Well, congratulations to the winner of the video contest, he did a good job. But I think some of the small prizes are not fair. They have been given just because of the traffic they could bring to their videos, not for the quality or originality of the video. I think I merit at least one of thoose small videos...

Hello missak. I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment. Although I wasn't updated with what's happening on the contest and the names of the winners I saw on my alert was not familiar either. I don't know what's the criteria that mylot was looking for. But hey, cheer up. Consider it as a learning experience for you. You will have your chance again in the future.

Thank you! I think what I learned is that I don't have to waste my time with contest, and work for a professional thing instead, but here in Spain the video professional possibilities are so bad...

Like the saying, try and try until you succeed. There is always a better opportunity for all of us. I know its easier to say it out aloud but you should always believe in your own capability.

Missak, the only video I have watched was the winner's own, and though it was cute, they made their decision, although I wonder what they were deciding on in this contest; Since I wasn't interested in entering, I paid it no mind, but just because you didn't get this on the first round, don't give up the ship or the boat. If you enter something, you may or may not win, and depending on what the judges are looking for, well, you may be in or you may be out. Please don't give up the chance of showing your talents to the world because one day it may make the difference in someone's life. I know perhaps you don't wish to hear this, but I want you to know that if you have something within, then go out there and show it!! I wish you well and don't give up coming to the U.S. and your other dreams. There are ways to do this. Wishing you the best!!

You are right. Don't worry, that is not my problem. I have been in a lot of contests in my life, and I have won many of them. Just I was sad because I thought is time to stop winning childish contsts and start earning for a professional work, you know what I mean? I have to make something for this change.

This is not the first contest I enter. I have won some and lost others, I know what is that about. And it is not about hard work, I can assure you. My videos were the most elaborated of all. But they didn't take care of that. I am a bit tired of contests, I fell I have to work for something sure, not for something to be judged...

I am so sorry to hear that you didn't win. Everyone kept saying that old buddy would win the contest but he didn't. I do see that he did win twice though. they should have gave someone else the chance to win insted, I think instead of letting one person win twice. I never win anything either so don't feel bad. I do feel sorry for those who tried really hard though and didn't win.

hi,missak,i am sorry to hear that you lost the winner,i believe you must spend much time on the video contest,so when you won nothing,you will feel unhappy,and you may consider that your work is better than some others,but they can win the small prizes,you will unfair.but i suggest you should keep a quiet heat,you will feel better.

I am sorry that you did not win. I didn't get involved with this contest at all. I had a bad feeling about it. I didn't even see many of the videos before they announced the winner. I did look at the winners and I wasn't really all that impressed. But there is nothing you can do about it now. I would like to see yours. Can you give or send me a link please.

Not bad. I liked yours better than I did some of the winners. I liked the second one better mainly because I like that song.

You did do very well. I didn't get to see the other top ten, just the winner. It was good, but a little long for a commercial I thought. I am sure it was difficult for the judges and everyone thinks they should have won. Some of the videos were down right dumb if you ask me, but alas, I was not a judge. I enjoyed your videos and thought they were very original.

I did not look at any of the entries, and I don't know who the judges were, but if it was based on traffic votes then there isn't much you can do about the results.

I won't do much... I hope if my friends think as I think they eill go to the winners discussion and complain to mylot. I think it is too egocentric to do that myself. Nobody said that it would be based on traffic, is just my opinion since I don't find how otherwise they could choose some of the results.

Well, I am sorry that you didn't win. Better luck next time. I think those prizes that they gave to other winners is better than nothing.

When I saw the alert, showing the winners of the contest, I thought for sure your name was going to be on the winners list. I am shocked you didn't place in the top 10. Well just know your video really was great, it was put together well and looked very professional, I still think you did a very good job!

Thank you very much. I don't know you very much (I wish to know you more) but I already know that you know how to look at art, and also I know you are an artist (your poems in your blog are wonderful). If you feel like doing so, go to that mylot discussion and tell them hey don't know how to feel art :)... ok, just kidding. Thanks a lot for your support.
