Well, I alluded to us beginning a new video contest on the forum earlier this week. Consider this the official announcement that the contest has begun. The good news: Australian forum members can participate. The bad news: UK members cannot. The silver lining: Festool UK elected not to participate because they will be having their own video contest in the coming months, so you guys will have your chance at prizes albeit not on the forum.

The premise of the contest is to produce one or more how-to or instructional videos and/or testimonial style videos.

How to Enter

- Please use proper safety equipment including ear and eye protection.
- Any video showing unsafe practices will be disqualified.
- Your video does not have to be "professional" looking or edited. Feel free to just do an impromptu video with your smartphone.
- Videos must be one of two types: a testimonial video or a video showing Festool being used in an application of your choosing.
- Your application style video can be of any Festool power tool or accessory of your choosing in the case. Testimonial videos do not need to feature a Festool product, but may.
- Videos should be less than 5 minutes in length.
- You may enter multiple videos to increase your odds of winning, but each video must be on a unique tool or accessory. Limit ten videos per contest participant.
- Videos showing what comes in the box or just going over the features of the tools are not eligible for this contest, but we do appreciate them.
- Contest entries must be received no later than 11:59pm Eastern Time on January 20th, 2014.
- Videos must be your own original material and must be posted to YouTube on or after Dec. 20th, 2013.
- Must be 18 years of age, a citizen of the United States, Australia, or Canada excluding Quebec.
- Festool employees, forum moderators, dealers and other Festool affiliates are not eligible to participate.
- Post your YouTube video in the "How To" for instructional/how-to style videos or "Review" section for testimonial videos during the entry period to submit your entry.
- All entries may be used by Festool USA and Festool Australia for marketing or other purposes.
- Festool USA and Festool Australia reserve the right to substitute the prize for another prize of equal or greater value.

The Prizes for US/Canadian Entries

We'll select a random winner from each category (testimonial and application video). Each randomly selected winner will receive $500 (USD) in "Festool bucks" to spend on whatever Festool gear they choose.

A third randomly selected winner from entries that feature a Domino DF 500, Domino XL DF 700, or Planex LHS 225 will receive $500 (USD) in "Festool bucks".

The first 20 US and Canadian contest participants will receive Festool swag (shirt and hat). I will contact you via PM or email for your address and shirt size.

The Prizes for Australian Entries

Festool Australia will be randomly selecting a single winner from the entries submitted who will receive $1000 (AUD) in "Festool bucks" to spend on whatever Festool gear they choose.

Good luck to everyone!

Very cool, Shane!  Looking forward to all the great entries!  Thanks to Festool for putting this on again.  I really enjoyed the last one.

Shane, are you aware that the [moronic] set of rules governing contests in Quebec are only valid where the prize fund is more than $2000, and therefore are not applicable to this contest?

If so, is there another reason why Quebec residents are unable to enter?

While that is correct and according to this from their contest regulators in Quebec that they only need to adhere to sections 5 and 6, I'm not certain if in fact they do.  And to get a legal opinion on whether they do or not, I'm not certain that Festool USA is inclined to do such and just simply "omit" Quebec which has largely become the norm with contest offerings.  Can't blame them imo.  Red tape that is easier to avoid than navigate thru if you ask me.

Thanks Shane, fantastic Prize for us down here.  [big grin]

To assist me, and I am sure other entrants, can you provide a video of the Festool logo (dark background), or direct me to a site where it can be downloaded?

I understand that this request may not be possible due to Festool copyright/trademark.

Regards

Kevin, it's precisely because I suspect that Quebec residents are being wrongly excluded in this case due to a knee-jerk reaction whereby Quebec is always excluded from contests that I posed the question to Shane to get a specific answer.

Unless there is something I am unaware of, there is no red tape.

I'd prefer not to steal any thunder from my colleagues at Festool UK, so I'll refrain from prematurely announcing their contest plans. As I understand, it should happen at the beginning of the year. If I hear details once they are announced publicly, I'll post them here for our UK members.

Shane, are you aware that the [moronic] set of rules governing contests in Quebec are only valid where the prize fund is more than $2000, and therefore are not applicable to this contest?

If so, is there another reason why Quebec residents are unable to enter?

As was already stated, due to the laws and requirements of the Quebec government regarding contests and sweepstakes, Festool like many other companies, opts to exclude Quebec rather than determining if we have adhered to these laws that don't exist elsewhere. I realize it's a sensitive topic for our Canadian customers that reside in Quebec and regret that the laws make it prohibitive for us to offer contests in your province.

This has been discussed on the forum before, so you may want to search for previous discussions on the topic if you want to learn more. Also, reference the web page below, which also states most companies just exclude Quebec and the reasons why.

