uCoz video tutorials contest
A new contest dedicated to creation of video tutorials about the system starts. What do you need to participate in the contest? All you have to do is to create your own video tutorial about uCoz (you can come up with the topic yourself or select the suggested one).

By the way, we have a brilliant manual on creation of video tutorials. If you follow the instructions, you will become a contest participant without any extra efforts and you will have high chances to become a contest winner. The awards are really worthy. But first of all, let's speak about nominations:

Nominations

The best uCoz web-services overview video

This video tutorial should be dedicated to uCoz web-services in general (great example is Creating a website within 10 minutes). To make the choosing process easier, you may select one of the topics for this nomination.


The best uCoz feature expose video tutorial

Such a tutorial should be about using a particular system feature (e.g. "Adding items in E-shop module”). Select one of the topics for this nomination or come up with your own.


The best video tutorial in a foreign language

If you are good at any of the foreign languages, try to create a video tutorial for foreign system users. Russian-speaking participants can take part in the similar contest, for Russian-speaking users. In this way you increase your chances for the victory.


All the participating video tutorials will be evaluated in such nominations as:

The best voice narration

In this nomination video tutorials are evaluated by means of hearing and not watching. Voice, music, sound effects will be taken into consideration.


The best idea

The most important here is to come up with the most urgent and interesting topic , for a video tutorial. The video script should be thought through too. The way the idea was brought to life is not that important.


The best video effects

Applying video effects to your video will attract more users to viewing your tutorial for sure. The main point is that the effects are appropriate and they do not steal the focus from the main idea of the tutorial.


Top views

Promotion of a video tutorial is really important. You need to attract as many users as possible. Post your video tutorial at sites and on forums (especially in the place where it is useful) and observe the number of views increase. The number of comments will be of a big importance as well. The author of the most commented video tutorial on youtube will be awarded without any doubts.

Each participant, whose project is accepted, will receive a bonus of a "Basic” package of services for 1 month (read more)
