Posted:Is there any chance of getting more details of the competition?

I see in the article that the prizes are mentioned, but no indication on what the competition is actually being judged on.

Also, how is the winner being selected? Drawn randomly? Chosen by certain people?

I'm guessing that 'fire arts' embodies any 'fire manipulation' that isn't eating or breathing?

Sorry if I'm asking too many stupid/annoying questions...

Anyway, First prize is $2000 USD, AND $1000 USD credit on the HoP account! That's an awful lot of stuff... biggrin Sure is a big incentive for me to get my thinking hat on...

Let the COL2006 discussion commence!!


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:Just a quick question - does it the video have to be of fire?

They're not mentioned in the article but surely LED / UV both fit the COL bill.

Send us your video clip of Staff/Poi/Glowstick/Fire Poi



Meaning any type of poi including LED,tailed,Beaming wink ,Glowstick.....

How will it be judged? Similar to COL, COL2,COL3,COL4 and COL5. If you watch those videos and do some research you'll get more of an idea.
You do not get extra points for using fire.

It is still a compilation. However we have added a competition section for those interested in competing rather than just the sharing aspect.

Posted:Any chance of changing the time limit from 3 minutes to 4..? I think 3 is too short for a routine video. It's like doing the intro and the finale and it doesn't really leave much time for the more artistic elements in my opinion. What do you think??