Why companies choose not to offer sweepstakes in Quebec
Quebec Laws regarding sweepstakes

Again, sorry that you're unable to participate.

Surely, you could 'temporarily relocate' [wink] to a friend's/family member's address outside Quebec?

Yes, and for many people who are so fed up with the quasi-apartheid laws here, the relocation becomes an actual one!

One thing I forgot to mention is that we have worked with a good number of previous video contest participants to do additional videos over the years. So not only are the prizes at stake, but also the chance to partner with us as a reviewer.

I'll await to see what festool UK COME up with.

And how they actually get people to participate if they are not going through FOG.

Because any one who owns festool and are festool geeks are on FOG  

All the other festool owners are only going to find out through dealers or a leaflet posted and I am pretty sure those kinda people are not very likely to go and make a video.

Many of my work mates who have become addicted to festool because of me....think im ridiculous making videos.

And I know their mates who have gone and bought festool because of them would never use the Internet to watch tool videos let alone make their own lol.

Maybe if it's a large prize people might.

I don't know!  Be interesting!

No Festools yet.



Do not despair, try a face to camera/IPad/Phone discussing for example; what Festool means to you, why you want certain tools and how these will enrich your woodcraft - a testimonial.   [smile]

Thank you to those who have submitted videos thus far. There are just over 2 weeks remaining for you to enter.

I just wanted to clarify a question  had about the rules. Five minutes in length is a suggestion, not a requirement. In my experience, that's about the attention span for most people watching videos, hence the recommendation. If your video is longer, it's fine and still eligible.

Since the road show toured all of Europe, that would be my guess, but I'll check to see for sure. I wasn't aware of the contest at all, so I'm definitely not familiar with the terms or prize(s).

I will say that Festool Australia in particular will be using this to gauge whether to participate in further FOG contests, so participation is key.

Shane I can understand your nervousness, I thought there would be more in by now, but Paul  is right it will all start happening by 19th.  I have three in production and hope to post them next week.


To my fellow Australians, come on $1000.00 towards your next purchase is substantial!  Do not be  [embarassed]

Festool Australia could also promote this comp, but they do not appear to have done so on their website.

I've  got one in the pipeline just figuring out how to edit,I think some people don't want to get behind the camera, but I can't understand why especially in aus. This forum only has a few members down here so the possibility of winning $1000 of festool tools is very high. I bet all the aus members entered everyday for the last contest festool aus did and only one of us got anything.
 This video contest is like being at school again, everyone one will do the assignment the night before

Ok, fellas. We're down to less than a week remaining. Time to get those videos finished up and posted!  [poke]

You don't have to be an expert with the tools or with a camera to enter. Even sharing a basic how-to is an eligible entry. And even easier is a testimonial.

Thanks to all who have posted already. Good luck to all!

Thanks Shane.

There are some great videos there and some talented individuals. This sort of competition always brings out the best.

For anyone a little worried about entering - do give it a go. I have learnt something from every single video that I have watched - it might be good woodworking advice, a new technique, an interesting point of view or some interesting video work.

Only three days remain, including a weekend. Your window of opportunity is closing. I have to say that I expected more participation. I think the last video contest we did on the FOG product about 30-40 videos. What's up...?

He can't participate this time because he is considered a Festool affiliate. However, we now have a relationship with Paul-Marcel and have worked with him to produce other video because of his video submission in one of our contests several years ago. Think about it, one of you could be the next, hold on, wait for it.... PAUL-MARCEL.  [thumbs up]

Hi Shane,

For a start, my house is not big enough for more than one Paul Marcel to stay in 2015...

and second, do we then have 1" shy, followed by 2" shy - by the time everyone gets in on the Paul Marcel act we will have 1/2 mile shy (sounds like a pilot I know - his avatar has him sitting in the driving seat of his chopper!).

Tsk. Trust an American to convert inches to mm incorrectly. Surely you mean "12.7mm shy"?  [big grin] [tongue] [poke]

Of course, I don't know how many people noticed my original post had 12mm, which I had to edit to 13mm.

I wish I had co-workers so they could hold the phone for me. I mean other trades, I would be weirded out by the guy talking to himself all alone.

Thanks to everyone who's submitted an entry thus far. Remember, you can enter more than once to increase your odds.

Today is the last non-work day to get some footage. Tomorrow night at 11:59pm ET is the deadline for entry. Keep that in mind if you're in a different time zone.

Those of you who are email subscribers will be getting an email from us today announcing a video contest. It is not the same video contest ending on the FOG today. It is a more broad contest open to all of our customers, not just FOG members. However, the contest rules are pretty much the same. The bonus -- you can enter your FOG video for another chance to win!

