THAT is bad - really sorry and hope you have help with computer and can get up to speed FAST. And you'll be there for the fan event?, one way or the other - online, at least.
Tho I dread some Internet or computer glitch, so hope all who can tape and post everything will be kind in case of computer bumps.

Bomby... I applaud your efforts... [In reply to] Can't Post

but even if they were to consider your video and ignore the duration... you have featured Lord of the Rings merchandise throughout it.

The official rules prohibit the use of any merchandise, movies, clips, soundtracks... basically anything that has copyright protection.

The competition required people to apply their own script, music, talent, artwork, costumes, whatever...

Denny's didn't have any requirements as to what the content was (animation, singing, a short film, etc.) just that it met the duration requirement, didn't have any offensive material (family friendly), was uploaded to YouTube before the deadline, and didn't contain any copyrighted material...

Sorry Bomby.

Indeed they do... [In reply to] Can't Post

... we all do. Quoting something and posting it on a message board is different than entering into a contest with prizes.

The rules are pretty clear on the website.


I've seen a lot of these contests and typically if they will allow the entries to use copyrighted material... they will post that on the site for people to be able to download.

The rules below are what caught my eye:

The Video Submission must not contain any music, photographs, video footage or artwork that is owned by any person or entity other than the entrant (without limitation of the foregoing, the Video Submission may not include any footage, photographs or music from The Hobbit Trilogy or the films comprising The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, which includes The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King);

The Video Submission must not depict or refer to any brand or trademark other than Denny’s

Well Bomby... I don't wish you any ill will... [In reply to] Can't Post

... at all.


Maybe they will let you through. Those things just jumped out at me when I read them back when the contest was first announced.

Hope your computer issues get fixed as well.

Sorry it didn't work out for you, Bomby [In reply to] Can't Post

Did you sent it in anyway? It couldn't hurt to try.

But, fear not! There will be other contests, sweepstakes, etc., both Hobbit-related and not, to win a trip to Middle-earth. Of course, TORn is just a fan website, so we don't actually sponsor any of the contests, but we always report about them when we hear about them. So, keep you ear to the ground here, and Google might also be of help. You'll eventually make it! Smile
