Please provide a link to your video up to 5 minutes in length on one of our supported sites (YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo). If your video is more than 5 minutes, that's okay, just keep in mind that we will only be watching the first 5 minutes from whenever you start your video. (Youtube has an option to send a link at any point of your video. Who needs to see you shake the host's hand, put down your drink... you get the picture!) You will NOT be uploading your video directly through this application. Please make sure your video is not set to private! If your video is set to private, we can’t see it, we can’t make a decision, and we won’t contact you to tell you that either, nor will we refund your submission fee. Audio and video quality are crucial!
