The VidUKon 2016 "Vidder's Choice" vidshow is open for submissions. Many of you will already probably have taken part in this show in the past, but just in case you aren't familiar with it, this is what Vidder's Choice is all about...
Vidder's Choice is a show that anyone either attending VidUKon or who has purchased a supporting membership can participate in. Vidder's Choice has become a regular Friday night feature, almost like an introduction from everyone involved in making the con successful. If you've purchased an attending or supporting membership, you can submit any one vid you've made into Vidder's Choice, and it'll get shown during the show. It can be pretty much any vid you've ever made - not only are obscure shows and films and fandoms eligble, they're actively encouraged. Old vids, new vids, odd vids, funny vids, sad vids, angsty vids, action vids, horror vids... no matter what it is, this is your chance to have it shown at the con, and if you're attending to get to enjoy seeing everyone else watch it - and, if you're really lucky, you get to watch the VJ's head explode from outside the splatter radius as they wrangle all of the vids into something resembling a playlist.
Other than the requirement that you be an attending or supporting member of the convention, there are just two restrictions you need to be aware of:
1. The vid must not be a premiering vid. We've got a show already for premiering vids; it's called Premieres, it's a Saturday night highlight, and we'd always love to have more vids to show in it, so if you have a premiering vid, please send it that way.
2. The vid has to be submitted by midnight GMT on 15 May 2016. Any later than that, and the ftp server is closed for uploads, so the opportunity is lost.
Uploading your vid is easy. Honest. Even I've managed to do it consistently for several years, and I've been known to try and insert my tie into a card reader by mistake. All you need to do is log into your account on the con website, and from the homepage, click on "Upload" in the menu on the lefthand side. Then, at the next screen, select the "Vidder's Choice or Premieres" option, hit "Next", and follow the onscreen instructions.
Anyone who has a supporting or attending membership in place by the upload deadline can submit a vid for Vidder's Choice, so if you're still thinking about attending or supporting, why not jump in? I'd love to see what you submit for the show...
