Sony Online Entertainment Fan Faire - Backstage Blogger Contest

Have you ever wanted to see what Fan Faire is like behind the scenes? Now’s your chance to find out! Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is looking for guest bloggers to write and record their Fan Faire adventures in Las Vegas! Backstage Bloggers will win prizes, and may be granted special access to several Fan Faire activities including panels, live quests, tournaments, and VIP events!

The Contest:

From Thursday, June 16, 2011, at 12:00:01 a.m. PDT, through Tuesday, June 28, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. PDT, SOE will host the official SOE Fan Faire - Backstage Blogger Contest, in which bloggers can use video and written submissions to show us how much they like their favorite SOE Games. At the end of the contest, up to four winners will be selected as Backstage Bloggers! Backstage Bloggers will be awarded one Sony Bloggie™ Touch Camera Kit, one Fan Faire All-Access Pass, and special access to post their video and written blogs on the SOE Station Blog throughout Fan Faire. Winners will be responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and other related expenses. Fan Faire attendance for all three (3) days and participation is required for contest eligibility.

Winners will be notified on or around July 1, 2011, and announced during Fan Faire!

Good luck to everyone, and we look forward to seeing you at Fan Faire!

The Selection Process:

A panel of judges will review the submissions and select a winner. The panel of judges will use a 0-100 point scale: 0-20 points for video blog originality, 0-20 points for written blog originality, 0-20 points for video blog creativity, 0-20 points for written blog creativity, 0-10 points for video blog thematic content, and 0-10 points for written blog thematic content consistent with the theme of the SOE Fan Faire Backstage Blogger Contest. In the unlikely event of a tie, the judging panel will break the tie by determining which of the tied entries better represents the theme of the contest.

Up to four (4) eligible contestants receiving the highest number of points from the panel of judges in each category combined will be a Grand Prize winner, subject to verification of eligibility by SOE following the contest period.
