New SITE WIDE Contest!
« on: February 20, 2013, 09:01:18 PM »
It's been a while, so here we go!

This contest will be a little different than before.  To enter, you need to make a YouTube video having to do with HandmadeArtists!  You could do a video on your own items or shop, other shops, a site tour or whatever you can dream up having to do with HandmadeArtists.  Let your imagination run wild!  Once you've made your video, post the link to it in this thread. The winner will be determined in the blog as before...  we will post all of the entries and let everyone vote via a poll for the winner.  There will be a comment winner, too, chosen by a random number generator after a specified time period!

HandmadeArtists will award the winner $25 to spend anywhere on the site.  I'm also asking for volunteer(s) to donate a prize for the comment winner, too, or an additional prize for the winning entry.

This contest starts Monday, February 24, 2013 and will end March 15, 2013.  That gives everyone some prep time (but early birds are okay!) and just about a month overall.

Can't wait to see all the videos!

this sounds like fun...I've never made a video before.  can I make it right on youtube?  hmmmmm...gotta think about this.  ;)

You make the video then upload it to YouTube.  It's easy to do.  Most digital cameras have a movie option so everyone should be able to participate!  I think it will be fun!

Thank you SO MUCH for posting this link, Anne!  I've used Movie Maker and it's super simple for the non-pro!

My camera video / movie thingy no longer works, or I have done something to make it not work.

I have an iMac, Windows programs are no longer compatible with iMacs / Safari, even though I use Firefox, some things like the movie maker, just do not work.

The new Movie Maker on iMac SUCKS, it is so awful, I hate it, that is why I have stopped making and posting tutorials on Youtube. 

I am very disappointed that iMac changed things with Snow Leopard (OS), and the new OS "Lion", I can't run on this machine, so all in all in it is a matter of technical difficulty.  Pity.

That is a colossal drag!  If what you wrote is true for all MAC users, we may want to rethink this contest, as we don't want to exclude everyone using a MAC.

Not to discourage people -  :-\

I have an iMac not a MAC, there is a difference.
My iMac has no external drive, it is a monitor that I plug a keyboard into.  I purchased this particular machine in 2005, so it is eight years old.  It was initially a Tiger OS, 10.4. Operating System.  I have since upgraded the memory, and installed Snow Leopard OS v10.6.8.

My iMac may not work with the programs because I have changed things, it is old and not running the newest OS Lion 10.7 or something.  Safari is designed to not function with Windows programs, they did on purpose, ask Apple or try a Smart Bar, they will tell you the same thing.  I use Firefox, not Chrome, my machine doesn't like Chrome.

I would think that most people have a PC or that most MAC users don't have antiquated dinosaur equipment like I do.

So good luck everybody and join in!  Let's see those flicks!
