Sucky Video Awards
The first person to submit what turns out to be 2011's Suckiest Business Video wins a Kodak Playsport Pocket Video Camera and a copy of How To Shoot Video That Doesn't Suck. However, everyone who submits a nomination will be entered into a drawing to win one of four additional Kodak Pocket Video Cameras and copies of Steve's book. Readers can vote on the video they think is the worst which will help to establish the eventual winning entrant who will, of course, deserve a trophy suitable to the award.
