Everfree Northwest: PMV Contest
Everfree Northwest PMV Contest 2: Return of the Revenge
The Everfree Northwest PMV contest is back and it’s better than ever! This year will have not one, but two PMV categories. That’s right ponies, this year we’re doubling up on the categories! That means double the prizes, double the videos, and double the fun!
The first category and the returning champion is the Pony Music Video! Mix some music with some Friendship is Magic and serve; need I say more? Joining the music video this year is our second category, the non-music Pony Movie Video! Take non-music audio from your favorite source or make your own, and just add some pony! Mash several clips together, do an extended segment, the choice is yours!
The contest is simple; simply submit a PMV published after Febuary 3rd to Everfree Northwest’s contest email, firstname.lastname@example.org, via download link. This year’s cut-off deadline is June 16th. Submissions will be played during an event in the Crystal Ballroom, followed by a panel announcing our winners. Prizes will be awarded to the best PMVs of the bunch!
Remember to keep it convention friendly, but aside that, go nuts! Let your creativity and imagination run wild. Create the next great music video, or an awesome comedy sketch. Maybe you should ponify a new movie trailer, or try having our favorite multi-colored equines dance to a funky beat. The choice is yours!
Be sure to read up on the official contest rules. If you have any questions, need clarification, want to make sure your PMV is adhering to content guidelines, or anything else relating to the PMV contest, please email us at Everfree Northwest at email@example.com
