I would say we limit file size -- this way we effectively limit time
without saying so :)
And yes, this is kinda inspired by firefox flicks, but not quite--I do
not see this as a Fedora ad contest, but film contest in which only
films can participate which Fedora can play out of the box.
All videos will have to be released under some type of open license,
and I would recommend Creative Commons.
We can give them a couple of abstract topics to film about, but I
would not stick to it too much. What I see this program achieving
1. to assert that YES, Fedora supports enough media formats,
2. and of course to get creative people more involved,
3. and to get a few good videos to spice up fedoraproject.org
That's the plan--we can publicize the call for submissions on
as well :)

Sounds interesting. :)
It's like Firefox Flicks - http://www.firefoxflicks.com/adcontest/
Do you have any recommended size or length of the video clips?
