The Passion Competition submission period for 2017 will be from July 15th until October 28th.  Theme to be announce around July 1st.

I am starting to contact the sponsors we currently have and also a couple former sponsors to see if they will sign on again.

There will be a video category but I am not sure if I will go forward with the script writing category or not. It doesn't seem like there is much interest in keeping the writing category going.

I will have to give this much thought.

Meanwhile, make sure to check out and enter the Create a Superhero contest going on now.

**Update April 16**

Reallusion has agreed to continue their sponsorship this year. 

In order to secure the prizes we agreed upon we will have to get at least 35 entries.  Less than 35 entries may not see them participate.  I was able to secure a deal if we get more than 15 entries but less than 35.  The prize won't be as good as the 35+ prize but still good.

The theme has been determined.  We will be revisiting a prior theme.  Could be the generic one, could be one of the specific ones.

While contacting and negotiating with potential sponsors one thing keeps popping up, lack of participation.

 In 2015 we had to go with a tiered prize system.  The more the entries the better the prizes.  We will have to do that again this year.  Here is how the tiers are working out so far:

1-8 entries will see a very small cash prize (maybe $25) for first place and that is it.

8-15 entries will see a larger cash prize (maybe $50) and possibly something from Moviestorm for first place only and maybe a small cash prize for 2nd but doubtful.

15-35 entries will receive decent prizes for first and second place and a small cash prize for 3rd.

35+ entries will see the good prizes and possibly up to 5 places.  4 places for 35-40.  5 places for 40+.

Not sure how the script writing category will be dealt with yet.

We were lucky in the past to be able to offer great prizes no matter what but sponsors want to see results.  Unless we can get max participation, sponsors will not be returning which means the Passion Competition will become just like Lionhead, a thing of the past.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Your 2017 Passion Competition is now open.

 We have decided to revisit the 7 Deadly Sins.  This should provide a wide variety of story options.

 There is a video category along with a script writing category.

 Check out the updated website and visit the forums for more information.

 We also have 2 video ads up at the moment.  1 general and 1 theme specific. (both made with iClone by Peaches Chrenko)

Enjoy

Judging panels are set.  I love when highly regarded members of the community are willing to help me with this production.

This year we have actors, published writers and judges with great insights into the world of video and writing.  I wish to thank them for helping me.

So, get your entries in so they have something to do.  :lol: :lol: :lol:
