Ghost video contest

I was viewing some of the ghost video threads here and I thought, "What the heck."

Here are the rules:

Voting: Members of the ISF should look at the videos and decide which they think would:
  • Be most compelling proof of ghosts.
  • The hardest to debunk.
  • Or just the best hoax of the batch.

Contestants:
  • The video can not be edited or Photo Shopped (save editing out the start or end of the video).
  • In camera tricks are allowed.
  • The video MUST be made by the person posting the video.
  • The videos will be voted on by the members here, in thread, since I can not put up a poll before hand.
  • The winner of the best video will get $100.00 US.
  • The second place winner will get $50.00 US.
  • The third place winner will get $25.00 US.
  • All winners must post the fact that they have indeed been paid by me for their winning videos, after they have been paid, obviously.
  • The contest starts at 12:00am August 19th, 2016 (UTC -7) and ends at 12:00am September 19th, 2016 (UTC -7). Any submissions after the end time/date will be fun to look at but will not qualify for the contest.

Yes, I will pay out $175.00 US for this contest, I think it would be fun.

Does anyone think I missed out on something important in the rules?


ETA: If this should go into another topic, mods feel free to move this.

This sounds like fun! I think you should extend the contest until October 31st.

I've been giving it some thought. It will depend on what I can feasibly do with my old VHS recorder. I think the thing has night vision on it if I remember correctly.

We will see how much interest there is. If there is enough, and people need more time due to RL, I would consider that as an option.

You know, if you are the only person to enter the contest you would win first place by default... Just saying.

Give it shot, can't hurt.

I may even make something if time permits, but my video, should I have time to make one, would not go into the contest for obvious reasons, it would just be for the heck of it.
