I've just always found that if you know you're going to be competing with some of the best editors and players you know you won't win any of those prizes and might need some extra encouragement (other than the exposure) to at least get something finished.
We depend on getting donations, before even thinking about adding more prizes. Thanks for your input though, I'm glad people are taking an interest.

Just curious, why is the deadline so late? I mean December 31st in an absurdly long time from now. I'd really like to see the deadline moved up to like maybe October 31st. I mean that's basically 6 months from now, and everyone is heading into summer. If someone can't produce the video they want in roughly 6 months (including the high excess of free time during summer) then they probably shouldn't be submitting in the first place imo.

I just feel like having a deadline that far away will just cause this comp to burn out quickly and cause people to lose interest and end up not even bothering since the deadline is so far away.

What ever happened to making videos for the sake of one's own enjoyment, and finishing projects because you've got a little pride and determination? Why does there need to be a cash prize at the end of the rainbow?

and if they do? so what? some effort is better than none at all. more entries = better, even if there are some of lower quality.
the more I think about it, I guess you're right. it could be a cool idea but idk if something like that would fit in a "competition" setting. I mean, the best movies should be the ones winning. It's a tough one

like klima said though, we definitely need more people chipping in if we want to have more prizes

I'm a bit torn on the idea, I think you're right in that not a lot of people are going to just throw shit in their for the sake of winning a little prize. But some people still might. If it came down to it I don't think I'd have a problem with it being implemented.
I don't see how it would diminish the amount of quality entries. Unless you meant the quality of the montages in general, but I don't see 10 extra lower quality videos as worse than their omission.

But anyway, just an idea, thought of it in my circumstance as well as the amount of quality unfinished projects that happen after something impressive is released. In my case, I have little to zero chance to seriously compete in this competition for the top prizes or even the subprizes. I'll definitely make a video anyway since I have some clips and I like making montages and it's a cool event to be a part of, but it would be nice to have an extra incentive contest-related, I guess.

And yeah, I can probably chip in some money at the end of the summer.

This is just my personal take on prizes, but I'd much rather see the majority of the prize pool spread out with greater depth in the main competition. As in, maybe the distribution looks something like this:

1st = $300
2nd = $250
3rd = $200
4th = $150
5th = $100
7th = $50
8th = $25

I honestly don't care about the sub-categories, they seem unnecessary to me.

Why do you and others keep saying stuff like this? Why do you think you don't have a serious chance to compete? It's like you're asking for a prize handout because you're not able or willing to put in the time and effort to make something worth remembering.

I like the idea to some extent, but we can't really plan stuff like that before we get donations.

Maybe we will have to do some voting about the prizes if more people feel as you. We'll see how much donations we'll get and maybe come up with some ideas and make a poll somewhere along the line. As we said: *we retain the right to change things throughout the time period. Let's just see how it all plays out

I like that much better as well, with a larger gap between 1 and 2 and the top 3 and the rest. Although that may lower the competition for the top montage. Need a lot of donations to make stuff like this work better though.

I'll set off around 15$ each month from YouTube/Stream donations that will go into the pot of this.

I can also be a judge, if it's supported and needed. If you've got it all covered, don't worry.

Can't wait to see submissions, and hope I get to submit one or two myself!
