According to the reputable news organization, The Onion, Youtube has just released a new contest and is offering a $100,000 cash prize to the first user to upload a "good video" that has a "shred of originality or artistic merit," and is "actually worth watching."
Here are some of the noteworthy suggestions offered in the video.
- "Have some reason for making a video other than 'I own a camera'"
- "Make sure that the subject of the video can be seen"
- "Shoot the video while sober"
- "Use sound"
Please dont forget to add these great suggestions to the other youtube tips we've already provided
I recommend that you all submit your entries as the only requirement is that "…it be somewhat watchable or provide even a shred of enjoyment for people other than those who made the video." In addition to the cash prize, the video will be featured in Youtube's new "Actually Good" section.
I thought that this was definitely worth a post as I could not stop cracking up and Im sure our ReelSEO readers will get a kick out of this for many reasons… ;-)
