Announcing an AAC video contest! Submit your best and win.

Posted on: December 30th, 2009 by Erik Lambert

Spare time over the holiday? The AAC is holding a holiday video contest, and we want to hear from our many talented members making videos of their climbing pursuits.

What’s at Stake:
The first 50 entries into our holiday video contest, selected or not, will receive an AAC-engraved Piranha knife from Trango.

The top three videos will receive feature space on the blog, website and YouTube channel, as well as prizes: 1st place will receive an Osprey Mutant 38 pack, 2nd place will receive an AAC Ibex Hoody and 3rd place will receive a MSR Exo2 System. We will also rotate selected entries on this blog on a weekly basis.

The Theme:
We’re leaving this one open-ended. Your video can be funny, serious, informative or otherwise, just make it about climbing.

How to Play:
Between now and January 31, 2010, upload your not-previously-uploaded video (it can be new or old, just not uploaded in the past) to YouTube and tag it with “americanalpineclub” (be sure to spell it correctly, so we can find it). Please make sure your video is three minutes or less. By submitting your video to the contest, you are implying permission for the AAC to showcase it online.

How to Submit:
Once you’ve uploaded, shoot Emily an email at [email protected] with your name, YouTube ID, contact information (email and phone) and the title of your video. You can also send us this info via Twitter (DM @americanalpine). We’ll make sure it’s on the AAC YouTube channel as a favorite.

How to Win:
The contest will operate solely on views, and the video with the most views by February 15, 2010 will win. We’ll spread the word from AAC headquarters, to get fellow climbers onto YouTube to check out the selection. If there’s a tie, we’ll check out the rating. Winners will be notified via email.
