Hello everyone! I am here to ask you all if you would be interested in an idea I had. My idea is called The Episode Edit Festival.
Basically, participants would create one edit per week based on a prompt. However, creating an edit every week is not required. If you signed up for the festival, you would only be promising to make at least one edit (for any prompt). Both editors and artists would be able to participate in the festival.
Edits for the week are always “due” on Mondays. For week one, your edit would need to be completed by Monday, November 2nd by 11:59 US Eastern Time. I would not be checking the exact time each edit was posted, you would just need to do your best to post it by then.
You may be wondering how you would post the edits. There would be two options. You would be able to post your picture on Instagram and use the hashtag #episodeeditfest (you could also tag me in your edit) or respond to the festival thread with your photo. The second option is like how Episode does it for the weekly art releases. When the festival comes to a close, I would post a collage of all of the edits on my Instagram page (@maiarosewrites). The collage would also be posted in the forums thread.
You may also be wondering: “Why would I want to participate in this? There are not even any prizes!”. The answer is: I don’t know. I just thought this would be a fun way to unite the Episode community. But, if you want me to make this a competition I could.
How I could make this a competition
I could involve the non-editors in this community by having them vote on their favorite edits every week. I could also have a panel of judges that provided scores on things such as faithfulness to prompt, if the edit was posted by Monday, cleanliness, etc. There would be some sort of prize for the top three editors. I could separate the competition into artists and editors if there were enough participants.
Finally, some polls to finish things off.
Would you participate in this event?
Would you be more likely to participate in this event if it were a competition?
- I would not participate regardless of if this were a competition or not.
If your were to participate, would you take part in this event as an editor, artist, or voter/judge?
Thank you for making it to the end of this long post!
Any questions, concerns, comments, or feedback? Let me know!
help me out
If this sparks your interest, please share this topic with your friends or fellow artists/editors. I believe the biggest issue for this event would be getting enough people interested in it.
