Firefox Flicks Challenges Filmmakers To Get Mobilized In 2013
[ Technology]

Are you a filmmaker that happens to be a fan of Firefox? Do you want a chance to win a few thousand dollars? If so, you’ll definitely want to submit a film for the Firefox Flicks competition this year.

Mozilla announced that this year’s Firefox Flicks competition will be open for entries on February 13. The competition challenges filmmakers to create a 60 second or less video “that help tell the Firefox story.” This year’s theme is “Get Mobilized.” Here’s how Mozilla describes it:

It’s about enabling more people to take advantage of the full power of the Web and giving them better access to easily discover, enjoy and share content that can change their lives. Through Firefox Flicks we are creating energy for our upcoming mobile OS that will deliver on this promise.

Those who decide to make a film have a shot at winning prizes in three categories:

  • Early Entry Awards – There will be multiple chances to win $1,000 for submitting a flick early. The top three early entry submission Flicks will be included in the final round.
  • Regional Winners – One winner from each contest region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia) will win a $5,000 cash prize and one runner up from each contest region will win a $2,500 cash prize.
  • People’s Choice Award – People will be able to vote for their favorite Flick during the People’s Choice Award voting period August 1 – August 31. The three winning Flicks will receive a Firefox Flicks swag bag.
  • If you find yourself interested in the idea of being featured in one of Mozilla’s marketing campaigns, or just winning a cash prize; you’ll want to check out the filmmaker’s creative brief for all the details on the competition. If you find yourself lacking inspiration, you can check out the winners of last year’s competition at the bottom of Mozilla’s blog post.

    The Firefox Flicks 2013 competition will start on February 13 and run through July 31.

      M S/Yahoo tried to hijack my p.c. by taking Firefox out, freezing bookmarks and preventing the re-installation of cookies. Trying to download Firefox via I.E. was difficult, as you could imagine, but I thwarted their “internet linkage lost” messages. Took a day, but the trusted Firefox was eventually restored. Have now got Firefox on flash drive ready for the next assault. Happened once before. Seems microsoft/yahoo are programmed and poised to pounce. Even now, am unable to get a picture from ABC24, Courier Mail and NYT are blocked. Am wondering if I inadvertently disabled a box, yet You Tube is unaffected.
      Life without these two protagonists must be Nirvana.
