That was your comment BTW. Now that you’ve clarified what your contest intends to offer, I believe potential entrants can make a much more informed decision. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a businessman and I completely understand using marketing tools in order to make potential profits. But also as a content creator, whether I’m ‘making MTV style videos’ or not I expect to be properly compensated for my efforts either monetarily or through visibility that will lead to money making opportunities. Nobody likes to work for free and despite the mindset of many would be contest managers, content creation is not something that you can just ‘whip up’ for nothing. Contests imply risk, it is only fair that the risk be worth it and potentially achievable.
