International Jugglers’ Association Video Tutorial Contest Rules

The International Jugglers' Association Video Tutorial Contest is a
contest designed to get more quality instructional juggling videos out on
the internet. Anyone can enter the contest by submitting a tutorial video
of any form of object manipulation. All members of the juggling community
are encouraged to participate. Videos submitted to the competition will
be linked to from the IJA home page, Facebook, Twitter, and rec.juggling
as they are received. Tutorial videos may be submitted through March 31,
2010. Voting will take place via a third party voting service, linked to
from the IJA home page and will happen over the four days after the
submission deadline - from the 1st to the 4th of April, 2010. There will
be prizes awarded to the top eight videos.


1.) Contest begins at 12:01 AM Pacific Standard Time on February 1, 2010
and ends at 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on March 31, 2010. Prizes will
be awarded and winners posted on the IJA website and relevant internet
forums on April 5, 2010.

2.) Any props may be used.

3.) All entries must be made specifically for this contest, and
**contestants must introduce themselves and make a reference to the
International Jugglers’ Association’s Video Tutorial Contest at the
beginning of their video.** For example – “My name is Bobby May and this
is my entry to the International Jugglers’ Association Video Tutorial
Contest. I hope you enjoy it and learn something!” While reposting an old
tutorial with the required introduction is not explicitly forbidden, it's
against the spirit of the competition and is strongly discouraged.

4.) Contestants may submit up to 3 entries. Entries can come from
individuals, groups, or clubs. In the case of groups and clubs, they will
have to share the prize if they win - only one prize will be awarded per
winning entry. Anyone may enter, no matter where they live. You do NOT
have to be an IJA member to participate in this contest.

5.) To enter, post your video on YouTube.com and then email a link to your
YouTube video to: tutorials@juggle.org. Be sure to say in your email that
you're entering the IJA Video Tutorial Contest.
The IJA reserves the right
to reject contest entries that the IJA deems inappropriate for any reason.
You are not allowed to submit someone else’s video as an entry in the
contest.

6.) Contest winners will be selected by votes cast by the public on a
third party voting service, linked to from the IJA website –
www.juggle.org . We will begin accepting votes at 12:01 AM Pacific
Standard Time on April 1, 2010, and we’ll continue accepting votes until
11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on April 4, 2010. Anyone with an internet
connection may vote.

We ask voters to judge the tutorial videos on the following criteria:
educational value, entertainment value, technical ability, creative video
presentation, and humor.

7.) There will be grand prizes for the top three tutorials, as well as
prizes for the top five runners-up. These prizes can be found listed on
the IJA website – http://www.juggle.org/youtubecontest

This is great!  It will surely increase the amount of good diabolo tutorials, which I'm always in favor of. :)

What are the chances of me filming tutorial yesterday and seeing this today. Well I'm not changing it anymore to advertise IJA. Going for more indie approach with it...

Dear Jugglers,

Voting is now officially OPEN for the IJA Youtube Video Tutorial Contest!  The link to the third party voting site is available on the IJA homepage – www.juggle.org.  You must register your email to vote, though you will NOT receive any emails from either us or the voting service (other than an email containing a confirmation link.) Voting closes at 11:59pm PST on April 3rd. Prize winners will be announced on this forum and full voting results will be published on the IJA homepage on or around April 4th.

This is a basic plurality vote, wherein you select your five favorite videos.

Please take into consideration the educational value, production value, and entertainment value of each video when voting.

There is also a brief survey attached to the ballot.  These (confidential) responses will all be read by me and a summary of results will be passed along to the other members of the Board of Directors.  As I hope this contest indicates, I’m a firm believer in the motto of the IJA – “to render service to fellow jugglers.”  I believe that the IJA can and should do more for the juggling community, and that this goal can only be achieved through open communication with IJA members and non-members alike. Your time and input is valuable and appreciated.

Also, I would like to sincerely thank all participants in this contest.  It’s been a blast seeing all of the tutorials submitted, and it’s safe to say that there are more quality tutorial videos online now as a result of your efforts.  Thanks so much, everyone, and good luck!

Happy voting,
--Thom

/Like always, if you have any questions regarding this contest (or anything else!) Feel free to drop me a line at wall – at – juggle – dot – org.

//I'd like to offer sincere apologies for a typo in the last few posts about this contest - all times mentioned should be in Pacific Standard Time (PST), not Eastern Standard Time (EST).  I regret any inconveniences caused by this error.

///Please keep this thread limited to discussion of the contest and its entries.
