The AP Video contest is officially closed. There were 12 total entries! Only the 1st 10 entries were supposed to generate a $100.00 donation, but Granny Smith has decided to extend that to ALL 12 ENTRIES, making the total donation to Eli Hops $1200.00! But wait, the good news doesn’t stop there… EVERY ENTRANT WILL RECEIVE A CASH PRIZE! That’s right, as a thank you for taking the time to make your videos, and for having a little faith in a completely new contest involving an unknown entity, every entrant will be rewarded with some cold hard cash! Some awesome videos have been submitted, so the final determinations are still being worked out, but stay tuned for the prize announcements! Thank you all for making this one of Granny Smith’s most awesomely fun giving adventure yet!

That’s so cool! Thanks guys!

“Hello all. I’ve been busy taking care of a chronically ill person since 4am (my time). I will get some rest before reviewing and reevaluating the videos again. My plan is to post results with their corresponding prize tonight – 8pm Pacific Time at the latest. Positive feedback/critiques will also be posted. Anyone wanting the negative feedback (in other words, the things that might have held your video back from placing higher, or the kind of things that could have been done better) can receive that feedback in a private message by sending a request to Granny Smith. Thank you all again for making this such a rewarding giving adventure!!!”

I was really impressed with this… Some great entries which were a treat to watch, lots of money going to the Eli Hops Foundation, HUGE prize money and very professionally organised.

Well done to the organisers for pulling this off so seamlessly. The prize money was also a great motivator!
