Did you say $5,000?? $5,000? For thirty seconds of great video?

You got it.

If you haven't already seen it, log on to and get the details.

You can win $5,000 -- cash -- if your 30-second video is selected as the best in the competition. Here's the catch: You have to shoot it on a cellphone or smartphone.

Why? Because the whole purpose of the festival is to get you to think small, to consider how to create great visual work using mobile devices for both production and presentation.

And because many of you would LOVE to participate but don't have a video-capable cell phone, I just bought one. It's a Sony-Ericsson K700i, recognized for its camera-like qualities. And I paid to have it delivered by Tuesday so you'll have a chance to use it before you leave for break.

It'll be in PPECS, ready to be checked out, by Wednesday morning. So start thinking about it now: You've got 30 seconds to tell a great story. That's a lot more difficult than having 300 seconds -- or minutes, for that matter.

It's all in the planning.

And we'll make sure you have a phone/camera once you're ready to shoot.
