Charley posted a topic in Assignments ArchiveRules What Is This? The Skate Perception King of The Road (SPKOTR) contest is a yearly event hosted by various users of the Skate Perception internet forum that begins on Go Skateboarding Day, June 21st and concludes on the 21st of the following month. The contest consists of various teams completing challenges from a designated task list, filming them, and editing a video of the tasks being completed before the contest deadline. To be eligible, each team is to pay an entry fee of a $5.00USD donation before the submission of their video and before the contest deadline. post your video in the designated entry thread before July 21st, 2013 at or before 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time (EST). How and What Do The Teams Win? A monetary prize consisting of the total amount of donated entry fees will be given to a winning team decided upon by a vote. Voting will be judged on a combination of the best filming, editing, and overall entertainment of the entries. The amount of points earned is not completely relevant to win the monetary prize so a focus on the production of the edit is key when voting. A prize package consisting of items that are to be announced during the contest period (June 21st, 2013 to July 21st, 2013 at 11:59PM EST) will go to the team with the most points. If enough prizes are accumulated by the end of the contest period, prizes may be awarded to the 2nd and 3rd place teams based on total points accumulated. Bragging rights and eternal internet fame will go to the team with the most points. The winning person's video will also be featured on various Facebook pages that have 10,000+ likes further adding to the bragging rights and eternal internet fame. Payment Info To make a payment donation for entry into send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your Skate Perception username and text in the subject line indicating you’d like to make a SPKOTR entry payment. An email reply will be sent with instructions on how to pay the entry via PayPal. SPKOTR@GMAIL.COM IS NOT THE PAYPAL ADDRESS FOR SENDING ENTRY MONEY SO DON’T SEND MONEY TO IT. YOU MAY NOT GET THE MONEY BACK AND IT WON’T COUNT AS AN ENTRY FEE. If you don’t have access to a PayPal account and none of your other team members have access to one, try harder to find someone with a PayPal account you can use. General Rules • Payment must be received before the submission of their video and before the contest deadline. • Teams can have up to 8 people total including filmer(s). • Entries must be at least 4 minutes in length with no set maximum time limit. • Entries must have at least 25 tasks completed. • Entries must have some sort of graphic representation of the team members names (like, title cards for an intro) and text of the tasks with the amount of points each task is worth as they are completed. It can be a simple text layer or a full-blown motion graphic. • Entries must have a graphic for the total amount of points earned at the end of the edit. A team saying they have more points than actually earned will result in team disqualification which includes forfeiture of their entry fee donation. • Entries must use footage shot during the contest period. Old footage will result in disqualification and humiliation. • Videos must be uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or both and linked in the entry publically prior to the contest deadline. Any blocking locally or globally due to copyrighted content used in an entry is not grounds for reuploading after the deadline. (For example: if an edit contains a copyrighted song and is blocked globally minus one country, you will not be able to reupload it with another song to remove that blocking and your video will only be able to be watched and voted on by people in that one country.) • The contest starts on June 21st, 2013 and ends on July 21st, 2013 at 11:59PM EST. This is an entire month to film and edit and the deadline WILL NOT BE EXTENDED. This is plenty of time. • Entries are to be posted in a designated thread on the Skate Perception forums that will be live during the final week of the contest. ENTRIES MUST BE POSTED AT OR BEFORE JULY 21st, 2013 AT 11:59PM EST AS PER THE SKATE PERCEPTION SERVER TIME. Don't be mad that you thought you posted it before midnight on July 22nd because your bedroom alarm clock was 5 minutes fast. • Voting will occur in it's own thread and will begin July 22nd at 12:00AM EST and end July 28th at 11:59PM EST. Rules for voting will be outlined in the voting thread. • ...aaaannnndddddd finally, due to the bullshit that happened during last years SPKOTR, people involved with the management of the contest are not eligible to enter.
