Movies for Music is launching with a video contest that will run from June 14 - July 21. We're accepting videos in two categories:
1. The RIAA in 30 Seconds: 30-second TV ad-style videos that get right to the point.
2. Everything Else: Any other kind of video or animation as long as it focuses on an aspect of the music industry. We recommend keeping videos under five minutes.
Honorable Mentions: will receive a t-shirt of their choice.
Everyone: Everyone who submits a video gets a "Movies for Music" compilation DVD of all the entries (and maybe some bonus material ; )
But the real prize is the chance to show people how the music business works and make some real change.
We'll have a to-be-determined judging process to pick the best videos received by July 21.
Downhill Battle and p2pnet will be reporting regularly on the movie contest, and we'll be contacting mainstream press as well. If the movies are great, maybe we'll get some great write-ups.
