Cataclysm YouTube Commercial Contest

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm will soon be upon us, and you, the brilliant filmmakers of World of Warcraft, can help us prepare Azeroth for the coming catastrophe by entering our Cataclysm YouTube Video Contest.

How the message gets out is entirely up to you. You could do your civic duty and create a public service announcement to warn the populace of the dangerous times ahead. Perhaps you'd rather capitalize on the chaos and create a commercial based on a product or service one might peddle to the desperate citizens seeking comfort or safety in an Azeroth rent asunder by the Cataclysm. Whichever course you choose, all you need to do is create your masterpiece, make your own YouTube channel, and post your video there. Send us the link, and your entry is complete!

The very best video entries will be rewarded for their efforts with awesome prizes. The grand prize package will consist of an Acer Predator AG7750 gaming PC equipped with a GeForce GTX 470 and 3D vision glasses, a Creative Labs Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset, and a Xai laser mouse and Cataclysm-themed mouse pad from SteelSeries. Four runners-up will win the Creative Labs Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset as well as the SteelSeries Xai Gaming mouse and Cataclysm themed mouse pad. If you've been craving an upgrade to your gaming rig, you might be interested in checking out a special offer from NVIDIA on 3D Vision products.

The contest begins on October 7, 2010 and ends on November 23, 2010. All entries must be received by the deadline to be eligible to win a prize. Looking for inspiration?
