    I know there’s a lot on the plate of people in charge right now, but I was just curious if there’s going to be an Official Brickfilms contest anytime soon. There’s usually one around this time of year, and I’d be disappointed if there wasn’t one.

    Heck, I wouldn’t even mind if there was a BCS.

    And if I recall correctly, TAAB once said that she’d be able to purchase great prizes without any money worries?

    Absolutely. Contests will be a BIG part of BF 3.0. My question to the community is this:

    How often should contests be held? Should there be a series of monthly or quarterly contests with one Big annual contest?

    What do you think are “good” prize levels. Everyone would like to win a million dollars, but what would realistically motivate you to enter? What are your First / second / third prize ideas?

    My thoughts included: Money, LEGO sets, Amazon Gift Certificates, T-shirts …I think we may be able to get LEGO to sponsor some contests.

    How should contest themes be determined?

    How will winners be judged – a review panel? A democratic vote?

    As with the rest of the site, you are in the drivers seat here, so please give us your input.

    I agree with pretty much everything badgerboy mentioned. Oh, and definitely look into getting companies to sponsor contests. I remember one year I think we got Sony to give us a version of Sony Vegas, a piece of editing software for a contest.

    i think that those are all great ideas
    -LEGO sets for prizes sounds like the best way to go…it gives the winner incentive to continue making bigger and better movies. personaly i have never been involved in any brickfilm contest (if u noticed i just signed up today) but i would love to participate in such…

    I think the contest should start at the beginning of Summer, and continue through summer vacation. That will give all participants enough time to make an exceptional film without getting in the way of school.

    Except the Australian folks.

    And personally, summer vacation actually gets in the way of brickfilming. I’m always so busy during the summer.

    Yes it does, I have a busy summer planned already. Nothing, followed by more nothing, and guess what? More nothing!
    Actually I’m going to New Jersey, and a the beach, and Neverland Ranch, and Disneyworld, and Six Flags and Lousiana, and a whole bunch of other places.
