VCP Contest!

Help with Video Copilot website and discussion

VCP Contest!

Postby G Man on 08/5/2008, 1:19 pm

:idea:
Hey Andrew, what do you think about this...

Start a new forum in the Showcase Category called "Contests", and we can post up different ideas of contests to do and then the all-mighty "Video Copilot Team" can pick one that we do for the month/week/weekend/day(whatever)...

The winner could get one of these upcoming VC Shirts, or just bragging rights in the forum...

I think it would be a big hit... 8-)

What do you guys think?

Now, all we need is to make a good system to judge all the videos that people enter in.

I'm sure Andrew and the rest of his crew have busy lives and don't want to look through all of the entrees, so maybe a system in which the people on this forum can vote for the best videos. Then the top 5 or something will be viewed by Andrew and his team and they will pick a winner.

I think it would work?
Now all we need is a programmer to set it all up. :D

That would be really cool! It would give some of us a little bit of practice.
Use Google, it will usually give you the answers you need, given you use the right search parameters.

The way I would do it would be to setup a little section of this website for users to upload videos.
From there, a subsection can be created for contests in which people registered on this site can rate video entrees (or vote).
Via a rating system like Youtube, except instead of being 5 stars it'll be:
3 Points (It rocked!)
2 Points (It was good)
1 Point (It was exceptional)

The points will be tallied up and the top 5 or Top 10 will be viewed by Andrew & his team. and they will pick a winner.

And yea, it might be a little hard for them to setup their own video section for users to upload videos to. Because for that you need a little more cash to get a couple servers up and running to store all the videos. And its alot of work to run a site, trust me.

But thats how I'd do it.

Basically if they were to do this, then the best way would probably be to run it like they did for the t-shirt comp. The only difference would be, rather than uploading designs, movies. I dont think it would be a major blow on the servers to be honest.

Yep - Andrew (and VC team) give this a green light and let's take this site to a whole new level of interactivity :? ... and maybe we can learn some kickass things along the way.

Yea! I think its really the best way to upload videos to vimeo and then embed ´em here and vote!

But I dont think it would be good to let Andrew and team decide whether it is a winner or not, because they have not much time.
I think it will be better if we vote the winner.
