Memo from the contest chair:

Happy Holidays everyone!

If the holidays are here, it means that contest season is not far behind.

We will be posting the rules shortly after I make a few minor tweaks to them.

I am currently in the process of getting all the folders and score sheets prepared for your entries, so a little later in December, we will update the rules with all the links you need to begin submissions.

However, I wanted to take a moment to let you know about the most significant change and it comes in the short video category. In years past, a short video would be fewer than 2 minutes in length. This year, any video 5 minutes or fewer will qualify. That also means that long videos will now be considered anything longer than 5 minutes.

One other thing we will be asking of you this year is to include the Twitter handles of all people whose work has been entered. This will be included on your entry key.

In years past, the officers have had to track that information down, and as you can imagine, trying to do it for every entry can get more than a little tedious, so your help in this area will be appreciated.

Contest mandatory date reminders:

First daily is the week of June 9. First Sunday is Jan. 29.

Second set of mandatories to be drawn on Dec. 31.

Good luck this year,
