Blizzard has announced a fan video contest, in which you can share your happiest memories of something Blizzard-related, and potentially win some nice prizes. Here’s the official blurb:
For two decades, players like you have provided us with wonderful memories, and we’d love to know how our games have been a part of yours. Unleash your creativity and capture your favorite Blizzard game-related memory on video.
How you do it is up to you; your favorite moment can be heartwarming, hilarious, or truly epic. Your video can be live action, animated, or something in-between—what’s important is the memory you share with us. If your video gets us misty-eyed or makes us stand up and cheer, it could be chosen as one of the winning entries. You can earn countless accolades, untold fame, universal admiration…and legendary prizes including:
- An expenses-paid trip to BlizzCon
- Keyboards, mice, headsets, and more from Razer, SteelSeries, and Creative Labs
- Drinking vessels from TavernCraft
- Action figures from DCDirect
- Custom posters featuring your character from PrintWarcraft
Ready to take us on a journey through time and space? Check out the official rules page for details and eligibility.
The fine print on the rules page says that they’ll pick the ten best videos and post them on Blizzard.com. Fans will then vote on those 10 for two weeks, determining the three winners. Only 1 winner gets the Blizzcon trip, while the top 3 get a bunch of merch and keyboards and headphones and stuff. Plus the ever-lasting fame and glory, of course. Also note that it’s only open to residents of the US and Canada, excluding North Dakota, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, or Quebec.
If you’re into video editing or doing this sort of creative visual stuff, you should enter. Put your video on YouTube and send us the link, if nothing else. It’ll be fun to see what people come up with, and it would be awesome if someone won a Blizzard contest with something related to Diablo, for a change. That said… you’d probably have a better chance of winning if you do some WoW thing, since that’s alljudges seem to know. Also, it would probably be a good idea not to mention anything related to Blizzard North or Diablo II. Not if you want to win, anyway.