Not only that, but consider for a moment the odds of winning.  For the new contest, it looks like advertising will be much to a much larger community (e.g. I have just seen it announced on toolguyd), while the awards are "only" 50% larger.  Festoolusa/Shane has really provided a great opportunity for us FOG members in comparison.  I'd like to thank them now for this opportunity, before any prizes are announced.

First, I'd like to thank all of our participants who took the time to put together a video, something that can be time consuming and intimidating to do. It looks like there were some good discussions that resulted from the videos and ideas that were shared. Also, a special thanks to Festool Australia for their first time sponsoring a prize here on the FOG.

So, the quick stats:

41 videos totaling 2 hours 54 minutes
25 participants total
4 participants from Australia with 9 videos
9 videos featuring the Domino or Planex from 8 members


Here's a playlist on YouTube of all of our video contest entries (in no particular order):



Now, I guess you want to know who the winners are...

Shane thanks to you and your team organising all of this. And for going the extra mile and getting (or trying in some cases) some other countries involved. hopefully they will see it as a good beginning and be willing to be involved in future events to some degree or another.

enjoy the dart game that Paul Marcel referred to [big grin]

That is so awesome.
Thanks so much for putting this contest together. It was cool watching all the vids roll in and seeing how everyone uses the green stuff.
The news came at just the right time, I was half way through a 6hr drive home from a family holiday and starting to get a little weary, this just woke me right up.

The timing is pretty interesting. My DW618 is starting to run rough and show sparks. This appears to be a known failure mode. So I'm going for an OF1400.

Congratulations, not only to those in NA who were awarded prizes, but to all who entered. In these video presentations we have seen people's passions for Festool, how Festool helps them at work, ideas on how to use these tools to enhance projects at home or to a customers great satisfaction, and we have had humour and satire. We even had appearances by customers in one video and a WAG (wives and girlfriends) in another.

My reactions have been from hysterical laughter, to amazement, to how could you/Ido that!

. A big thank you to Shane for his organisation and coordination, and to Festool US and Australia for sponsoring this competition.

Mike.            Locky.       Tassie BFG.          Stephen (Untidy Shop)

Maybe some good news for one of us from Shane when we wake up in the morning.

Wish it was, last time we queued for an hour and a half, mainly with the other ex colonials from NA and New Zealand. The line beside us for European and UK citizens (the one you are probably still eligible to use Kev  [big grin] ), was the express line. When I got to the front there was only one immigration official servicing my line. Next time we plan to enter UK from Europe by train.  [eek]

Just a quick update... For those who participated from the US/Canada, I think there was a delay in getting swag out but it's on the way. Hang tight, it should be showing up soon.

Thanks Shane and the Festool team!

Yes- awesome swag showed up today.  My wife asked me what it was and I told her it was a shirt.  She said they must have sent the wrong size because the box was heavy  ;D

Thank you Festool and Shane

It's ok to taunt those who didn't participate and score swag with your spoils.  [poke]

Maybe next time you guys will make a video.  [tongue] [big grin]

Can't say you didn't invite us but, some of us old timers don't do "video".  I however will continue to post my festool enabled projects since these tools have changed my furniture making experience!

Festool rocks in my opinion [wink]

Jack, I hope my post was taken in jest. I know not everyone is comfortable or technically able to do video. I do think it's a powerful media especially for conveying techniques with tools. We will do another contest in the coming months for the less tech-savvy members so stay tuned.

I equally appreciate the contributions of all of our members.

Ah that is on my list after a Kapex. Enjoy it.

And again congratulations.   [smile]

Rather smokey down here at the moment. 70km from nearest fire, but there is smoke from Melbourne to Warrnambool  as there is very light NE breeze. Could not even see workshop from house at one stage this morning. Still should be very greatfull  the smoke is not ours! The grass in my avatar is over a metre high, it is under stocked with beef cattle and the absentee farmer refuses to cut hay each spring, other nearby farms even export their hay, so she is even missing out on income.

Stay safe down there steve, i know we sent quite a few crews down to help out cause it is getting pretty major. Always remember that you can get possessions back but you cant get a life back, so if you cant defend your property get out early. And insure the festool tools [big grin]

I just got special delivery today, a much larger box than I was expecting. A golf cap, shirt... and a Sys-Toolbox 2!!! I am STOKED!
Thanks Shane for encouraging us to enter the competition and looking out for us, and Festool for making this swag ever-so sweet.

I already entered my original video into FestoolUSA video contest and I am planning on entering at least two more.

Again- Thanks!
