Aha, but one of the things that makes this contest better than those is that you don't surrender control over the work you submit. If you read the rules, they require you to (a) let them use it and (b) license it under a CC license. So, if you're really paranoid about it, license it non-commercial attribution-required no-modifications...But the whole *point* is to have your work in the global domain, usable to create even larger pieces of work.

And if you design it well enough, well, you do get something out of it...

Get some average-ish looking young-ish guy or gal to stand in front of a white background, have them wax pseudo-philosophically about open copyrights, the sharing of ideas, the community of open art, as an innocuous, playful music ditty that goes dinky-dinky-donk-donk! plays. Now shoot this with your Canon XL1 (the overpriced prosumer camera that every Spielberg/Fincher/Tarrantino/Kevin Smith aspirant owns for some reason!), and that G5 will be yours -- guaranteed!

I really dislike contests set up like this.

The organizers will only choose a single winner, yet can and probably wlil get equal value out of many of other video entered.

I know, it's all for a good cause and that, but corporations often set up similar contests where all entries can be used by the corporation.

I feel if they like what you designed well enough to use it in their promotions, you deserve something in return.

Which is why I never enter contests of this sort (any more).
