Announcing the 2008 MTV Movie Awards on Photobucket

A very exciting contest launches today on Photobucket, with our friends from MTV. It’s the 2008 MTV Movie Spoof Contest.

Think you’re ready for your 15 minutes of fame? Bring your inner movie director out, and show the world how well you can "spoof" your favorite movies by submitting original movie shots parodying scenes from the movies listed below.

Just ONE finalist from Photobucket will move to the final round on MTV
– and that’s where voting will take place.

The deadline for
submissions is May 11th, 2008.

The creators of the finalist video will be flown to LA to attend the 2008 MTV Movie Awards, and a chance to accept the coveted Golden Popcorn at the live ceremony from the Gibson Amphiteather in Universal City on June 1, 2008.

Here are some important instructions, because this is a big time contest. Sigh.

1. You can only spoof the movies listed below.

2. Your movie spoof should be no longer than three minutes in length.

3. You have to use the music MTV has provided. Videos with any other music soundtrack will be automatically disqualified. Sorry. Click here to get the music. They’re giving you five tracks for free, or you can purchase more if you want.
