Photographers, Videographers, and Musicians… This contest is for YOU!
I’m very proud to be a judge in this very cool Driven Creativity Competition 2012 from G-Technology. There is a $5,000.00 grand prize up for grabs and tons of other cool products from the G-Technology gang.
Unlike some competitions, there is no charge for entering the Driven Creativity Competition 2012.

Copyright and Facebook
Since so many artists (myself included) HATE Facebook’s attempt to copyright grab ALL the content you upload to their servers, G-Technology will NOT share any of the submissions on Facebook in this way. Here is what they have to say in the official rules:
HITACHI UPLOADING OF IMAGES AND CONTENT TO FACEBOOK
G-Technology and the Driven Creativity Competition support the Artists Bill of Rights and as such through the organization of this competition G-Technology will not upload any Competition Entry photos directly to the G Technology US Facebook pages so that your images are not uploaded to Facebook’s servers. We will only put thumbnails on the wall, referencing the main images which would be hosted on drivencreativity.g-technology.com.
G-Technology really gets it in terms of showing respect to artists and I’m proud to be associated with them.
Online entry will be available from Thursday, June 14th, 2012 until Monday, September 24th, 2012. Entries received afterwards will not be considered.
There are two competitions actually! One for US residents and one for EU residents. Check out their sites for more details and info please. Unfortunately this year Canadians are not eligible, but I’m trying to convince my friends at G-Technology to change that in future years!
Good luck to all who enter!
