Fantasy Road Trip Contest

May 28, 2009

Listening Library is sponsoring the Fantasy Road Trip Contest! Create videos based on an imaginary road trip with characters from one of three great fantasy series by Libba Bray, Tamora Pierce, and Rick Riordan! (Note: this is not a Wake County sponsored contest)

#1. Have fun and be creative!

The more you use your imagination, the better—songs, animation, sock puppets, whatever inspires you!

#2. Take on the challenge.

For your video to be eligible, you must find a way to include these things:

  • a reference to Florida
  • a reference to audiobooks
  • a clip of dialogue from the audio you’ve chosen (we’ve made these clips for you, you can download them below to use in your video)

Try to stump us—find an inventive way to use these elements in your entries (it doesn’t have to be a literal translation). The contest video has them too, did you find them?

#3. Post your entry on YouTube.

The contest will open for entries on June 1st. Please check back here for details on how to post your video so that it will be considered. Videos submitted incorrectly or before 6/1/2009 will not be considered.

#4. The fine print…

Ok, everyone, here’s the 411: to enter you must be between the ages of 13-18 and a legal resident of the United States. The contest will open for entries June 1-August 17, 2009.. Winners will be selected and notified by August 31, 2009 by YouTube message. One winner will be chosen for each author category (the participating authors will choose the winning video for their category) and will receive: 1 8GB iPod touch and a collection of audiobooks signed by the author. Videos less than 30 seconds or greater than 5 minutes in length or containing profanity or inappropriate content will be disqualified.

WINNERS: Authors will judge the videos, each picking a winner (for a total of three), who will receive an 8GB iPod Touch and a collection of signed audiobooks.
