Earlier this week, we launched a WordPress.com Video Contest all about giving thanks. No matter where on Earth you are, we invited you to submit a 30-second video all about the things that bring you joy. And it’s still on!
The new deadline for submissions is midnight Pacific time (UTC-8) on December 4, giving you an extra week to show us your awesome vids.
Remember, the winner of the contest wins a Flip Mino HD video camera, plus a one-year subscription to VideoPress!
To submit your entry, just post your video to your blog with the tag ThanksgivingContest09.
UPDATE: Winners will be notified by email!

wow! thank you for extending the deadline… ^ ^

I’d do this more for having done so than for the Flip Mino. The year video blog subscription is nice, though.
Is more than one submission allowed per user?
Nov 29th at 5:27 am
Video is the best
Nov 29th at 6:54 am
What a good idea. I hope you post the winning video!
Nov 29th at 7:42 am

Woot Woot! Awesome – I was really bummed on Saturday when I realized I missed the first deadline…
Dec 1st at 2:13 pm
Now that’s a great idea! One extra week is all we needed. Soon it will be WordPress TV…

I want to see too who will be the winner!!!
Dec 1st at 3:37 pm
I just made mine and it was very hard to do it in 30 seconds… I left so much out. but I got it done… I want to see the winner and the runner ups.
Dec 1st at 6:13 pm
Great idea! I entered on the 27th, but it’s odd that it doesn’t show up in the search. Surely there are more than 10 entries – it would be fun to check out the competition! Did I do something wrong?

Hehehe, we have a great video but we can’t upload it. Because… we don’t have enough money to upgrade our WordPress

My Video is ALREADY Embedded, but I need to add a title for you:
“THANKFUL for LAUGHTER IN THE WOODS…and creative friends”
Happy Thanksgiving 2009

My video is no longer showing on my post. Was it removed by WP due to my complaint? Or, has something techie just gone awry? Please assist. Thanks!

Extending the deadline is cool so that more people can participate. It’s nice to see lots of other people’s work on the theme.
Dec 7th at 6:07 am
Oh, and are you planning additional holiday-themed contests/opportunties?
Dec 7th at 5:52 pm
How about “MY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS” Video blog for 30 seconds?
I think this could get quite creative and inspiring!
