My5minutes.com and emotionGarage Announce Film It and Win It!


My5minutes.com, an online community that allows people to upload and download videos for free, and emotionGarage, a Milpitas, CA based automotive tuner shop that specializes in today's leading aftermarket parts, are teaming up to bring you the first installation of Film It and Win It!


The Film It and Win It! Contest requires entrants to make a video, including certain criteria, and upload it to my5minutes.com. My5minutes.com, unlike any other website on the Internet, allows users to share, watch, and rate videos entirely free. All my5minutes.com users gets a free account, including 5 gigabytes of storage, allowing them to upload and download numerous videos of differing lengths and genres. Just weeks since its official launch in March 2004, my5minutes.com boasts over 2,000 users and has had an average new user growth rate of over 20% per week.


The emotionGarage Film It and Win It! Contest requires entrants to make a video that includes a shot of at least one of the products emotionGarage sells in its Euro line. Included in the video must be emotionGarages logo, URL, and phone number located towards the beginning and end of the video for a minimum of five seconds each. The rest of the video is up to individual creative genius; it can be scary, humorous, action filled, etc. Possible examples are a road test review, a day on the dyno, a day at the track, or a group drive.


Completed videos must be uploaded to the emotionGarage category on my5minutes.com by no later than 11:59 p.m., April 25, 2004. Using the my5minutes.com star rating system, ranging from one to five stars, users will have approximately one week to download and rate the videos they like the best. The video(s) that receive the highest star rating(s) by 12:00 p.m., April 30, 2004, will capture their proverbial five minutes of fame, and win the emotionGarage prize(s).
