2nd Annual DVC/UWOL Charity Challenge Sign Up!

Hey Everyone!

It's back again: The DV Challenge and The Under Water Over Land Challenge are teaming up for a holiday shootout!

It’s not really a competition between the two. It is a way for people in both contests to participate in one common-theme challenge while gathering as large a donation as we can for one worthy charity. That means we will vote on films from both forums’ submissions for ONE winner. The winner gets to choose which charity receives the donation. Those who submit a film as well as those who donate will judge the films. Guidelines for judging will be discussed later in the contest.

You don't have to sign up to donate, and you don't have to donate to sign up! To donate to the charity pool, simply decide how much you'd like to kick in, and PayPal it to us at softserveinc@hotmail.com. We'll promptly add your name to the donors list at the end of this post, as well as keep a running total of the charity pool.

When the winner is chosen, he or she will get to donate the entire pool, in their name, to the charity of their choice. What a great holiday gift to be able to give to those in need!

If when sending a charity donation, you could send a quick email at the same time it would be much appreciated! Send your email to thedvchallenge@gmail.com

Sign up begins right now and will remain open throughout the contest. The theme will be announced Thursday, Dec. 10. Films must be submitted by midnight, Sunday, Jan. 10, 2010. That's a full month, folks!

Maximum film length is five minutes, with an extra 15-20 seconds or so allowed for credits. The usual rules will be laid out in the theme announcement.

We had a blast last year so join the fun and sign up now!!

And of course, don't forget to check out our prize package of over $1500 in gear!
Prizes Prizes PRIZES!!!
