Are you getting ready to participate in the Firefox Screencasts contest? It’s a great chance to use your talents and passion for Firefox to create screencast support videos for the Firefox Support (SUMO) knowledge base.
Starting the morning of May 19, 2008 (GMT-7) on Spread Firefox, we will present the top 100 most popular support articles from the SUMO knowledge base and ask YOU to create screencasts for one, two, three, or all of them! You can enter as many screencasts as you like, but only one for each article please. With 100 different articles, anyone can choose whatever article for which they would like to create a screencast. Mozilla will not be hosting the videos during this contest, so please use a third-party application like Jing to record your screencast and send us the link so we can view it.
(Ever used Jing? Here’s a great online demo. Click “Video Tour” on the front page to see how to use it…it couldn’t be easier! Just download and begin recording!)
All entries will be judged by a team who will look at the submissions and pick the best one for each of the 100 articles. That’s 100 winners!!
Judges will be evaluating each submission based on the following criteria:
- Correctness / appropriateness of content
- Quality of video production
The 100 winners will receive a unique Firefox Screencast Contest T-shirt. Only 100 will be made, so start thinking of your video now so you can get one of the t-shirts from this exclusive run.
Oh yeah, and there will also be one grand prize winner. The best entry from the 100 videos will win a grand prize, which is likely to be something you can use to take more pictures and videos. Hey, we can’t give away all the fun information just yet!
Get ready! The contest will run from May 19 through 11:59 PM June 15, 2008 (GMT-7). We want your submissions!
