While we wait for the publication of FAMOUS on June 11th, I think it's time for a CONTEST! :)
You must be a US resident (So sorry international readers!) to win a prize
International readers CAN enter, but if you do win, you won't be able to receive your prize
There are no age restrictions
You must have a working e-mail address so I can get in touch with you if you win
WHAT TO DO:
Create a YouTube video that's 3 minutes or less about anything Canterwood! Get creative!
Upload it to your YouTube channel and e-mail me the LINK, NOT the video. I don't have room in my inbox! :)
Send the link to jess_burkhart AT hotmail DOT com
Put "YouTube Contest" in the subject of your e-mail
The deadline is May 5th, 2013.
That gives you one month! :) No entries will be accepted after that.
HOW THE WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN:
You don't need a fancy, expensive program to create a video. For PC users, you can use Windows Movie Maker, if you like, and it comes free with your computer. I'm sure MAC has a similar program.
Three winners will be chosen based on:
* Creativity. Some ideas: discuss your fave character and why, talk about your fave book, do a slideshow of book covers, shoot yourself with your horse and a copy of your fave CC book, create a trailer for one of the books . . . you can do anything! Just keep it 3 minutes or less!
* Following all the rules. Any entries that don't won't be accepted.
* Capturing the Canterwood spirit!
* I will choose the winner. The decision will be posted here on May 12th OR May 19th depending on how many entries I receive.
THE PRIZE, YOU ASK?
Three winners will have their choice of ONE of the following:
A phone call from me
A Skype session with me
A signed copy of FAMOUS
A FEW MORE RULES:
You must put your first name and first initial of your last name in your e-mail with your video link along with your age. I'll post the video on my blog and credit it like "Amanda K. age 11"
I will TRY to post all videos on my blog after the winners have been announced so you all can see the awesomeness that I know will be created. :)
GOOD LUCK! Post any questions you have here and I'll get to them ASAP! If you could blog, Tweet, Facebook, etc. about the contest, I'd so appreciate it!
