Just Launched: Firefox Screencasts Contest!

Get ready to participate in the Firefox Screencasts contest! This is your chance to use your talents and passion for Firefox to create screencast support videos for the Firefox Support (SUMO) knowledge base.

We have prepared a list of 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.  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!!

What are you waiting for? Go to the Firefox Screencasts contest and start sharing your knowledge!

A huge thanks goes out to Seth, Tara, and Alix for all their help in the preparations of this contest. Also thanks to the awesome SUMO team for the initial planning sessions in Toronto. Last but certainly not least, to everyone in the community who helped writing the top 100 support articles: THANK YOU!! This would not have been possible without your amazing contributions.

    You may want to update http://www.spreadfirefox.com/screencastcontest/criteria to mention FF3 RC1 instead of Beta 1.

    Hey Omnisilver, you can use any software you want for this, as long as it generates a Flash type of output (which that tool you’re linking to does!). Hmm, maybe we should make it clearer that we’re not forcing people to use Jing, we’re just recommending it as the easy tool for it?

    Yes, it could be a good idea ;-)
