The short films will be judged on creativity, adherence to the theme of "Wish I Had an Ikan" and effective placement of Ikan product or the Ikan name. First place will be awarded a check for $2,000 and a V8000HDMI LCD monitor. Second place will receive a check for $1,000. Third place will receive a V8000HDMI LCD monitor.
The process for entry into the contest is simple and free of charge. Contestants should first make a video, featuring either the Ikan name or an ikan product in a positive manner using the theme, "I wish I had an Ikan." After completing the video, the contestant should upload their video to Vimeo.com (if you do not already have an account, creating one is fast, easy and free). Once the video is uploaded, the entrant should fill out and send in the Release Form through email, US postal service or fax. For the initial run of the competition, entries will be accepted until Midnight on August 1, 2009. At that time, a panel of industry professionals will judge the entries and the final winners will be announced on August 15, 2009.
