Welcome one and all to the first ever The BTS factor! Talent Contest.
Most of us have watched one or other Reality “talent” show, enter the room “Idols”, “America’s Got Talent”, “America's Top Model”, “Project Runway”, “Popstars”, “X-factor” and so on. Many of us watch it simply out of Morbid Fascination, aka to laugh at other people.
And I’m sure many of us have thought “I can do better than that!”...

Well. Here’s your chance to show your stuff. BUT don’t forget that this is AboveTopSecret where Alternative is the name of the game. In other words we don’t want to see you karaoke to “No Woman No Cry” or your rendition of “Lady in Red” on the piano. It’s been done. We want to see weird, wonderful and wacky. We want to see you whistle the X-files theme song through your nose. We want to see you play “Piano Man” on a Didgeridoo. We want to see you juggle 3 cats, 5 hamsters and the washing machine...

*** This thread is for comments and questions ONLY!

How does it work:

1. Record yourself showing off you talent on video.
2. Upload the video to Media@ATS.
3. Post your clip in the entries thread HERE.
4. Members will then give stars to the entries. Member votes will count 33% and Judges’ votes will count 67%.
5. The competition will close Monday 12 October 2009 at 12 PM GMT – at which point the member voting will be tallied.
Date extended to 19 October 2009.
6. Judges votes will then be added and the winners announced.
7. If you want to comment on an entry or ask a question you can do so HERE.


Rules:

1. The competition is open to everyone (staff included – but no points for them!).
2. Your video MUST be your own property, i.e. not someone else’s talent. You have to indicate at the beginning of the video clip that the clip is intended for ATS, for example say “This is my talent for the ATS talent contest” or hold up a piece of paper with “4 ATS” written on it.
3. Your video MUST be uploaded to Media @ ATS. Video clips by other sites will not be accepted.
4. Nothing illegal will be accepted.
5. DO NOT put yourself or anyone else in danger. Trying to shoot an apple from your brother’s head with a crossbow will not be accepted. If you juggle the 3 cats, 5 hamsters and the washing machine and one of the hamsters sprains an ankle, you will be disqualified!
6. You do not have to show your face in the video. If your talent requires a “wide angle” shot, be creative if you desire to hide your identity.
7. Only 2 entries per member. (You can either enter the same talent twice, or two different talents.)
8. All comments in the entries thread will be removed. Entries only! Comments, questions and discussions about entries go here:
9. The usual board Terms and Conditions apply.
10. You MUST have fun!

Prizes:
Category:
Weirdest talent (Will be indicated by Judges):
First Prize: 25,000 points
Second Prize: 15,000 points
Third Prize: 10,000 points

Most Talented (Will be indicated my member voting and Judges):
First Prize: 25,000 points
Second Prize: 15,000 points
Third Prize: 10,000 points

I am trying to think of something that I could do.

I will have to give this some thought, because the competition is already stiff as can be!

Does the entry HAVE to be a video clip? I have multiple MP3 recordings of music I play. I can provide original files for any proof needed.

To be fair all entries must be video clips. However, post your clip, and if you get enough votes to be in the running, we'll come up with a consolation prize.

The official first three prizes will only go to video entries.
