VancouFur Promotional Video Contest!

This year, we are going to try something different...

We have extended the deadline for submissions until February 1st 2014!

Vancoufur’s Video Advertising Department invites the furry community to take part in a video contest as part of our promotional campaign for next year’s convention.

WE WANT YOU to create a short promotional video advertising VancouFur 2014. The Winning Video will be uploaded to our YouTube Channel and featured on VancouFur’s associated social media sites to promote the convention around the world.

Entries will be accepted until February 1st 2014. A four-person panel consisting of Directors Kheetah and Univadedfox, Convention Chairman Akonite, and Marketing Lead Temrin, will judge all entries and select The Winning Video.

The Winning Video will be unveiled at the Welcoming Ceremonies of VancouFur on February 28.

This is the alpha stage of the contest where you can enter a video for pre-judging purposes to better increase your chances at winning the competition. When you upload a video on youtube, please make it "unlisted" (or give us a dropbox/skydrive link) so no one else can view it, except those you give the link to. This will give you a chance to make any improvements (from our feedback) before officially entering your video in the competition
