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.
more like this

1st = $400
2nd = $250
3rd = $100
4th = $50
5th = $50
6th = $50
7th = $50
8th = $50

?

Also are there or are there not entry fees?

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.
good points. December is forever away and interest/longevity in the contest may be hard to sustain for that long. October/September might be better. It might get the ball rolling faster the sooner the deadline is.

For deadline i'd think end of summer, early fall would be better. Like BAKSMAK said, the buzz around the comp may fade. But with a later deadline at end of 2014 we'll probably see better entries. So there are ups and downs to both.

I think fall would be best, October is a good time. Gotta give people at least a few months for sure and it's already May. Good edits tend to take awhile and people probably need to gather gameplay as well.

edit: I also think having the deadline right in the peak of the holiday season is kind of a recipe for late/missed submissions. something to consider maybe

just the fact that the deadline is in december, doesn't mean people have to wait till then to release their tage so i don't see why holiday season will be a problem. it might be true that for some people the hype will fade if the deadline is pushed back so far but idk for me it is not really that much of a biggie. I think i would need all the time i can have given the fact that i will be editing myself and have finals as for now, so i could only work on it (or multiple) in the summer and i still kinda need to learn how to edit (i know basics, but i have no experience in angles and fx whatsoever). But 5 months might be plenty, or maybe at least just enough time for me.

Eh, not really a fan of that. I think Nv1ncible's distribution is a little more fair. I get why they're a little more split out, but with the highest videos being really close in terms of overall quality I think it would be better to have the difference between placings be a bit smaller. That and the fact that 4th-8th shouldn't have the same pay out.

I agree. I can't remember who it was, but somebody said it should be pushed up a month or 2 because 5 or 6 months is more than enough time to put a video together, especially with summer being right around the corner. I think the end of September might be good.

I really think we shouldn't change the deadline. with this much time, participants have time to get gameplay, lay out a concept and learn how to edit a decent montage, maybe even more than one.

if the interest really "fades away" because of a longer deadline, they aren't really that motivated to put something out anyway.

longer deadlines means better videos

+ it's not likely we're gonna be putting out another contest in between the end of this one and the release of h5 so why not use a lot of that time as part of the contest instead of empty nothingness.

Yea it's not a huge deal, I just think there's going to be a lot of dead time between now and the end of December.

In a sense, yes. Realistically a very high percentage of submissions aren't going to be utilizing 7months, it just gives them more time to spend doing other things as opposed to more time for editing. 5months is still a lot of time to learn how to get a bit more than the fundamentals of editing down. Certainly the practice an extra 2months would allow would be nice but I don't think it's going to make a very noticeable difference.

Like i said, it's not a huge deal. But if there are people that are suggesting it then it's at least worth considering.
