How to Enter

Between now and Friday, January 11th, every embedded YouTube video posted to RoboCommunity containing at least one WowWee robot doing something entertaining or significant in the clip gets one entry in the contest. Every video posted is an additional entry. So, the more you post, the better your chances to win.

What's a legitimate entry, you say? I'm glad you asked! The judges will be decide which entries qualify and which don't. Of course, we're sure nobody would consider submitting videos of their robots just standing/lying/sitting/loitering there, but just in case, we wanted to be clear.

Post your video to whatever forum is appropriate, given the robots that it features. We'll figure out the entries and post the results as the contest nears conclusion. Keep an eye out for the tally board.

Then, on the 15th, three videos will be randomly selected to win...

The Neuros OSD

Prizes

Grand Prize: One lucky winner will receive a Neuros OSD. Because the winner is clearly a videophile (as evidenced by their hundreds of video entries to the contest Wink), we're giving away the OSD to help you organize and make videos readily available for playback - almost anywhere. Learn more about the OSD and what it can do for the videophiles among us.

Runners Up: Two runners up will each win a WowWee T-shirt (modeled to the right by the lovely Benny).

So, jump on board! Can't wait to see those videos!
