Sorry to come to this late but I have a suggestion.

Reference the discussions about tools:- You could try something like the Internet Ray Tracing Competition (http://www.irtc.org) in which the competition entries have to also send a text file containing some mandatory fields. This text file will be viewable along with the image by judges and the general public. This would allow judges and the public to consider how much a given tool helped the entry and - if they so choose - reflect that in their rating. Of course there would be no requirement to consider this and the file could simply be used for information/reference purposes.

Cribbing heavily from the IRTC site the file might contain something like this..

Mandatory Fields:
USERNAME: <Your Muvipix user name>
DECLARATION: I SUBMIT TO THE COMPETITION RULES
CATEGORY: <The category of the competition you are entering>
TITLE: <The Title of your creation>
SOFTWARE USED: <This would include PE, After effects, PSE, MSPaint ;) etc.>
Optional fields
DESCRIPTION:
<anything you want to say about your creation's content - location, actors, background, inspiration etc.>
HARDWARE USED: <PC Specs for rendering, video/still camera used , home made steadycam etc. - People are often interested in this>
DESCRIPTION OF HOW THIS ENTRY WAS CREATED:
<Description of how you created your entry, what techniques you used, what caused problems etc..>

Just a thought.

I think you have to accept that if you offer advice or suggestions in a public forum then these will be taken up and used - and you're not going to be able to control what is done with them. If it's "cheating" to ask for help then surely any video that uses a technique that has been explained on the forums is "cheating" as well.

Remember - by asking for help about an effect you're showing your hand and sharing your idea with the other competition entrants! ;)

I like your idea Chis's about the information on the entry. I think it would help in judging and I think people are interested.

I also agree with you about asking for help. There have been effects in the past that people have stated were learned from a tutorial from someplace else. And I have no problem with someone asking for help in accomplishing a technique.

I also like putting in the information about the entries.

I agree with Doreen and the others as well. Asking for help executing a technique should be fine. The contest is about the execution of techniques in order to tell the story. Even a step by step tutorial about a technique where everyone used the same files and followed all the steps would be different for each person that tried it. Getting some help in the forum would help improve the ability to execute a technique, but the result would still be the individual creator's work, and that is the basis on which they would be judged - how well they used the effects to tell a story.

Every video tells a story. Some are about people, places, events. Some are about effects. Some are told well, some are not. That is where the competition lies. :)

The goal is to put together the best possible video. If there is an effect that would make it the best, but you don't know how to do it, then you need to get help.
Having someone show you how is one thing, asking someone to do it for you is something else. Not that you can't team up with someone if you like, but you need to enter the contest as a team.

We haven't had a lot of rules in the past and things have worked out ok. We will need to put together some guidelines and rules that will provided everyone with a pleasant experience and one that we will all learn something from. The goal here is to stretch everyone a bit and to learn something new :)

Maybe I missed it, but can we submit more than one video for the contest, or is it one entry per person?
