Win a Free Trip to the 2013 Tenkara Summit in Virginia

Win a Free Trip to the 2013 Tenkara Summit in Virginia

On May 11 and 12 we’re holding the 3rd annual Tenkara Summit (registrations now open), this time in Harrisonburg, Virginia. This is promising to be a great event, with phenomenal fishing all around.
To celebrate it Tenkara USA is giving out a free trip to the Summit. This will include: one round-trip ticket from/to your home within the Continental USA, 2 nights in the hotel where the Summit will be held, free attendance (a $100 value) and a tenkara rod!

How to Participate?
To get a chance to win you’ll need to create a video about tenkara. The video must be new (shot, edited and uploaded after this post went up). It should be uploaded on Youtube or Vimeo, and a link to it must be entered in the comments for this post. By posting the link on the comment section you grant Tenkara USA the rights to share the video online through its blog, Facebook and Twitter pages, and other online medium.
Video must be uploaded by April 10th. Winner will be selected on April 20th.

How to Win?
We’ll select the winner by allocating 10 points based on the criteria below. The main way to win the free trip will be based on number of views of your video, which carries 6 points.

1) Number of views* (6 points, video with most views gets 6 points, others will be “graded” on a curve)
2) Over 2,000 views (1 point)
3) Featuring Tenkara USA gear (1 point)
4) Conservation message (1 point)
5) TUSA Staff Favorite (1 point)

* Video must have at least 500 views
** 1 point deducted if negative comments/thumbs down equal or surpass positive comments/thumbs up
*** In the event of a tie, Tenkara USA will find an unaffiliated person to serve as a tie breaker based on his/her favorite film.
1) By submitting video link to this contest, the user who submitted the link attests he has full copyright ownership of said video, and has the explicit authorization from those who appear in the video to use their image.
2) User who submitted the video grants Tenkara USA a royalty-free, irrevocable and unrestricted right to share the video through any channels Tenkara USA sees fit.
3) Winner agrees to communicate promptly with Tenkara USA to ensure any flights and hotel room are booked by no later than April 25th.
4) Contest entry dates end on April 10th at midnight PST. Winners will be chosen on April 20th.
5) Flights are for domestic, continental USA flights only. No international flights.
6) User must be 18 years old or older to enter the contest.
7) User may submit up to 5 videos.

The goal of this contest is to help bring awareness about tenkara to new people.
However, you do not need tenkara equipment to participate. So long as you talk about tenkara (perhaps what has made you interested in it), then it’s okay. Also, keep in mind if you also talk a bit about conservation (perhaps stream cleanup, Tenkara with John Gierach and Ed Engle) there is an extra point in there.
