Create a fabulous video book trailer for Underworld and win an iPad!

Posted Image

How to Enter:

Create a spoiler-free YouTube ready video about the next book in the Abandon series, UNDERWORLD, which is in stores and available on e-readers on May 8.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Length:
Your video should be around 30-60 seconds in length.

Music:
Unfortunately, you cannot use copywritten music in your video, but you can use royalty free music that is available from http://www.danosongs.com/, http://incompetech.c...c/royalty-free/, and http://www.jamendo.com/en/.

Technology:
Most digital cameras and many cell phones can shoot video. You can edit the videos with free programs such as iMovie or Windows Movie Maker.

How to enter:
When you are ready, upload your video to youtube with the tag “Meg Cabot Underworld” and then visit this page to submit the URL, your name, address and e-mail address. http://www.megcabot....-video-contest/

You must be 13 or older to enter. Readers in all countries may enter but prize may be substituted for one of equal value if you are outside of the USA.

The contest ends on June 15, 2012.

Post questions or discuss the contest by replying to this post.

Hi :) I have made my video and posted it on youtube, but I could't post it here: http://www.megcabot....-video-contest/ since you needed to put a state in America on your address and I'm from England! Help what should I do? :blink:
