It’s the kind of thing that drives semi-pro creators insane (see Jared’s VideoContestKing post). A video contest based not on the quality of the entries but the “popularity” of the creators.
I entered Great Wolf Lodge’s contest, but was amazed that despite family & friend e-mail campaigns that we couldn’t get beyond 2% of votes. My wife kept checking daily, and asking me what more she can do. So reluctantly, I posted this Uncle Nalts video, and now we’re in the running.
P.S. Here’s another contest site: Video Contest News.
