Everything you need to know about making and submitting a short erotic and/or pornographic film for HUMP!—Seattle's biggest, best, and only amateur porn festival—can be found on HUMP's new, improved, sexy, and informative homepage. Remember, kids, HUMP!'s got some new prizes...
NEW PRIZE CATEGORIES: Until now, HUMP! had two grand prizes: a $2,000 prize for Best Humor and a $2,000 prize for Best Hardcore. But some HUMP! audience members complained that the categories were too limiting. How were you supposed to vote if your favorite film wasn't particularly funny or all that hardcore? So this year we've created new prize categories and added more money to the purse:
• Best Humor: $1,000 First Prize, $250 First Runner-Up Prize
• Best Sex: $1,000 First Prize, $250 First Runner-Up Prize
• Best Kink: $1,000 First Prize, $250 First Runner-Up Prize
• Best in Show: $2,500 Grand Prize
Prizes will still be awarded by audience ballot. It's possible that a film could win more than one prize and that a single film—perhaps a hilariously kinky film with a scorching-hot sex scene?—could sweep the HUMP! Awards! It's like the Oscars™ with Orgasms™.
Entry forms, release forms, info about extra credits, HUMP!'s technical requirements—it's all right here. There is one mistake on HUMP!'s homepage: we're asking people to keep their films to five minutes in length. But you can submit a film that's longer than 5 minutes provided you also submit a five minute cut of your film at the same time. If the HUMP! jury prefers the bigger, longer, and uncut version of your film, we'll make an exception just for you and your film!
The deadline for submissions for HUMP! is 5:00 p.m. on October 15, 2010—get busy!
