Intel Launches Digital Showdown

Hey Mom!   Intel has some Laptops to give away…

Perhaps you do have some ingenious and creative ways on getting by everyday with your family and a new laptop could be of such great help keep you sane, however there’s a catch.   You might need a camera recorder for this, though.   But unless you are ready to hit the screens, you could always let your kids join the contest.    Let me give you a slight of an introduction on what I mean…

Filipinos are now recognized as one of the world’s top video uploaders on the most popular social networking sites.   As such, Intel, the Largest silicon company, recently announced a new digital short film-making contest for Filipino home-movie enthusiasts called the  “Intel Digital Showdown.”   This contest taps into the Pinoy’s creativity and fondness for creating and sharing videos on Facebook.

“We want to showcase the Filipino creativity and skill across the region, and channel it through the usage of a PC,” said Randy Kanapi, marketing manager for Intel Microelectronics Philippines, Inc.

And here is the great deal!  Winners of the contest have the chance to win notebook computers powered by the 2nd Generation Intel  Core i3, i5 or i7 processors.

Interested participants must first “Like” the Intel Faebook to join.   The theme of the videos must be based on how the PC makes an impact in their life and may either be 30 seconds, 50 seconds or 70 seconds in length.   Videos may be shot in any format.   Submissions must be converted into FLV video and files must be no larger than 10 MB.

Participants can submit as many original entries, but can only win once.   Finalists will be chosen by a judging panel appointed by Intel, after which their entries will be uploaded to the Intel Philippines Facebook fan page for voting by Intel fans.

To increase chances of winning, Intel also commissioned renowned film directors RA Rivera and Quark Henares to provide mentoring and film-making expert advice on Facebook.

Voting will be open to the public for two weeks after the finalists’ submission of entries.   The top three short-listed films with the most number of votes will be winners.   Deadline for entries is on July, 2011.
