Past News Releases


A new video Web site, Vboxx.com (http://www.vboxx.com), offers anyone an opportunity to win $5000 every month by submitting a winning video as judged by site participants. Monthly winners will also have a chance at a $50,000 annual prize.

To help launch the site, Vboxx.com is offering a free t-shirt to the first 1000 participants who submit approved ideas for using the shirt in a short video. Participants simply fill out a brief form at http://www.vboxx.com/myidea.php explaining how the shirt will be featured in their video. T-shirts will be shipped to the winners and finished videos are due by March 31, 2007. The contest winner receives the first $5,000 prize.

Following the initial free contest, entrants will pay a $20 convenience fee to submit a video for judging. All videos submitted are entered in the following month’s contest. No more than 2,000 videos are accepted per month, and every month, a $5,000 winner is chosen. Submitters may vote for their own video. At the end of 2007, all monthly winners will be submitted for a “video of the year” judging, with a grand prize of $50,000.

“Too many video contests are judged by so-called ‘experts,’” said Tim Fargo, CEO of Hammerfest Inc., the online media company that created Vboxx.com. “We’ve developed an online video democracy, where users can upload whatever they want and engage in open competition with fellow users, who are also the judges. We hope everyone sees Vboxx.com as an excellent opportunity to get famous and pick up a nice chunk of change every month.”
