Howcast is launching its first video contest — the How-To Video Challenge — and they are asking filmmakers, video artists, and DIYers to dream up a fresh, original approach to the how-to video.
First prize is $2000. We’ve got awesome judges lined up — Peter Baxter, Slamdance Film Festival; Jeff Cooperman, The Colbert Report; Katherine Sharpe, ReadyMade Magazine; Tim Sullivan, Magical Elves (Project Runway, Top Chef). And, the top submissions will be showcased across online, mobile and off-line platforms.
Can you reinvent the how-to in three minutes or less?
Here are all the links you need to get started (and there’s no fee for entry):
