! Just imagine how many pairs of shoes that will buy. The second prize winner will receive the adorable Ctrl+Alt+Del Necklace by Monserat De Lucca and the cheerful Telegraph Hill Laptop Bag. The third prize winner gets the Telepgraph Hill Laptop Bag (a must for tech-savvy creative types!)
Up for the challenge? If so, follow these simple steps once your masterpiece is complete.
- Upload your ModCloth Style Short to your personal YouTube account. Please include the words “ModCloth Style Short” within your video’s title. No personal YouTube account? Signing up for one is free, fun, and totally painless!
- Post your Style Short video as a comment to Susan’s YouTube Video Contest announcement by 12:01 a.m. on August 3, 2010.
- You may submit up to three Style Short entries.
- Please note: Video uploads to the ModLife Blog will not be accepted. Additionally, please note that any videos deemed inappropriate will not be viewable as a response.
We’ll watch all of the submissions, and choose our top three videos, based on creativity, ModCloth appropriateness, and video quality. Number of YouTube views will also be a factor, so be sure to submit your video early and share your Style Short with others!
After that, we’ll post those top three shorts to ModLife. We’re asking that the chosen top three submissions provide us with a raw file version of their Style Short, in addition to the YouTube link. From there, ModReaders will have the opportunity to vote for the winner, right here on ModLife!
