2016 Video Contest?
« on: February 09, 2016, 05:55 PM »
I know there's been some changing things up, but was curious if there will be a video contest again this year? Enjoyed participating in it in years past.

Bump... I assume it's still happening, right? Just later in the year around the time of Festool Connect?

Meh, don't count on it, they hardly have any contests lately, and when they have one it's in a tiny little corner of the planet and the rest isn't allowed to participate.  [sad]

I get the impression that the video contest was Shane's 'baby' and he is no longer at Festool USA.
If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

At this point I don't think we'll be doing the video contest this year. I've mentioned it to the rest of the team, and no one is too eager to continue it this year. Maybe it will make a return in 2017.

What a shame.  That contest actually provided a great deal of content for the brand, caused a buzz, and also built community spirit here.

I'll take it back to the team and see why they nixed it. (It was put on ice before my arrival.)
