ESU Video Contest - Win an iPad - Let's go for an IDT sweep of all four categories!
Want a chance to win an iPad while having fun showing off your Emporia State spirit? ESU's marketing director is coordinating a video contest for contestants to express "What 'Empowered by E' (Empowered by Emporia State) Means to Me."
There will be four categories: students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Individuals will be awarded an Apple iPad to the winner in each category. No more than four iPads will be awarded. Team winners will get restaurant gift certificates.
Submissions will be accepted until February 4, 2011. The winner will be decided by February 11, 2011, at 4 p.m. CST. No more votes will be counted after that time. Marketing and Media Relations will accept submissions immediately.
How does this work?
The final five selections from each category will be placed on ESU's Facebook where the winner will be decided by the number of "likes" it has received. (Watch this page or buzz-in announcement on Dec 04, 2010 for Facebook URL). In the case of a tie, the Director of Marketing and Media Relations working with a student group will decide on the Best in Show video. The winning Best in Show video will be placed on the homepage of ESU's website by the end of February.
2 Minute Rule: Your movie may be two minutes long or less. We are using the common timecode standard, so your movie's length must be equal or less than 02:00:00. This limit includes credits and anything else, which might be included in your final exported file.
