Concentric Flash Contest (in other words, win $$$!)

I have a friend who does PR for XO Communications which owns Concentric hosting.
The other day, he mentioned that Concentric was holding
a contest
for Flash designers
with a first place prize of $2,500. No, it’s not enough to retire and live a leisurely
life of video game playing (you’d need several more zeros for that), but it will
get you a heck of a lot closer to that plasma TV you know you want. Here is an
excerpt from the contest

We are looking for movie entries that depict Clustered Hosting and our "don’t
compromise" message in the following ways:

  1. An intriguing, thought-provoking, potentially humorous, possibly irreverent,
    animation for our front page, drawing people in further to our site, our
    message, and our products.
  2. A well thought-out, lucid, easy-to-understand animation explaining the clustered
    hosting technology.

This isn’t a commercial for Concentric because I have no idea how good they are,
but this is an opportunity to walk away with some pretty serious gadget and toy
money just for doing what you love to do. I will be charging a 10% referral fee
to the winner, by the way. PayPal information forthcoming. 🙂

    Sounds like a cheap way to commision an animation to me.

  2. That’s generally what these types of contests are about. That, and word-of-mouth publicity. Nothing wrong with that, though, especially if the money is going directly into the Flash community rather than to an advertising agency.
