i think we should have a system where everyone can vote and the top 5 we have some judges check through?

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.


Yea, we'll need some people to organize all the entrees together then.
And then one person posts all the entrees after a certain deadline into one post with a poll.

People vote. Done. Easy stuff.

Except, we need some prizes/reward from VCP and staff to get this contest running.
Or we can just start setting it up ourselves for the hell of it.

Any good photoshopping people in here? You can make sort of a VCP banner that the winner can put in their signature that they won or something like that. Thats if we don't have prizes tho. *fingers crossed*

thats looking good. but people will copy them and put in their own signatures. i think VCP should make a new group like the moderators group and then add each winner into it. then people cant copy the symbol abnd add to their own signature.

besides VCP doesnt suport images in signatures.

there is a way to put them into where the member info is (on the right hand side of post)
and only mod/admins can do that

that would work... i think an admin or mod should make the post tho and put it in the announce tab.

Edit: or they could make a new catagory for it where people can post their submissions... cuz i think they will get like atleast 50 videos for each contest. it will keep everything a little more organized.

Notice how no admin or mod have said "ok, lets do this"? And already you guys are all planning this out? :p Way to go making things easier for VC^^

At this speed, Andrew soon gets the message "we have taken over the control of this forum, go back to bed".

BUT! I really like the idea.. Just don't have animation on the Stars :p And maybe demand a post from Andrew about this subject... GO GO GO!

Yea all great ideas. Someone send a message to a mod/admin pronto.

I actually don't mind a little animation in the pics. Makes it more eye catching.

I was just thinking the same idea!

And for the actual contest I though, designing a flash header for the website would be fun.
Make a tribute to VCP, render it as flash and the one who has the best tribute gets to have his/her tribute in the header of the website for a couple of days.

Wadda'ya think?

I can't wait for the contest to be implemented..
a theme I'd love to see is supplying a good footage like speekbreaker's where every1 starts from to create whatever they want..
You can supply a max file with the tracked data.. I could help to supply a Maya/AE versions of the tracked camera..

maybe not in the first few contests.. but it would be cool if you offer stuff like Tshirts and/or dvds as prizes in return for the right to use the material for promotional purposes

That sound like a good idea to me! I think a contest is a great opportunity to show that it's much more fun to try something out than waiting for a tutorial.

the first price should be a VC Star you can sew on your swimming trunks :D

hehe ^^

well what about puting them into different groups and then vote if we are gonna use that type of vote system? cuz chosing 1 out of 50 vids can be a little messy. then you go to round 2 and so on?

:idea: i have an idea... :idea:

A contest could be "Best Logo Animation"

First: We all come up with a logo...(it has to be fake so there is no copyright issues)
Second: We vote on the one to use...(a Moderator could chose it instead, doesn't matter to me)
Third: We all have a week to try and make the "Best Logo Animation"...
Finally: The winner is chosen...(and then they get the swim suit patch :D )

Well....?

not a bad idea.. but I'd rather we use our own logos.. and a mod can provide one for those who don't have logos..
that way we could always use it later

As far as voting goes, why put it up in front of the staff to decide? That just creates more work for them to do outside of their busy lives. I think we should just make a thread with a poll in it. The one with the most votes wins.

To designate who's won before, we should probably do that group thing -- winners go in their special member group. I also would like to see who won with what. So, for example, in their member info to the right of every post we can put a link to their winning entry. Just a simple text link.

Another idea is, when the winner is chosen then the winner gets to make the new thread for the new theme so they get to pick the theme that the videos have to be modeled around.

just my two cents :D

I'm totally up for this!
