    Hi everyone, welcome to MASA's very first video competition, now that most of us have these fancy cell phones, nobody has an excuse not to participate. :biggrin: If your phone can't take video, hijack one of your mates phones and lets show the SABC how it's done.:p

    Rules:

    1. This competition is only open to members resident within the borders of South Africa.
    2. No questionable content, such as foul language, naughty pictures, references to drugs/alcohol etc.
    3. Video content must be related to the marine aquarium hobby.
    4. Closing date for entries is midnight 29 February 2012.
    5. These rules are subject to change at any time.

    How to Enter:

    1. Upload your video to either youtube, dailymotion, metacafe or veoh. Youtube is preferred as they don't add annoying adverts in the front of their videos like some other sites do.

    2. Once your video is uploaded, go to the video section of the forum Marine Aquariums of South Africa - Videos and click on this button [​IMG]

    3. Copy and paste the URL of your video into the Video URL: box and click on the Load Information button. Make any changes or add any info you want.

    4. Ensure the box is ticked to create a thread when you submit your video. If the box is not ticked then a thread will not be created and members will be unable to vote on your video.

    5. That's it, you're done. Good luck. :)

    Video's can be of anything related to the marine aquarium hobby, they can be of your display tank, your filtration system, fish profiles, coral profiles, lighting explanations, salt mixing instructions, fragging demonstrations, how to setup an RO unit, how to do your plumbing, how to setup a qt tank, how to aquascape etc. etc. the possibilities are endless. Have fun.

    Last but not least, a big Thank You to Keith from Tripe Five for coming up with the idea and for sponsoring the prize for this competition.

    Hi Viper

    Ive never entered a Video competition before, so this should be interesting and a bit of a challenge

    Just some clarity

    Q1 Can we only enter videos taken by cell phones or is web cam and video recorder acceptable - I cant see why not, but have to ask

    Q2 Is there a limit to the number of entries, the photo competitions had a max of 3

    Thanks for bringing some fun element to the forum

    Hi Viper.

    Can it be of another aquaruim? not to say your own, but one you video-taped?
    and by Marine Aquaruim do you mean a tank that is in someones house?

    Here's a tip: Always put your smile on. People will assume you are a crazy person and won't mess with you.

    Dont eat yellow snow or spit into the wind :tt2:
